    Wax on at 50F

    Was looking to put some wax(WGF estate wax) on on the 911 until I can get to ceramic coating. The temperature might get up to 50-55F today. Good or bad idea for applying wax in this temperature range ? Only waxing the non Xpel area with wax ( from the windshield forward is Xpel). The car is a daily ride until the snow, sleet, road salt arrives after which the daily ride is the F150 (ceramic coated).

    I have applied sealants in mid 50s before, it's certainly doable, may just take a tiny bit longer to haze over and such.
    I'm Polish and I like to polish.

    50-55 should be no problem.

    And remember....... If the paint is in the sun, it will be appreciably warmer than the ambient temperature.
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    Yeah i’d just worry about removal. I like sealants in cold weather. Give a test panel a try.
