yeah the car is gonna be ridiculous to keep it clean with the winter and also fight the scratches and swirls. I'm not looking forward to it. But in the spring im gonna wet sand and buff it cuz that hasnt been done yet.

What kind of wax do you use, or plan to use?

I highly recommend Zaino. Nothing else compares. I use it exclusively on my Firehawk and the finish is amazing.

i usually just used meguiars paste wax. but i would like to try something new. I won't wax the car til after winter anyway. I don't think you are supposed to start waxing a car that was just painted. It may make it look shiny but I don't want swirl marks to start up already

You should wait at least a month, But I'd recommend 3 months!

The reason is because your paint is still curring that long after you paint it so waxing it would trap solvent still coming out witch would cause your paint to fade slightly, almost not noticeable but on a Black car I would leave it be for a little wail
