Post FAQ on the SC430

Ok antigeek posed this question to the SC430 moderators and it is a very good idea.. We get alot of repeat questions on concerns we have with the SC430 and the resolution to the small problems that annoy us with this wonderful vehicle.. Like Lexus we are always in the pursuit of perfection so to help our fellow SC430 owners new and old out we will be attaching threads that have dealt with common concerns on our baby.. The moderators here will be opening and closing this thread to add new items that might pop up along the life of this car..

Kudos to antigeek again for the great idea to help us all out!

Default Finish Protection Products

Ok there are many products out there to beautify your paint on the SC430.. Personally I am a big Zaino fan but Genearch was nice enough to post a great forum where you get unbiased opinions of other finish protection products..

Hit this link below for that forum..

Wondering if your paint on your SC has a clear coat or not.. This link that WJS put together is a good read..

Hit this link below for that thread..

Curious about Zaino then visit their site below for additional info.. My only issue with this particular product was the dry time but that has been taken care of with a new product..
