Question Reflections Spray Wax

I spent a lot of time detailing my car last week and I want to keep that "just waxed" lookÖ

So, I was wondering how often I should use the Reflections Spray Wax? Is it something that should be used every week? Or should I use it monthly? I really want to keep it looking fresh, but I don't want to build up to much wax. Or would I be better off applying a 2nd layer of Top Coat and waiting before I use the Spray wax?

I use FX spray wax at least once a week and it always looks just waxed, no problem.

When I wash it I use Reflections Spray wax wet and dry it off with a MF.

Again looks just waxed and no build up problem.

Hope this helps.

kbshadow and others.
Again, my 'just learning' status is showing, because this might seem like a 'beginner' type question.
I understand that doing the 3 stage UWS offers protection for the 8 to 12 weeks mentioned in the 'Detail Guide' and then I'll need to Seal/glaze and wax again.
The impression I get is that the normal environmental conditions of daily driving, and the weekly washing process will gradually strip away this level of protection.
After each wash, I'm just pat drying the water off the car, and then running over it with a MF towel to freshen up the shine. Occasionally I'll use a little Showtime.
The question is, can I use a spray type wax, either FX or Reflections over the original Pure Carnauba third stage, and will this cause too much build up of waxes between the normal timing for the 3 stage UWS. or am I reading too much into this?
Tony.

Yes you can use it without a buildup, and at the same time you will keep a great shine.

I really over use the spray wax and no hint of a buildup.

Hope this helps.

Sorry to bother you again, but did I read this correctly.
Before drying the car after washing, you spray with Reflections Spray Wax, and then dry off.
Is that pat dry with a towel and then polish with a MF towel?
Then, you apply FX spry wax once a week as well.
Am I right there?
Tony.

yes, except I don't pat dry like you should I just use a MF and dry it and I'm done,, no need to buff, you buff when you dry.

Thanks kbshadow.
The guys in my local Autobarn outlet all know me by name now, so what's another couple of 'red' bottles to add to my already burgeoning collection.
I do find, however that I need more MF towels, and experimenting with differing ones of these is also part of the fun, too.
They know that I'm a high end follower of the Mothers Fora, and, from me, they are now aware of the large foam cored drying towel, which has not been released here in Australia, and they are looking forward to its release, sometime in August/September I'm reliably told.
There are quite a few of the Mothers products line that we do not have access to here in Australia, but, conversely, some of the products that were replaced 2 years ago are still on the shelves in some of the outlets here, so I guess what you lose on the swings, etc.

Tony.

I have a question on this wax. Is it a clear liquid? Is it similar to the Liquid 'Ice' wax made by Turtle Wax?
I am looking for a product that works well on black.
Thanks,
Mike

YCFDLT,

Welcome to our forum.

Reflections Spray Wax is in the class of a true wax, which is never clear.

Is any of your wax a clear liquid? I don't want the detailer, but a wax.

Our FX SynWax is a clear liquid, but I wouldn't compare it to the other product you mentioned. It's a booster type wax, not a standalone product.

I don't think such a product truly exists.
