recommended wax / polish for newly painted car?
I get my car back from the shop tomorrow, newly painted body kit on there. They're telling me it usually takes 30 to 90 days for the paint to really "cure" and that I'm not suppose to wax or polish my car during that curing stage.

I believe there are some products out there that are made specifically to aid the paint in the curing process, or at least not ruin it in any way.

Do you guys know of any?

I wouldnt risk anything. Just lay off it for 90 days. Your not even supposed to wash it for about 2-3 weeks after painting.
