    Default Applying Spray Wax

    Hi Guys,

    Detailing seems to be getting very popular so I thought I would put together a "How To" with regard to applying Spray Wax, this will ensure your car stays pristine all the time.........so here you go: -

    Tools required - Spray Wax (I like Megs NXT), 2 x MF cloths.

    Application: -

    1) Fold a MF twice, you will have 4 layers under your hand.

    2) Apply Spray Wax to the MF, I give it 3 squirts first then 1 per panel.

    3) Apply to each panel in straight lines i.e. roof front to rear.

    4) During the above application DO NOT turn the MF cloth.

    5) When all panels have been done now is the time to TURN the MF.

    6) Wipe down the whole car with the above MF, again using straight lines but this time a 90 degrees to the first.

    7) Now using a clean MF buff up reverting back to the original front to back straight lines.

    NOTE: - Remember THIN is the key and using straight lines simply ensures even coverage and no streaking.

    HTH

    PS the above sounds long winded but believe me it has taken me longer to write it than it does to do it

    Used megs NXT for the first time today, after Bryans advice, bl00dy excellent stuff, car is like a mirror and it just took 1/2 hour after washing .. Now a part of my Sunday routine (off to F&M tomorrow so had a good clean today) ..Highly recommend it for keeping the car between wax`s ...

    You forgot to mention not to face into the wind when spraying, like I did in my haste to use it on the wifes Punto a while back.

    Stood back to admire my work, looked around to my car and it was covered in little white spots! So mine got a second coat!!
