rewaxing

hi, i was just wonderin...
about applying wax if a car has been waxed or if you don't know would you need to strip that preexisting layer of wax before you wash, clay, then rewax ??

Just wash and then wax. The new wax should remove the old, and then you buff out.

exceldetail is an unknown quantity at this point
Waxes actually float on the surface, vs. a sealants which actually bonds.
In laymens terms, take a slice of bread, coat it with mustard. Add more mustard, thats a wax.
Now a sealant, take a slice of bread, add a peice of bologna, then add another piece. Thats a sealant, layerable.

I would just add to be cautious if you're using a different manufacturer's wax... in that case I would remove old and apply new to clean/clear paint.

First it is needed to be washed and then you should wax it..But you should be very
careful before using wax..see that they are from same brand..and if they are different
check well before use
