    I just had my car fully resprayed after some hail damage.

    Do I have to let the paint cure or something for a few days/weeks before I polish & wax it?

    You should give it a week or two supposedly to let the paint and clear fully cure before polishing or waxing it.

    Ask the body shop. They know their cure times. Usually 30-90 days. Meguiars #80 Speed Glaze and #5 New Car Glaze both have polymer protection that is new paint safe.
