    Brand new car, when to protect?

    Hi,

    i just brought home a brand new car, a Honda CRV, nothing exciting- but want to keep its paint looking good. It has 15 miles on it and I got it a day after it came off the truck at the dealer. When can I apply a coating like Black Label paint coating? Do I need to let it cure/off gas etc for a while longer? I know this has been discussed before but I am not seeing it come up on my initial searches.

    thanks!

    Used a very similar process on my 2014 Stingray and my 2016 WRX. So now trying to figure out how to clean/protect a new Phytonic Blue BMW X3 M40i. Looking at the new X3 next to the WRX in the garage, it's obvious that the time spent in the care of the WRX has paid off - the paint looks way nicer than the new BMW. So, what would be the process using the new SiO2 coating from Blackfire? Would it make sense to follow the Blackfire with Pinnacle Souveran Wax? Any way to integrate the new Pinnacle Jeweler's wax in the regimen? Thanks.

    Jeez Bob, when did you become so profound?
