    I have recently done the following.

    washed
    clayed
    polished
    final polished
    final touch
    wax raceglaze 55 :sm4:

    I am wondering what everyone else does to build up coats of wax.

    eg

    when its time to wash again do i just wash then re apply another coat of wax or will i have to clean the surface more before applying the wax. if so how often would anyone suggest reapplying wax coats.

    Yeh, wash, rinse, dry carefully with the use of a quick detailer spray and dry gently. Then apply your wax, sometimes a little QD on your applicator works well to reduce likelihood of swirling. You're on the right track.:icon_thumright:

    I would aim to get one coat a week on until 3-4 coats are established. Then I would ease back to topping up every 8-12 weeks until the time comes to start over from scratch by decontaminating the finish (usually six months or so later). When adding fresh wax layers, John's advice is spot on. :yes:

    Me. I usually do what you do. I think that is the best process if you want to get a good output. The only difference I think are the products we use.
