Re: Car Wax Question need response asap (desaiajay)

IMO, you got to take it off when it dries. The longer you keep on, the harder it will be to remove...

I would suggest that you go out and wipe it off and buff it up tonight!<br> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">

I generally work on a small area at a time, no more than a single body panel, usually much less (so as not to let the wax dry too much before buffing). Leaving it on overnight won't likely do any harm, but you should certainly buff it before driving the vehicle or leaving it outdoors.<p> - Mark

Use Zaino (Z2pro). IMO it is superior to any wax (I tried them all), can be left on for long periods of time and comes off easily. I would not drive around with any product on a car, as the finish will accumulate abbrassive debris that you rub in when buffing.

Klasse is a great product, all-in-one followed by the pure polish......results in this on Black Sapphire.<p><IMG SRC="http://img453.imageshack.us/img453/9829/lastphotoofr6li.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: (sniz)

speaking of wax,<p>anyone have a good solution to get the wax off the side door flares? the yellow wax looks great on the black side door flares. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (sniz)

Another benefit of using a polymer wax like Klasse, Zaino is that it doesn't stain the plastic moldings.

Actually, for our old convertible (shown often) I will put on one coat of wax and let it fully dry. Then put on another light coat over that, and buff off. Mequires Gold Class and Griots Best Of Show both come off easily with this process, and leave an incredible depth of shine - the kind that is unrivaled from either doing it in one step. A ton of work, but the shine is so deep that on our Ford, a dog was staring at her reflection in the black part and actually kept leaning in until she smacke her head - deceptively deep reflection.<br>Just my 2 cents.

Sweet black grill <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>I was stupid and used turtle crap and now you can see the wax build up in the little rock chips. How can I strip all the wax off and redue it.<p>

If your rock chips are that bad you may need touch-up paint. <p>I have actually liked the protection of the turtle wax hard shell wax. I usually use that as a base, and then put a better wax (P-21S) as a second coat. The turtle wax protects well and seems to out-last many other waxes.
