I just painted my IH dump truck yesterday, used IH tractor paint with hardener, just wondering how long I need to wait before putting a good coat of wax on it?

Your nose will tell you when the finish is cured, sniff it, if you can smell any solvent at all it is too soon. I really don't understand why you would even contemplate waxing for 6 months. Don't it shine now ?

did you do a test paint on scrap metal? I always do.

that lets you do scratch tests for deep cure on yer paint mix.

I wouldn't be for paste waxing it with a rotary buffer too soon.. might burn the paint into a swirl.....

I wouldn"t wax any air dried finish for at least 90 days or more, as the paint is still curing from the inside out.
90 days is an old rule for enamels and arcylic paints.

This time of year I wouldn't put any wax on it before May. Enamel cures real slow.

Cousin"s Husband owns a bodyshop and anytime he paints anything he tells everyone not to wax for at least 6 months.
