after a prep, or just a good wash (on good days)
-

I use zymol Creame, which comes with an applicator, so mats are
Tub of wax
applicator
microfiber #1
microfiber #

Apply wax evenly, all in one direction (Don't like circles, even on my wax) as to cover the entire surface
then use microfiber #1, applying moderate pressure, to wipe the wax, removing "most" of it, but covering entire body panel
use microfiber #2 to rapidly buff remaining wax to a shine

When I buff/wipe the wax, I wipe perpendicular to how I put the wax on. So if I covered the hood in vertical "l" lines, I wipe in a horizontal "---" direction.


All by hand cause I'm an old fashioned pineapple
