Car Just Painted, What Next?

Hey guys,

Girlfriends car was just painted and I was curious what everyone would suggest the next step to be. Did some research and people say wait a month before waxing. After said month is up, any suggestions on where I can take it to get it professionally waxed? And is there a certain wax/polsihing procedure that should be done on a newly painted car?

next step would be to install the 3M Scotchgard paint protection film to the hood and fenders, keep those stone chips off.
Also try using the 3M Paint Sealant wax. p/n 38600. It helps keep the shine that much longer.

Next step is to slowly look into selling the car. Most aftermarket paintjobs are poorly done and clearcoat will start peeling and flaking off eventually.

paint job

Hey Guys,
I have a 2004 330CiC. It has some minor stone chips that looks like speckles. I did get one bad one and made a dent about dime size. Would just like to have the hood painted. Is there such a thing as a good after market paint job?
