    Waxing in the hot..

    Oh, er missus [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img]

    But really, what do you do when the weather is warm and the sun is shining causing the paint work to be hot?

    I've been wanting to give mine a wax for the past few weeks, but had a few bad experiences with waxing when it's warm [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    Park it in the shade somewhere or do it early evening. Or how about wash it outside then park it in the garage and wax it inside. ???

    Re: Waxing in the hot..

    I try to avoid waxing/polishing and even washing the car in the hot weather especially if the car is a dark colour.

    if you really need to do it, either do as everyone else has said i.e shade / early morning or do one panel at a time.

    One panel at a time is quite easy to do if you use thin amounts of polish. If it is still hard to do, make the area even smaller before taking the wax off. Some wax's prefer to be left on e.g. Autoglym but Meguiars should be taken off quite quickly as per the instructions.
