    Default how 2 remove wax from paintwork

    i know its a silly question,

    but what is the best way to remove your wax/sealant from the car?

    is it good old arm work or can you buy pads/bonnets to give a great finish

    i have a silverline rotary polisher

    thanks in advance

    For buffing after application there is nothing much better than a bit of elbow grease , that and a couple of clean microfibre cloths.

    Default

    an ipa rub down (not greene king) would do it.

    or a could paint cleaner.

    megs stage 1 works without adding extra oils.

    use your rotary - work a treat.
