Hi

Silly question really. I bought AG HD wax for the car. On the instructions it says apply and wait 10-15 min then buff off. When I done it I was a bit weary so only done like a quarter of the car and waited 5-10min then took off.

Should I wax the full car then wait 10-15 min???

what you should do is wax one panel at a time this means do the roof apply polish then go onto anther panel (eg door)by the time youve done that roof should be ready to polish up and shine keep doing this till whole car is done then start all over again ,once thast done add sealer AG has sealer in its lifetime shine pack

Did I understand that correctly? You bought a tub of AG HD for the A1 and have used it once and only have half a tub left?

Crikey - I've used my AG HD wax 4 times now and you still can't see any less in the tub than when I opened it !!!!

If you are using a paint sealant put it on before you wax your car, carnauba wax has better properties for beading and repelling water.Depends on wax you use ofcourse.

wow you must have been applying it in clumps.

The key to applying wax is use as thin a layer as possible. I am sure AG HD wax comes with an applicator just use that and lightly rub it over the surface and then apply to the panel.

Just make sure the paint surface is properly prepared before waxing.

There are loads of websites with advice on clean/waxing and the sky is the limit.
