Waxoyl

So i`m looking to do the whole Waxoyl deal.... How much of this stuff do you guys usually use? Also, I am just looking to do the underside for a road trip this winter... should I use the hardwax or the rust inhibitor or both?

Use the hard wax (black) for everything underneath. Use the thinner clear waxoil for interior panels (also on exterior bolts, under body capping etc.). Six to 8 cans underneath (rear takes a lot), 4 to 6 cans for everythinf else, you will want to have some left over.

I had to write a quick blurb about the Waxoyl clay bar system- it's unbelievable. I've spent a small fortune on waxes from 3M to Turtle Wax and still had a light abrasive feel to my paint. I decided to try the wax system and i was amazed- it left a perfectly smooth, shiny surface and didn't even take much elbow grease. It took all of the 'other' blemishes out as well.

A great purchase for all my vehicles suffering in the Colorado sunshine.

What's the system?, the clay to remove all wax and residue, then a polymer? Did you try the "sponge" paint protector?

A link to a brief description: http://www.roversnorth.com/RRD04/RRD...D04_page96.htm
  1. Wash car
  2. Spray Moisturizer
  3. Buff car lightly with clay bar
Voila! It did wonders for every vehicle we have and has held up to car washes well. A terry cloth will slide all the way across the hood with a gentle toss.

Is the waxoyl supposed to take forever to dry? Or does it even dry at all? I guess I expected it to act more like paint and less like oil.
I sprayed some of the black wax on my gas skid 2 weeks ago and it is still not completely dry. I cant believe this is how the stuff is supposed to work!!
Is leaving it out in the garage in the cold affecting it somehow?
Thanks for the help

It takes on the consistency of a candle after a while.

Thanks guys, I guess working out in the cold is extending the dry time by quite a bit.
