Re: Wax??

probably a little excessive. A good wax job about once a month should be more than adequate.

Even that is probably excessive, depending on how often you wash it.

I'd use spray detail weekly and wax monthly or every other month. Most spray retailers have wax like ingredients that will give that freshly waxed look.

That's exactly what I do. +1^
Meguiers quick detailer and then turtle wax ice.

It's called OCD!! LOL!! Hey, don't feel bad I got it too. It needs to be channeled on polishing and waxing mine. Has been a while for mine. I think today I polish and wax at least a section.

Same here - wash once a week, use the Meguire's detail spray ... last wax a couple of months ago still looks good as new.
