First go with the AG aqua wax

Seems nice and shiny - all I need to do now is figure out how the wash it faster as there's no point in using aqua wax if one side of the car has dried spotty before I can wax it..

Re: First go with the AG aqua wax

i usually take mine for a spin up the bypass before i put the aqua wax on. can be used on wet or dry panels i think.

Re: First go with the AG aqua wax

you could dry the car and then use the aqua wax, just keep the applicator pad wet. Works for me

Re: First go with the AG aqua wax

Always use it when the car is soaking, after the final rinse

Do you use a wiper to take off any excess water before applying the AG - as it says in the instructions?

No I don't as I found that the Aquawax dried too quickly & became sticky as a result

Works really well and as I've said before, I think this is a miracle product & the best innovation in my 20 odd years of washing cars

Re: First go with the AG aqua wax

when i used aquawax on a wet car this weekend, i found i still needed to give it a final buff to leave it shiny.

Re: First go with the AG aqua wax

Yeah that's the disadvantage if the cloth is too wet, but doesn't take long with a dry MF cloth after.

Re: First go with the AG aqua wax

I'm not a huge fan of AG stuff, but the Aqua wax is great stuff. I tend to use it pretty much every wash. I don't bother to dry the car first, & use one MF cloth to apply it, & 2 MF cloths to buff it off. Very quick & easy results.

Re: First go with the AG aqua wax

If you've already waxed your car previous, Aqua wax is probably the best way of maintaining the finish. In theory, if used after every wash, you would never need to wax again!

Re: First go with the AG aqua wax

On silver cars especially, only one microfibre is needed.......rinse car, do a side at a time with aquawax and wet cloth then ring it out well and wipe off any water or marks left. Decent microfibres hold so much water I never find the need to use a dry cloth, not tried it as much on other colours mind you!

Re: First go with the AG aqua wax

Yep great stuff is Aqua wax, but does dry quickly. Bit tricky in a hard water area so I use an ionising filter for the final rinse, then spray on the AG after a quick wipe. If I wipe too much water off with the chamois before applying aqua wax, it gets too sticky and is a bugger to wipe off!

Re: First go with the AG aqua wax

Its amazing stuff but im sure ive used far too much! Out of interest how many sprays would you use on say for example your door? My supplied cloth is soaked in it and im wondering if i should just leave it like that rather than wash it as i could probably use it on my next time. Some advice would be nice on this thanks. Im sure ive nearly used half the bottle

Two squirts to a wet door. You really don't need much.

Re: First go with the AG aqua wax

those pictures look lovely, well done on the shine

I honestly can't bond with AG Aqua Wax, didnt rate it one bit but i thought i'd try it due to this forum seeming to have a little hardon for it

I use a product called Naviwax from Home - Nubawax Car Care Products
it can be bought for far cheaper than the website has it for if you shop around and its just as easy to apply as AquaWax, it gives a deeper shine and lasts longer.

Just my 2p worth.
