Removing wax before ceramic (CGQuartz)

Hi all

Recently did a two stage correction on my vehicle (Kia) using Menzerna FG400 on an Orange CG hexlogic followed up with Menz 3500 on a White pad. (I'd washed, de-tarred, IronX'd and clayed before the polish step)

The day got away from me and my wife needed to use the car so instead of my CGQuartz I had to slap on some LSP that was quicker to apply to protect my hard work. I used a coat of Collinite 915. The paint looks great!

But, I want to take off the wax and apply my CGQ. As the vehicle is fully corrected I would rather avoid polishing it again (it all removes paint right??), but I do have things like Lime Prime available. So, what's the best way to strip the wax off to make the surface "ceramic ready"? Or do I need to do a few passes with something like Menz 3800 followed by CP Reset to be totally sure.

Thanks in advance!

A strong mix of traffic film remover should take the wax off - it'll be pretty obvious by the water behaviour when rinsing. Some might say use APC or dish washing soap.

A good wipe down with panel wipe / IPA before coating application too
