Not recommended. Using strong dilutions of ipa can soften paint and has very poor lubrication. Right product is panel wipe.

I just wash, decon with fallout etc, clay and panel wipe.

Looking at the posts above maybe we should conclude there is no fast and easy way to remove wax, it's just that some methods are quicker than others?

I think you have hit the nail on the head there.

I have read this (and actually only use diluted IPA myself as a result)... but there are far harsher products on the market, like Tar remover, which I would have thought would have been petroleum based - that can't be doing the clear coat too many favours.
