Re: So confused on how to detail the exterior of my baby!!

Great thread!

Thanks for all the detail and the link. I have one question, can you use any polish or wax on a new vehicle?

Thanks,

What I meant was, can you wax a new vehicle right away? Seems to me I read somewhere that you shouldn't wax a new paint job???


Thanks,

Re: So confused on how to detail the exterior of my baby!!

If you had a panel or part resprayed by a body shop then, you should wait 1 month to be safe to let the paint de-gas prior to waxing/sealing. You can safely polish/glaze the paint during this period though.

As soon as you drive from the show room though, you are good to wax/seal the paintwork.
