    did you wipe of the surplus with a micro fibre cloth. The surface should really be cool to the touch when you work on it.

    If you go on you tube there are some very good megs demos on there.

    To be honest I have never had this problem. Now you have the wax on it is all sealed up.

    You should be ok? Is it just on the top ? or sides as well.

    Silly question but did you shake the bottles well before use.

    I am wondering if you should wash one panel with washing up liquid and start again.

    When I say wash with washing up liquid I mean mixed with water.

    It may have had new paint work on the sides? Is this the one you got the other day

    It would be good if you could get a pic up

    Autoglym Ultra Deep Shine Car Polish
    and autoglym super resin polish
