Default Need to regain that shine!

When I got my hood replaced a few weeks ago (My car and a deer had an argument; it was a draw....) the paint does not seem to have the shine that it did before. Is there anything that needs to be done to fresh paint to bring back the shine, or will just a good ole fashion wax job do the trick?

Are you able to post a pic?

It sounds like you will need to polish before you wax the hood.

Was the hood repainted?

The hood was repainted. It originally was white, but was repainted to match. I unfortunately cannot post a picture at this time but will try to soon.

A polish that I own that works great is Meguiars Step 2, OR Liquid Glass w/ pre cleaner.
