    That wax looks good. I'm still a fan of the waxes. I still wax cars.

    Knowing the rage is coatings, I'm finally getting ready to start trying those out. Finally. I've had two coatings on my shelf for some time, and will hopefully have a chance to play with them tonight.

    But, I'll always use wax on one car or another!
    I base what I use on 2 things,

    The car
    The customer


    Not everyone on Planet Earth wants or needs a ceramic paint coating.

    That's true too.... I wasn't thinking about antique waxes and their application in modern times. But it is true that some old school paste waxes could be, and can be hard to remove.

    The key with all of them is to apply as thin of a coat as possible if it's a NON-cleaning wax like Meguiar's M16 and if it was a cleaning wax, then remove it after working it over the surface - for old/antique paste waxes.

    I think trying to go too thin is costing me some time.
    If I would have sat on my butt for the lower panels I could have put on a thinner coat of wax. Because I was wearing pants - I sat on a roll-around stool and this made it very awkward to apply "professionally" to the lower body panels.

    I should have changed back into shorts and then I could have applied a thinner coat. I'm not really a fan of hand applying anything so there's a bit of ugh.... involved.

    To that I'll add:

    Their budget.

    The more they are okay with spending, the more time I can put in

    When you say you use an orbital do you mean like a hand held (griots hand held water) or an actual DA? If it is a DA do you use a 8mm or a long stroke?
