3 times in the last 4 days for me. Also 2 coats of P21S and 2 coats of wheels wax.

Anyone else going overboard as the weather is nice?

Once a week for me, wax once per month.

That's enough. I've not got a repetitive/compulsive disorder like some of you guys [:p][:D]

Is it ok to wax one coat after another, or should you let it cure over night?

Essex, try the P21S, I found it much better and nicer to use than Gold Class wax.

So let me get this right, I can use Meguiars stage 3 as often as I like? If it's just a wax presumably it is just building up layers of protection on my paintwork- correct?

Sorry, but I am inclinded to disagree....as long as the dust is evenly
coated there is something about how it looks that I like (rally dust :)
)

BUT as soon as it has been coated in over spray from the car in fronts washer jets it then looks [email protected]

PS just washed mine

You can remove the dust by using a quick detailer spray and MF towel, but you have to be careful with it. I would advise romoving it with a damp cloth first then applying the quick detailer, thats what I do and it looks great.

I used a damp old buffing towel for mine (freshly washed), then spray the detailer in small aread and then buff off with a new towel. Worked a great with mine.

I used the poorboys S&G I think it is called? twas a sample.
