General rule on waxing is no sooner than 30 days after painting (tempatures and climates cause this to vary a bit). I've had mine for 60 days now (1st in St. Louis). The paint and clearcoat must be fully cured before stripes are applied and dealers offer paint sealant at time of delivery and sealant is wax on steroids. You can wax at delivery if you want to. Just so you know, you can apply sealant or wax to your stripes too. The reason I did the wax is because the trees in the midwest are spitting sap (very fine, almost mist like, can be detected on winshield/glass). If you park near or under a tree for any length of time you need something to protect your paint. The new advanced waxes also protect from acid rain, UV rays and other elements. Suggest you get something on your paint soon.
