Wash, and Nu finish....You dont need anything else after the Nu Finish. Put two or three coats of nu finish on though.

you can use it all year round. It is just a polish that lasts a long time

scott, when you say apply 2 coats of wax on, what do you mean?
after applying the first coat to wipe it off, and apply a second right after it the same day
or should you wait?
and also is meguiers gold wax good enough to last for the winter?
i know to you this sounds like a stupid question, since your a know it all...

Tarik....When I say put two coats or more I mean apply the wax, let it dry to a haze and wipe it off...then do it agian...that day...right after you remove the first coat of wax. You can apply it to the whole car and then remove it. I wouldnt use Meguires as your winter wax because it doesnt last that long. If you are able to wax your car in the winter then go ahead and use the meguires, but if you are like me and can only wax the car now I would go with the nu finish.

scott, you seem like the type that will still be out waxing his car even in the middle of the winter,
so you dont keep your detailing business runing during winter...

how long does it take for the wax to dry, after applying it to the whole car,
when done is that enough time for it to have dried, so i can wipe it right off or should i wait?

by the way around how long does meguiers gold wax last?
