    I would like to apply two layers of wax when I detail my car this weekend. How long should I leave after applying then buffing the first coat, before I apply the second?

    I will be using CG 50/50 wax.....

    Thanks guys

    i'll aim to leave about 30mins-1hr before applying second coat. In that time i could do be doing other things.

    Just hoping weather stays nice on friday. Forecasts looking good so far though
