    Thanks for that sound like I know what I'm doing now. But the other question I had was is it ok to try and put wax on a very cold vehicle? Does it go on ok and buff off ok? I have never used hard wax before!
    Also what do you recommend in relation to regularity of claying and waxing- every month, every 6 months? And is it ok to wash, dry then wax again or is it necessary to start from scratch (wash, clay, polish and then wax??)
    thanks for everybodies advice so far!!

    Anybody want to update me to my last question?

    Not that I will be starting any time soon!! I'll need to wait until the snow disappears and the temperature rises above -15c!!!

    If your using a sealant underneath your wax it would be even better... If your using collinite 476 then it stays on pretty long..

    You can normally tell if it needs a top up.. will start to loose it beading abilities... once a month with colly is what i do... clay would be once every 6 months-ish..

    As long as its nice and clean i dont see why you shouldn't wax it... I might be wrong.. but i do know that you wont need to clay polish then wax everytime.. that would just be silly

    Hope this helps...

    Ben
