Exclamation best wax for new paint?...

Recently i got in a fenderbender, a good $3300 of damage and my car was in the shop for two weeks. Anyways, a day or two after I got it back, I waxed the front part of my car. My cars never been waxed before but i went ahead and did the front because the whole front is new.

Buttt... I thought i read on here that somebody said you werent suppose to wax or clean it so soon when its just been in the shop. i figured that waxing it as soon as possible would be the best to keep the paint in good condition . uh lol

Soo....heres my question:
..... What wax would be best on new paint?
--(i was thinking of using Meguiars Gold Class Liquid or either Mothers because I wasn't too satisfied with the 3-step meguiars..but maybe thats just me..) soooo...opinions wanted! thankyou!




heres a few pics of my damage....more pics soon

The Gold Class is pretty good.....
The Top end consumer wax of Meguiar's anyway.
Combines polishing oils and wax together...

Even better, you could go up to their professional line and try things like
Show Car Glaze (Polish), and HI-TECH Yellow Wax.

But if you don't like doing multiple steps, since you said didn't care for the
3 Step Deep Crystal system, then just wash car, dry and use the Gold Class!
Should look good!

Also, your car is white, so don't expect a very reflective, deep shine anyway.
But you'll give it some gloss, and of course protection!
