    hi everyone quick question can leave wax on your car overnight, cause i was thinking to do this as i have a garage to do it in.
    (but it does make it harder to take off does it)?????
    i'll be using collulite 916 wax.:)

    Im not aware of any benefits of leaving the wax on overnight, i use collinite 476 and leave it for around 20mins to cure and its perfect!

    We have left waxes on overnight at the unit, and generally they have come off just fine as long as the air temp is reasonable... if it gets cold then the trouble starts. Best bet though is to remove them within an hour or so max of application, sooner in many cases... :yes:
