    Default Using NXT Spray Wax

    This is contained in another "How To" but I thought that some might be keen to just use this wax so here is a how to specifically for it: -

    When applying NXT Spray Wax do it like this: -

    Fold the cloth (I would recommend a MF) twice so you have 4 layers, this ensures a thick buffer between your hand and the paint.
    Apply the wax to the CLOTH (not the paint) and DO NOT turn the cloth, then apply to paint in straight lines i.e. for the roof apply from the back to the front.
    When the whole car has been done now is the time to turn the cloth, go back to where you started and remove excess wax again going in straight lines, but this time across the roof (side to side).
    And finally take a clean cloth and buff up, this time going from back to front, this ensures an even coverage of wax.

    Note: The above is not a one step product and should be used in conjunction with other products.

    Hi Barney,

    If you apply polish, wax etc in straight lines it meas that you are better able to see and control it being applied evenly, this is important when it comes to avoiding streeking or what looks like "shadows" this is generally due to uneven application.

    I also mention the first application be applied in one direction then the product wiped off at 90 degrees to that then when buffing up revert back to the way you applied the product, this again helps to ensure even application.

    Hope that makes sense

    Bryan

    PS Did you remember to apply the product to the cloth and NOT the paint yeah?

    I did the wifes clio yesterday and I sprayed it on.. it ended up all over the place and it ended up being a right pain..but still looked good.. but by then it was dark
    I did mine today direct on to a polishing cloth and it was alot easier.

    see blr123 im not the only one .... but to be honest if i had used it in the way you said in your how 2 rather than the way the instructions said i may have got on better.... this is why blokes should not read instructions....
