    Autoglym HD Wax

    Quick one for you experts out there. I have some autoglym HD wax that I was planning on using this week but someone in another topic mentioned it being too cold for waxing, will it be pointless trying to wax in this weather or will I just need to warm the wax up before using it?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    It wont be pointless as such but it will be harder to use the wax, might not go on or come off as well if you know any one with a garage this would be a safe option.

    Ive never had any problems waxing in the cold. Just keep the wax indoors overnight and not in the garage or shed. Makes it easy to apply then

    Hmm, my dad has a garage but I doubt it will be much warmer as it isn't heated or anything but then again I dont know much about these things, plus it means he has to move his pride and joy out into the street But will ask him anyway

    I use this wax, but I get loads of chalky marks all over the car.
    I'v been told that it's due to putting a heavy coat on, so the other day I clayed it for an hour to try and remove it then put a very thin coat on after.

    should be fine unless its below freezing. keep teh wax as warm as poss, you will have to leave it longer to cure, putting inside a garage will help.

    One thing I normally do in this colder weather is apply wax by hand - literally. You can really warm it up in you hands then.
