The new paints that are being used by all U.S and European car manufacturers do not require any curing time. I would assume that the Japanese paints are similar.

The older enamels used did require 2 to 3 months to fully cure and harden.

Bottom line, get the car protected as soon as possible. I use Zaino but any quality wax or sealant will start the protection.
