Waxed the car with DSW yesterday after a basic prep. Snowfoam, fallout, 2BW etc and im really struggling applying it. Some panels it's not bad and goes on without issue but other it's like the applicator is too dry or doesn't have enough product on it. The applicator squeaks and catches/grabs on the paint. It just doesn't feel great. I have used both the supplied applicator and a megs one to see if there is any difference but they both do it. Any ideas?

My bonnet also seems to be an issue with the paint not being uniform in shine and colour after waxing. On top of that I have some new marks that developed yesterday. You may be able to see them on the photos attached.

Thanks in advance

EDIT: Rookie at detailing and posting

Never used it but a very mildly damp applicator helps with some high solvent waxes.

I have used it with a damp applicator but just water not QD. I am trying to keep it thin but it's so much easier to apply with more on the pad. Just a lot harder to buff off! I will give QD a go. Thanks

I have had a few issues with DSW as well recently. Might sound odd but the issues were resolved following a standard maintenance wash.

I tend to get an odd greasy layer visible I. Sunlight until I wash. Also seems to be a bit challenging to remove if left for any period of time longer than what it takes to wax one panel.

It sounds like either not all your panels are clean or your application process as already mentioned. Why not post your problem in the Bilt Hamber page under manufacturers and private brands forum- after all nobody knows their product better than they do and it also gives them a chance to clarify why other members may have had difficulties. Please post the answer back here

Ive done 3 different cars with it, different ages, histories of being cleaned or not.

Put it on with a finishing pad on a DA each time and it goes on thinner than i can manage by hand and comes off very easily - as long as you dont leave it to cure hard. Did it once and wont do it again.
