    Just bought a new car

    Good morning people. I'm new here, but a long time fan of Meguiars products. I have a question that maybe someone can point me in a direction. I just bought a 2015 Challenger, with the 392 engine. Its fun as hell, but my question is this. Does anyone have any suggestions for a topical spray or other type of preservative, to keep the aluminum under the hood bright? I know there are numerous products to wipe on/polish aluminum, but many places you cant get to without major disassembly. I was thinking a thin coat of something that its "fog" could get in nooks would be awesome. It cant yellow, and I'd think it should NOT remain tacky. I was thinking of hitting it with WD40 every so often, but I dunno if theres something meant for this purpose out there

    I appreciate your suggestions.
    Jim

    Welcome to MOL.

    DON'T spray WD40 on your car unless you're trying to remove tar (even so there are better products) OR are trying to protect an area from rust during the winter (which I have done for years with great success).

    WD40 is a dirt and dust MAGNET. It will cause a greasy gunk to build up that's a pain to remove (which is what I go through every spring when I wash the protective WD40 coating off the rockers, door jambs etc).

    How about furniture polish? Shouldnt yellow, but will it protect aliminum from oxidizing? Any other suggestions?

    Meguiars metal polishes will keep that aluminum looking good. Seal the metal and polish routinely and you should be good.

    Re: Just bought a new car

    When you are saying "Meguiar's Engine Dressing" what are you referring to? Something that isn't available over here?

    Thanx...
