Meguiars Gold Class Wax........

Today after getting my new paint job, I did the complete 3 step meguiars. After that I used the Meguiars Gold Class Wax on my car, I was left with some residue that is kind of greasy on my car. You can see the smears from it. How do I get this stuff off?

civicdude will become famous soon enough
Wait a minute....You did a 3 step on fresh paint???? Your not supposed to touch the paint for 1 months time. The paint needs time to cure before you wax it. Why would you clean new paint. I am lost. I hope that you did this after the paint had time to cure. Maybe thats what you are saying, I dont know. If you want to remove the haze, you can try 2 things. The first one would be to wipe the car down with a micro fiber towel. Micro fiber is a really fine material that removes excess wax, haze, streaks....etc. If this doesnt work, you may want to rewash the car. I sometimes hose the car down after waxing. Water makes the wax stick to the paint. To remove the haze though, you will have to rehose, soap, rehose and dry with a chamois or a lint free towel.

You can also use Meguiar's Final Inspection spray with a cotton terry towel, that is supposed to take off wax haze and fingerprints and stuff..

I use the same stuff and I know what you mean about a greasy residue. Invest $80 and buy a 10" orbitor/polisher from Sears. Buy the Lambs wool polishing bonnet along with the standard terri-cloth bonnet. I put the wax on by hand then take it off with the Orbitor with the terri-cloth bonnet, then after all the wax is removed, use the Lambs wool bonnet for a final polish, your car will gleam!!!! It looks "wet" after your all done. BTW is your car Black???

When I got my car back from the bodyshop, they told me NO WAX at all for at least 30 days. THe paint needs time to cure. I know, it makes me nervous too from the elements, but you just have to be careful for a few weeks. I also use Meguiar's Gold Class Wax, just wipe it down with a cotton detailers cloth and the smears will be gone.
