Post PPG Enamel Paint, I want to wax...

my car, it's been 15 months since it was painted. The painter said it didn't need to be wet sanded because the paint was enamel. I didn't choose that paint, the previous owner chose it. My questions are what kind of wax to use? Can I wax enamel paint? I use the instant shine spray on detailer, but I want to wax the car. Thanks in advance for the help.

Default Re: PPG Enamel Paint, I want to wax...

THe type of paint (enamel, urethane, whatever) shouldn;t make any difference in the type of wax, or the process you use.

Wash, with a quality car soap
dry with microfiber towels
clay, if necessary to remove embedded contaminants
polish with a proper product, the least abreasive needed for your defects
glaze for extra depth and richness
wax to protect the finish

Maintain with an instant detailer.

That should do it.
