So my wife and I just purchased new cars, and I'm obviously very motivated to get them protected and cared for properly as soon as we take delivery. Over the years, I've heard a lot of various (and often conflicting) "facts" about how one should care for brand new paint. I've heard you shouldn't polish the car at all, for fear of the paint not being properly cured, and the same about wax - "you can't seal the paint with wax/sealant because it's still curing". I've even heard that you can't WASH a new car for some amount of time, again for fear of the paint not curing properly. I'd like to get through all the BS and get to the actual facts, and I know we have some pros in this forum (like Scottwax, for example) that probably have the factual information I'm looking for. So please, share your thoughts on how I should best care for the paint on my new cars. For me personally, the cars are Acuras, so if I should know anything specific to that brand, let me know, but I'd like this thread to serve anyone looking to learn about how to care for a new car. Cheers!
