My bumper was repainted, and I was wondering how long I should wait before I wash it, and also how long to wait before I wax it. I know I should do neither immediately. Any guidelines?
Thanks!

I think you can wash it within a few days. I would not wax it for three months. You can ruin the paint by doing this prematurely.

Until the paint dries.

takes several months to cure.

-JimWhen I picked up my car after my bumper was repainted it had a big note on the invoice saying not to wax the bumper for at least 90 days.

I left my painted parts alone for 2 weeks before washing (although you can start washing right away, but be careful). I didn't wax it until after 60 days.
