Hi all, I glazed my car a few weeks ago and have since applied 2 coats of HD Wax. Is it possible to glaze directly over the wax or will I have to strip the car right back?

Thanks folks

Matt

I did this procedure a few weeks ago and waiting for spring before next clay session. I trying to determine the best 'top up' methods!
Quick detailer or even auto glyms aqua wax will top up the wax

Personally having used HD wax, you can layer it. When I had 4 layers on I used AG Rapid Detailer after each wash, it is very good. If you were nearer you could have mine as I won't be using it again as I have moved on from AG products.

I only mentioned aqua wax as it means you wash the car and wax it in one process instead if having to wash it dry it and wax it.

I do agree that using the same make of wax and quick detailer is probably a good idea

Clay mine every 6 months, not to get rid of tree sap though. Lots of other types of contamination, tar, iron, fall out etc.
+1, My car suffers from tree sap on my drive in the summer but a nice warm wash easily removes it, i guess thats where plenty of wax protection helps.:D

Whatever you are into mate. Personally I love claying and only do it every 12 months because a clay job means a whole days hard labour. I used tree sap as an example and agree there are other contaminants. I'm not a high mileage driver so probabl why my car doesn't need regular claying. But you can over do it. Its a personal opinion of course and open to challenge/debate.

Mileage does not have that much to do with it TBH. Fallout falls on parked cars more than moving ones ;)

Claying the car takes me around 30 minutes max
Even with tree sap, it should come off easily if youve a good layer of protection there in the first place
