1 comment on Ask-A-Pro: First steps on protecting a new vehicle

    Hi Mike,

    I’ll also say congratulations on your new car!

    One thing that would be especially good on that car is to seal the “B-pillars” between the front and rear side windows. It’s made of a material (black anodized aluminum?) that seems terrifically porous, so oil from hand-prints soaks right in. I wish I had known – I would have sealed mine up good (Opti-seal or a good wax) from the start and not had to deal with removing the smudges left by passengers.

    Come Spring, I’ll be trying again to remove fingerprint oil that has soaked into anodized aluminum (tips are welcomed)! The good news is that sealant/wax seems to hide the smudges temporarily.

    Best of luck!
