question

Hey guys,

All of the cars I have owned have been taken to detail shops or car washes for cleaning. This car however is fun to wash--I guess I just love caressing her So, here's the question--

The car was waxed by the dealer prior to pickup. Should I polish now (2 days after getting it)? I have already washed it, and just want opinions as to a good cleaning/waxing/polishing schedule. Thanks

There's no harm in waxing/polishing when the mood strikes you.

I'll go out to the garage, turn on the radio, and add a coat of Zaino, just to spend some time with my Camaro.

I lost count of the number of coats a loooonnngg time age.
