    It might. You're at a borderline temp, but can be done. Humidity might also play a factor for removal.

    If it were me, I'd likely just try waxing one panel at a time, rather than applying to the entire vehicle, and then trying to come behind to remove it all.

    As far as durability issues by doing such a quick wipeoff, I don't think such will be adversely effected.

    •IMO:
    -(The panels’ temperature notwithstanding)...
    The main issue of removing Collinite #476 when
    the (air) temperature is hovering ~45°F, is the
    affect it may have upon the product’s “drying time”.
    -Collinite addresses this issue in the below Q&A:

    **************************************

    WHAT ARE THE DRYING TIMES OF OUR PRODUCTS?
    By: Collinite | May 29, 2019


    •Drying times depend not only on the air
    temperature
    but the surface temperature
    as well.

    -The ideal surface temperature is lukewarm
    to the touch, or as close to room temperature
    as possible.

    This will allow for the wax to dry at its normal
    time which is around 1 minute for a cleaner-wax;
    3-5 minutes for a liquid-gel wax; and 1-3 minutes
    for a paste wax (on average).

    Of course these times will vary based
    on wind, humidity, heat exposure and
    thickness of application.


    ***
    As soon as the wax has shown a pigment,
    or cloudiness after being applied, this means
    it is drying or “hazing”.


    •We recommend waxing at air temperatures
    between 55°F-80°F, whenever possible.

    -Waxing a hot surface or waxing in direct
    sunlight is not recommended.

    ************************************

    Hope this helps.

    Bob

    I think you’ll be fine. Applying indoor (garage)?

    I’ve applied numerous sealants and LSPs in the 40s (including 915), and as long as their isn’t windchill causing areas to partially freeze, it seemed to work fine. Maybe some reduction in performance but possibly nothing noticeable. I like Mark’s idea of applying to smaller areas and then wipe off.
