Hi, first go with ADS wax today and found it a bit dusty when removing.

Anyone else had this or am I too heavy handed with the wax.

Car does look good though!

Yeah it will be over applied, easy given how oily it is. Two money can't by tips

1) dab the applicator in the pot, don't swipe or twist it. What is on it from a light dab is more than enough

2) don't keep going back over applied sections. I tend to apply like I'm working a polish almost. Do an area, remove, then carry on until the panel is finished. I find this way really quick, and gets the oily wax looks without compromising durability

Thanks Dan and Matt - was using a wax mate for the first time (usually use the swissvax pucks) and was giving it a twist:eek:. I guess that combined with the more absorbant nature of the puck led to me overloading it.

Also tried the window wipes (which were part of the original sample packs from Alfred a year or so ago). Needed a good spritz of 25% IPA to remove the residue (bit late in buffing it off I think). Hope I haven't affected its properties. Will see when the next rain comes! Looking forward to seeing how it compares to Wolfs glass guard.

Well the effort was worth it. Rain overnight and I was rewarded with some lovely beading which was a joy to watch as it rolled off the bonnet on the drive to work (danger of being done for "undue care" as it's so hypnotising).

The window wipes worked well also with the rain beading off nicely at 45mph.

Way too much product and needed to remove the wax almost instantly :)
I only find it dusty on the applicator when I get lazy and leave the applicator pad to dry and dust it off :D

I find that using NGPS unnecessary for a final wipedown and would cause smears and streaks. I would let Kotsos set properly before applying anything on it. It's sleek and smooth enough as it is :)
