    NXT 2 and UQD

    How long after applying NXT 2 can you use UQD ? Some say right away and some say after a 12 hour cure. I also seen on You Tube that someone applied NXT 2 , let dry and then sprayed on UQD while wipeing off .Is this ok to do.

    For best results, you would want to let the wax set up for the 12 hours before messing with it. That would include washing, QDing, etc.

    Now, you can do things sooner, it isnt as if the wax is just going to fall off.

    And I am sure you can remove the wax residue with a QD, but you are still messing with a wax that hasnt fully set up. Might not give best results, though you could try it and see if you like it. If the YouTube video guys were just trying to avoid streaks, they might want to consider applying thinner coats of wax, letting it dry fully, and removing it slowly.

    I agree with Murr. To optimize your results, I would let the wax cure for as long as possible. After the 12 hour window then I would say your okay.

    I always use a UQD or QD right after any wax or the next day depending how i fell that day to make sure i git all the wax off cause some could have stuck on paint from heat. Also it makes the car shiny and wet looking

    It's one of those things where you can be as AR as you want to be or you can make the process as complicated as you want to make it.

    Because I apply wax to our daily drivers often enough, that is before the previous coat of wax wears off, that I prefer to use the UQD afterwards to give the pair a final wipe after all the work steps are done.

    Each person can figure out what's best for them and their car care goals.

    The important thing is to dial in a system that works for you...
