I've never waxed or applied any type of product really to my camaro since having it painted 3 years ago. it doesn't see rain or even cold weather really and is garaged. i've always just washed it. so i've never had experience with any other types of products. i was reading through this page: http://www.meguiarsonline.com/forums/showthread.php?37320-Meguiar-s-5-Step-Paint-Care-Cycle-Updated! as one of you posted, and i'm inspired to give it a shot. i'm thinking the M09 followed by the pure carnauba wax. the paint is fairly new and hasn't seen much weather, so i'm thinking i can combine the clean/polish in one step. anyway, to my original question. i'm leaving for college tomorrow, i may be back to drive the car in a week, or it could be two months. if i polish/wax the car and then cover it in the garage.. will it look as good when i come back as it does today? or am i wasting my time by doing this if i won't potentially be driving it for a while again?
