Nepherim said:I didn't read it, it's just something I worried over before trying it. Obviously now that I've done it, I've no such concern.
The dishwashing soap was purely an attempt at cleaning all the old wax and chemicals off -- not something I plan on doing regularly.
I may try some of that Bug and Tar remover, if I can find it today.
I used to detail cars for 6 yrs we would use Blue coral cleaner/degreaser. Wash it real good but we would make sure we had it diluted. If we had stubborn tar,gum,bugs we had a bottle that was stronger to use on it. The only reason we would use such a strong chemical is to get the old wax and all the stuff all over the paint. We would then Wax the car with a Teflon wax it's more expensive but it lasts longer and will take more abuse. When we also did planes we would use Teflon Wax b/c in planes it would increase your air speed, create less drag.
