Adams Wax

Dylan or anyone else with experience.

How much Adams Buttery wax should I use to do the whole car? I tried following the instructiosn but it seemed like only apllying to the yellow hex pad one time was not enough wax to get the whole car done.

Apply about a nickel - quarter sized drop for every panel roughly.

I wish it lasted that long

Dylan has the know how. I'd listen to that

Wish I had known the first time I used it how much to put on the hex pad. I obviously used too much and my car was a big smeary mess. It took me a while to get it off, but, the car looked fabulous afterward....Next time the nickel/quarter size for each panel rules.

Don't take that as a hard number either guys... panels vary in size a great deal and after you complete the first couple panels theres already wax on the pad, so you won't add AS MUCH to keep going. The reference I'm giving is more of a guide, you're gonna have to use some common sense too.

Just get a thin, even coat on everything...
