    Default Don't you hate it when...

    You're waxing your car and you always get that damp bit by the rear quarterlight, or the corner of the sunroof (if you've got one ) that never dries and keeps smearing your wax, no matter how many times you rub it.

    Don't you love it when you finally finish and the cars looking a treat. Mines had the Megs treatment this afternoon and it's looking luurrvely.

    Mrs MLC thought I was mad doing it in the cold......they just don't understand do they.

    I have the solution to this, I have a compressor and full kit of air tools at home in my garage (just lazy really).

    Once the car is leathered off, I get my air gun, and blow all the water out from around the lights, and door handles and so forth, then leather again and no more drips!!!

    Works a treat!!

    I was a valeter in my early working life, we used to airline the door jambs windows etc before even touching the car with waxes, I know that isn't practical for you, but it was the only way to get it dry in the cold, little tip 4 U, try wiping off the smear with a chamois, it absorbs better than the wax off cloth. hth.
