You want to apply it to a prepped surface. That means washed, clayed if needed, and then had a paint cleaner used. A polish after the cleaning would be optional.

Then, you would apply the wax in a thin coat, and let it dry, and buff off.

Then wait at least 10-15 minutes, and apply a second thin coat. Then buff off.

NXT 2.0 looks great on a properly prepped vehicle.

#80 by PC with a polishing pad followed by NXT 2.0 is a good combination.

If you are doing your prep by hand, ColorX followed by NXT 2.0 works good, too.

A new thread with the question would probably get more attention than tacking it on a NXT 2.0 poll.

Like Murr1525 posted, use this wax on a clean, smooth finish.

What are you working on?
What condition is the paint in?
Does the surface feel as smooth as glass?
When was the last time anything was done to the paint? As in when was the last time the paint was clayed, cleaned and polished?

Is this a brand new car in your garage?

Or is this a daily driver, a few years old parked outside all the time?

Is the paint clear and shiny right now?

The key to getting great results with any car wax or paint sealant is to first properly prepare the paint to accept the wax.

I voted "great" because it was the first wax I used so I couldn't compare to anything else. But it's all I'm going to use and I do love it.

Mate, I don't wish to sound rude, but can you please use punctuation. It's very hard to read and it feels like you said the whole paragraph in one breath. :chuckle1

I was breathless after reading it! :D

Just to note, reading text on a monitor tends to strain a person's eyes, one way you can reduce the strain is to break up large paragraphs into smaller ones by hitting the ENTER key a couple times after a sentence competes a train of thought.

Like this.

By breaking large chunks of text into smaller chunks and with the addition of more white space surrounding the smaller chunks of text it draws your reader in versus scaring them away.

Make sense?

Hope this helps...

On a surface that has been properly prepared, NXT 2.0 Tech Wax (paste and liquid) is amazing. :xyxthumbs

I use it on a friends 64 Impala (garage kept, weekend cruiser) almost every time we wipe it down (Final Inspection) Amazing results, even on a light blue mettalic!

The only problem I had was getting the paste evenly applied ( I was applying too much), but after a couple uses, I love it.

2 weeks ago I used Meguiars cleaner wax.
Yesterday I put on a coat of NXT 2.0.
The NXT buffs off very easy.
The new FJ looks great.
The Brick colour really popped.

On a well prepped surface, NXT Tech Wax 2.0 gives off a nice glossy look and is very reflective. I have gotten NXT Tech Wax 2.0 to last four to five months before, which is great for the winter months when its harder to detail. I like to app;y the product with a Meguiars Hi Tech Applicator pad and remove with a Supreme Shine Microfiber. NXT tech Wax 2.0 wipes off so easily too.

NXT is a carnauba product or a synthetic sealant?

Be certain to let it dry; do the swipe test.

I love it for the fact that it is SUPER easy to use, probably the most user friendly LSP I've ever used. Its lasts fairly long and looks really nice on light color cars (silver and white); at the same time, I have found products with better longevity and looks. I'm a bit of a carnauba snob, but I still keep a bottle of NXT liquid in my detail bag on every job and estimate I go on. There are lots of situations in which NXT is my go-to product. A little goes a long way and I still have 1 1/2 bottles left!

The number one cause of streaking with NXT or any other wax is using too much product. The average person uses enough wax to wax 10 cars in a single application - literally.

Michael Stoops posted a prime example pictures from a Thursday Night Open Garage where the wax was so thick on half of the car that they were able to wax the other half without adding any more wax o the applicator.

When I apply NXT 2.0 or M21 2.0 I apply it so thinly that I have to have proper lighting to even see the light haze. If you put it on thick enough that it has raised ridges and sections - you are using WAY too much product. Then you when go to remove it you are only removing the top layer(s), and the streaking is caused by the additional layers of still-wet wax underneath.

Hope this helps. :D
