    Cloudy after Tech Wax 2

    After buffing my black enclosed motor cycle trailer with swirl X,I applied Tech Wax 2 and allowed to dry and wiped off with micro towel and it's now cloudy and streaked looking. What's did I do wrong? My truck and jeep came out great. Thanks Tommy

    Usually that sort of thing would be from applying too thick / removing too soon.

    Very true, and the most common reason we see for a streaking issue.

    Tommy, you said your truck and Jeep came out great - what color(s) are they? Black is the most unforgiving color, so even you did the trailer exactly the same way you did the truck and Jeep it could easily have shown this problem, especially if the other two vehicles are lighter colored.

    How long did you let NXT dry on the trailer?

    Thanks For the replies,Truck is white,Jeep is blue.Left on trailer about 15-20 minutes. I may have put on too heavy. Should I re-buff and try again?

    Well, as far as fixing it, just a wash or QD may help.

    If you want to see if you can fix it, you can certainly try a smaller test spot and see if a second coat helps, or your technique improves.

    I seem to drift a bit thicker near the end sometimes.
