Fresh paint can't be waxed/sealed/polished. Paint from the factory is baked. So you can do whatever you want the day you pick it up but, Body shop paint is not baked and is not fully cured for a couple months!

thanks.

depends how caked on the dust is. i usually use 2:1 or 3:1. but on this car i used it straight because of how bad the situation was. i used Simple green degreaser on the wheel wells.
