Hi again,

I have some really silly questions, I hope someone can help.

I currently have some Collinite 476 wax, I know it can last a long time on the car, but will it do any harm to apply it every month or so? I quite like applying it.

I'm about to have some minor scratches polished out by a guy I trust. I was thinking about asking for a ceramic coating, will Collinite 476 wax work ok with it?

Lastly, I've heard about drying with wax, is that something you can only do with liquid wax?

The only silly question is the one you don't ask

It certainly won't do any harm to apply it every month and I understand it can be quite therapeutic to do so. I would say that you should minimise the risk of marring or inflicting minor swirl marks when applying and removing the wax by using a nice applicator (recommended for the wax type) and a very plush microfibre.

Collinite will sit fine over a ceramic sealant but don't forget your top layer (Colli) will affect how the water behaves so you won't get the characteristics of the sealant, just the wax.

You can use a drying aid or QD (quick detailer) to aid with drying and catch any water spots/drips just check that the product is suitable for this firstly

OK, I've managed to ditch Photobucket as they seem to be on their last legs

So hopefully you'll be able to see this picture
