Which weather? Tis different everywhere......Sunny? Cloudy but warm? Cloudy but cold...

I tend to apply the wax to the whole car and by the time i've done this the panel i did first is ready to be buffed. However this sometimes isn't the best idea, normally better to do it panel by panel. In this case, do a panel and leave it for 15-20 mins and buff a small bit off and if it comes off fairly easily tis ready :thumbs:

If it's really hard to come off then just leave it a bit longer, say 20 minutes. Make sure it isn't in direct sunlight for a long time with the wax on though, or that the panels aren't hot when applying the wax. Should be ok if the sun is just 'poking' out though.
