Fresh Paint Care

Last Sunday I had a minor incident.....I crashed!
My question is. How should I take care of the new painted area, what do I have to do...let it dry, polish it? etc.

Call the body shop that did the work to make sure, but I think you should wait about a month before you wax the area that was repaired. This will allow the paint to completely dry and cure.
After a month, wash the truck and put a quality wax on.

Warm and lots of rain here. Cold weather begins in December, but we don΄t get snow. AHHHH, I miss so much seeing everything white....., last time I saw snow was back in Dec. / 1990 when I lived in PA.

when I had the hood and front bumper cover painted, the body shop told me to wait 6 months before putting on any wax ....

I'd go with the advice to ask the body shop guys .....
