I've not used this before waxing, is it a good idea to use?
Only if you want to strip your paint...
ok thanks, don't really want to do that.
It will get the polish off though ... for sure
I had a corporate lawyer back in Nassau - he wasn't a nice person, so the association was rather brief, anyway the chap would bed anything that moved (and probably some that didn't), so his wife decided one day to empty a sizeable bottle of pure acetone (she had a nail saloon) onto his brand new Caddy ... the look on his face, when we got out of his office - priceless!
I think you are thinking of IPA (ISO Propyl alcohol not beer!) as a wipedown Remove contaminants before applying more wax and probably after clay - lots of detailers do this, mine does certainly
Yes, that's it. Acetone, jeeeeeez. Thanks John.
The wife would give up if she caught me throwing Ale of the car!!
MB’s are far too refined to have ale too...gin & tonic or Pimms
Speak for yourself!
This wonderful brewery is just around the corner, and does fabulous IPA ... so I'm thinking about it, yes
Defintel no no!
Some use IPA, and some use Panel Cleaner .
But I would just Clay it. ( cleans off contaminates, gets it smoother and makes it 50% easier to Polish and Wax ... and as its smoother looks more glossy! )
Then polish it , then wax it.
Dont see the point of getting all the good stuff out of the paint.
Some of the specialist machine polishers, apparrently want every trace of previous polish/ wax removed so their new polish or compounds work exactly as they expect i.e. uneffected by other waxes etc.
I can see that logic but its way beyond my car cleaning remit.
