It occurred to me... I waxed my brand new RS 2.5 '02 last week. The car had an April inspection sticker on it. 12 miles were on it before I test drove it.

I waxed it with Mother's Carnauba. Quite the elbow grease it took to get that stuff on! Anyway...should I've waited for the paint to breathe? Was it too soon to wax? I think the RS 2.5's do have clear coat on them, for what it's worth.

I remember being concerned about that when I painted my '66 Mustang back in '90. The concern just popped up in my mind again.

Thanks.

Paint shops (the ones I know of) usually recommend 30 days before waxing. I think you'll be OK.

You'll be fine. If it eases your mind any, you can look in your door to see when your car was manufactured and compare that to when you waxed it. Chances are your car was a couple of months old when you bought it since it had to be shipped and all that other good stuff.
