    How long are you guys leaving this stuff on? I have the DP MW and when I did the front end of my truck the other day, i left it on for about 30 mins to "cure". seems as if I lost some of the depth from using the Optimum compound followed by polish. Did I leave this stuff on too long? should I have used my Poorboy's EX w/carnauba to seal, then top with the DP? How are you doing it?

    What do the directions say? Not all paste waxes have the same directions so follow what it says on the package.

    Just FYI, waxes DON'T need to sit for 30 minutes. They usually haze very quickly unless you are using too much. In addition, with the oils in paste carnaubas, often you don't get the best look for a day or two until the oils even out.
