How to Apply Meguiar's Gold Wax


Wash your vehicle thoroughly, and ensure that you remove all dirt and debris from the surface. Dry the vehicle off completely.


Park the vehicle in a shaded area. During hot sunny days, the wax will dry quickly and leave streaks. Park underneath a carport or in an area with good shade.


Apply a small portion of wax to start with, using the applicator that comes with the wax. Rub in a circular motion until the wax starts to disappear.


Repeat Step 3 until the car has been completely covered with wax--excluding such surfaces as the windshield and lights. There will be a slight wax residue after the application.


Buff the remaining wax residue off of the vehicle--using a soft cloth in a circular motion-- until the paint holds a shine. The surface will feel slightly slippery as you buff. Be sure to buff around creases in the vehicle--such as around the hood and doors--thoroughly. Wax tends to build up on these areas.
