Now I only use Griot products. They are petroleum free. They have a web site with detailing instructions that can be used with any brand. I don't know how much I can say on this site but I have clear bra on 4 of my cars & Griot's works well. There Best Of Show Wax is hard to remove but looks fantastic. Put on 3 coats before removing. I use Poly Wax on the 2 daily drivers. If you have clear bra make sure to use petroleum free products. I have no affiliation with Griot's, just like what they sell & their customer service. Rick

Thanks Rick will explore those products and yes, as you stated, no Petroleum products on the PPF. I purchased and am waiting on Pinnacle Signature Series II Carnauba Paste Wax and will post as soon as I get a chance to use it.

Do you mean you apply and let three layers of wax dry before removing it or you do three wax applications each time?

The "Best of Show" do you use the liquid or paste?

I put on one coat in the morning and let it dry for a while. After lunch I put on coat #2 and let it dry over night. The next morning put on coat #3 & let it dry for a couple hours then hand wipe and hand buff. Spots that I think are requiring to much rubbing I spray a light misting of Speed Shine. Before doing any waxing I use Paint Cleaning Clay if needed. Lightly run your hand over the roof & trunks & if you feel bunps Clay it. I use the 3 inch and 6 inch orbital buffer. Rick

I too also use only products from Griot. It's waterless and works really well.

Three coats must shine like crazy; do you use the paste or liquid wax?
