    what to use on fresh paint?

    Hey everyone I want to wax my car and give it the "wet look". I had the whole thing repainted about a month ago now and I think it is safe to give it a good coat of wax. My car is white, so I would like to buy the best product I can (at a reasonable price) to give it the wet look.......any suggestions?~Chris

    that is what to use after applying wax, at least that is what it says on there. So what should I use prior to what you just sent me?

    I did'nt read it but glaze's almost alway go on before a wax...I would'nt use a wax for a month or two just the glaze. Usually glaze first when a wax....You won't go wrong with a glaze... Won't last long but it does'nt matter at this point. You just want to keep the paint fresh-- Which the oil's in it will.

    I might have said that too........

    But I had some body work done on my car a few years back and the bodyshop finshed up with a glaze before they let it out the door.... No problems.. In fact it looked amazing. And still does.
