    First wax job

    Is there a minimum amount of time you should wait before doing the first wax job? I have heard you should wait for several months to give a new paint job a sufficient amount of time to cure.

    Re: First wax job

    For original factory paint, you can wax your car as soon as you take delivery on it.

    I waxed mine that afternoon. I drove away from Zuffenhausen after lunch, and waxed it for the first time at about 4 pm!

    When you take Pcar posession from the dealer, my midnight blue looked so dam good, didnt think to wax for awhile. What I love at the dealers and WANT is their...water purification system. Takes all the water pollutants off the car so it dried like a dream and clear. My dealer told me their machines cost $20k.?? Water spots are what make me crazy. I used that Mr clean system to rinse and I give that a 7 for removing pollutants at home. anyways, goodluck with waxing.

    Re: First wax job

    Cure time with modern products is far different than ages ago, not to mention the fact that the factory bake-cures the paint, and the enormous transit-time before the car even hits the dealer. You've got nothing to worry about, you're fretting an issue that is obsolete in this day and age, and only really applied to non-factory paint jobs, i.e. local shops.

    Re: First wax job

    Instead of wax, I put on Rejex, a polymer coating that makes it easier to wash the brake pad dust off the wheels and also makes it much easier to wash off bug juice and bird droppings. The downside is that you've got to apply it at less than 85 degrees Fahrenheit and let it cure for 8-12 hours. I'm pleased with the results.
