I just picked up my car this past Friday from when it was in an accident last month. Link as you can see all front end damage.

When I picked it up they also said since the paint is new I cannot wax/buff/add clear coat etc for atleast 30 days because the paint still has to cure. But the car was already painted for atleast 1 week before I picked it up this past Friday.

They said I can wash it just not wax, and etc. So to the question.

Do you think with the paint being "new" without the adhesive damaging it?


SUMMARY:
New paint job
Safe to tape for trip without being cured?

I'm in the same boat. A minor rear end collision earlier this month meant going to the dealer's collision shop to have the rear bumper pulled off and re-painted. It was $380, paid for by the other guy's insurance. But, like you, they told me not to wax it for 30 days.
