    I waxed my 250 as soon as i got mine home. The reason i do it, is i have some home brew waterspot remover that works wonders and miracles so I like to keep wax on it because i use that stuff after everytime i use it. For wax i had some left over Zaino from my car show days that stuff is the best thing on the planet. However bout out if it, not gonna order anymore i am gonna use McGuiers now. It's almost as good for shine quality but it doesn't last near as long as Zaino.

    Now i never heard the wait 6 months to wax it story, but i did hear one about not waxing the bottom which i never fully understood why, so if anyone can fill me in on that it would be great.

    Waiting 6 months to wax is just a myth left over from the straight enamel days. I cant tell whether the paint on the red ultra is acrylic enamel or urathane but either way it will not hurt the paint to wax. I worked in a body shop for years and as quick as the paint is dry you can wet sand, buff, wax or whatever you want. I just cant figure why they didnt use basecoat/clearcoat on these things.

    waxing bottom

    You can wax the bottom, only trouble is it will wear off in probably less
    than 30 min. Ever notice how the lower rocker panels of a car lose
    wax in a rain storm quick.....
