Are there any minimum temperatures (besides freezing) for any step of the outside detailing procedure? Polish, wax, etc.?

Snow, warmer temps are always easier to apply and remove any products, also low humidity is an assett. It can be done in cooler weather, its just not as easy! Some products just wont work below around 45-50 deg though....

So unless you have a garage, waxing/polishing outside in the winter is impossible i guess. Besides your fingers would freeze :lol:

I've always savored the Sping Cleaning. When the temps get to just above 50F and I can finnally clean off all the salt and grim from the past seasons snow drifts.
