What is it exactly that is supposed to happen if you wax to soon? Craig Fraser (world reknown custom painter/airbrush artist) and Jon Kosmoski (House of Kolor) both have said that there is no high quality wax that keeps paint from cureing. They both have said they wax every job after it is sanded and polished. And there jobs don't sit for 6 months before they are delivered. Craig said he waxes everything and some of his jobs are delivered within DAYS of being cleared. This isn't something that was mandatory with the old technology and just hasn't been updated with newer technology is it? Just asking.

Leather cleans up with a damp cloth, but don't soak it with water.

Ultraleather (100% polyurethane) and vinyl clean up with a mild solution of dish soap and warm water. For really dirty areas, use Fantastik or Formula 409.

The theory is that some waxes trap the solvents from escaping and
can lead to bubbles and other failures.
I have heard where this has happened, but realistically,
many painters wax their new paint and never had a problem.
It may be the type of wax they use, pure carnuba ithink is suppose
to let the paint still breathe.
But, if it's buffed and polished properly, a wax won't make it look
any better. Most use it to make up for an incomplete buff job.
there's no reason to wax new paint if done right, so why
not wait just to be safe.
