    ive always been advised not to apply wax on new paint for a couple of months
    a bit of polish should be fine though

    Nothing. You will need to let it breath for about a month until the paint has fully cured.

    Leave it a couple of weeks and then cut the surface with Farecla G3 cutting compound, applied with a wet machine mop.
