Default How long until scratches appeared in your paint?

Just wondering. After a new paint job or detail, how much time passed until the hairline scratches and marks started showing up again? My new black paint job was immaculate for 5 days.

Thats all going to depend on how you treat the car. If you wash it pre rinse it first otherwise your going to grind the dirt into the panit and cause the scratches. If you take it thru a car wash you will get some marks also. Keep on top of it and it should look great for a long time.
