    The only time I've attempted to wax one of my vehicles I fucked up. Put it on the jeep in the sun. Applied wax to entire car before starting to wipe off, and well, let's say there are parts that still have dried wax on it. That was several years ago and I no longer own the jeep.

    I'm dying for a power tool set and I notice one set has an optional 6 inch 18 volt buffer. Wondering if this is the last straw that will justify me purchasing the set :naughty:

    Also set comes with 18 v wet / dry vac that sucks like a sumbitch.

    Either step up to the Porter Cable or wax by hand. Don't glob a whole bunch on and let it sit there either. Use a thin layer and wipe off as soon as it hazes, which is usually about a minute or so. Apply a section or two at a time and remove, it will be a lot easier.
