Ok, I'll answer my own Q after reading various articles - min 60 days.

So I figure I'm good as it has been 120 days.

How soon can you wax your cars paint?

One of the most often asked question (besides Leather care and Glass cleaning) and a subject that results in a great deal of confusion and misinformation regarding polishing or waxing re-painted panels.

Many paint company now say the 30-90 day recommendations are based on old paint formulations and the p-Sheets need to be up-dated in line with the latest paint specifications, although to my knowledge this has not been done. Most paints can have a paint protection product (wax / sealant/coating) applied within 36 – 48 hours of painting.

However I would still abide with the manufacturer's official recommendations

Apologies for typeface, this site has a mind of its own
