Default How long to wait after paint before wetsanding and buffing?

Going to try and get the paint looking as good as possible, how long should I wait before I do this? It was a basecoat/clearcoat paint.

depends on the actual type of clear used but I assume it was catalyzed? Also was it baked in the spray booth? Any way a week should be enough. Wet sand the whole thing and then let it "breathe" for a few more days before buffing.
