Question Changing My Plates Today...

Hi guys and gals,

Today is a sad day for me. When I get home from work, I have to remove the beautiful Maryland bay plates from my baby, and replace them with craptastic DC "No Taxation Without Representation" plates. -Sigh- It's official, I've moved.

My question is, (I have no plans to wash and wax the car today), are there any special considerations that I need to take into account when swapping the plates so as not to damage the paintwork in the process? Once the MD plates are off, should I QD the paint underneath before putting the new ones on? Leave it as is? I'd appreciate some advice.

Thanks.

Wouldnt hurt to clean under the plate and apply some wax or what not for protection under there. You can always put a towel under the plate so it it drops it wont scratch the paint at all.

Its also alot easier to clean all around where the plate is when its off.

Do I really need to apply more wax if I just QD the area?
