Not really, waxing is simple. Keep it away from vinyl mouldings etc, you shouldnt have any problems doing it.

Re: Tips and Pointers for complete car cleaning *wanted* (Dharam66)

Wax: <br>Currently in the detailer's world, the latest rave is <A HREF="http://www.duragloss.com" TARGET="_blank">Duragloss</A>. If you are lucky you can get them at some Chief or Napa auto stores. You can also order online from the company directly for a flat rate of $4.95. The wax everybody is talking about is Total Performance Polish (105) and a spray wax AquaWax. Most people seem to like their entire product. If you want to prep the paint and make the wax last longer you can try their Polish Bonding Agent (PBA). The good news is that these product are fairly affordable. <p>Interior: <br>I see a lot of people use Woolite diluted 6 part water to 1 part Woolite to clean interior. I use it to clean my mats and leather. I don't have t-tec so I don't really know how well it clean those. Should be fine though.<br>

The Mr. Clean auto-dry thing is the shizznit.<p>If you don't like the soap they use, then use your own soap, but rinse your car off with the Mr. Clean water and wait- it really dries spot-free. Then use the wax of your choice.

I'd like to add that I've had outstanding results with Mother's Reflections wax as well and it comes off with ease. Also Malco cherry Flash is a good choice for ease of use.

I tried it on my car and it didn't work. Probably because the water is very hard in my area. I'm back to using the old method of final rinse of running the car with free flowing water then drying what's left with a waffle weave microfiber.
