    Default Excess Wax

    I got back from my latest jaunt to:

    A: see that the window fitters we have in have pebble dashed the car!

    B. All the work from last week has left excesive wax in hard to reach points.

    For example the join between the door strip and the door is now a solid white mass. As are the roof bar cover points panel joins and so on.

    A. was easily solved..

    B. is a little harder as ,my clothes won't get in there. I have a detailing brush but the wax is too thick

    Any ideas?

    the triple duty brush has 3 types of brush on it, all of which are stronger / harder etc than the slide lock type, which is realy only for stippling at badges and vents etc ..

    jet wash is my answer ..
