I'd say you should ask the people who painted it... while their instructions made sense to me... you can't really be expected to keep your car in a warehouse for three months. but ya I'd suggest asking the folks who painted it - otherwise you could hold out for a reply here.

Do not wax your car....I dont know about 3 months. Since it is getting warm now it may take shorter for the paint to cure fully. You may be able to get away with not waxing for 2 months. You still can wash the car....just be careful that you use clean wash mitts and chamois....you dont want to scratch the paint.

I would leave it alone....Nothing is going to happen to it.....Dont worry so hard...I can see your vains popping from your head....and I live really far away from you....When the 2 or 3 months is up you can go on a waxing frenzy

conspiracy90 is an unknown quantity at this point
Meguiars says you can safely polish fresh paintwork with #7. Though it will not give protection it will still feed the paint with valuable oils.

don't apply any polish or wax, just wash it with soap and water. If you find some bird crap or something on it, just whipe it off with a soft damp wet cotton cloth. Wait at least the three months it will be better in the long run
