Re: (swedeman)

<A HREF="http://www.turbowax.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.turbowax.com</A>/<br>I got one of their basic kits with the shampoo, oxidation bar, pre-wax, and wax.<br>I saw this on a Cobalt forum I used to belong to, and it got good reviews. Everything was SOOO easy to apply and take off. I highly recommend it.

Re: (swedeman)

It was about 2.5 hours. I thought it would have taken a lot longer. Like I said before, everything was so easy to apply, and then to take off. It's not like other waxes where you have to buff your ass off.
