Dont get me wrong man, truck looks good though!
I let my cousin use my buffer and the idiot that he is never turned it off when he unplugged it. When I plugged the buffer in, it kicked on and spilled it all over my hood and me. I normally do go easy on the amout of wax. That's why I have well over half a bottle left. Plus it was dusty outside when I was waxing too.

Also, after seeing the way that water reacts to it in STL's review thread of it and the way it shines paint, I really cant wait to try it.

With that being said, Ive been wanting to try Zymol and Zaino was well, Like I said, I love wax and trying out new waxes. As far as what I recommend, he said he was having a dusting problem, I think his culprit is the amount of wax. I also think that if he applied thin layers, it would solve that problem (but then again, it could be the wax). I bet he would see better results if he applied two thin layers (apply one, wipe off, apply another, wipe off). Also, not doing the entire truck at one time. I only let my wax cure for 15-20 minutes, then remove. Im gonna say it took him longer than 15-20 minutes to do that entire truck. Also, I try not to wax my trim, that is what exterior dressing is for. I do like that he waxes his windows, i may try that trick.

I usually wax the hood and the fenders, then remove. Then I wax the driver door and supercab part, then remove. then do a bedside, remove, and so on. If I am claybarring the vehicle, I do one panel at a time. I will clay the hood, then use paint cleaner on it, then polish, then wax, then move to the next panel..

I know everyone's techniques are different, just giving my $.02 if they mean anything
I usually do use multiple thin layers, but couldn't for 2 reasons. The first reason, some of it got spilled all over my hood and me because my cousin was too sorry to hit the button to turn off the buffer. Second reason was I was trying to beat the weather system moving in. Plus to let you guys know, even if you did use thin layers, it still produces alot of dust.

I know, I had an accident with the wax. I got more on me than I did the truck L.O.L. I hated waxing yesterday. Normally, it doesn't produce alot of dust but it does when you spill it though. I normally use very little of the stuff but this time around I didn't really get that much choice. I also noticed something else too. It was extremely hard to remove, even after letting it get bone dry in which it normally comes off alot easier. I've used this stuff since I had my first ranger back in the early to mid 90's. This was the first time I had problems with it ever. I hope they didn't change the formula of it. Plus I plan on trying Meguiar's Ultimate Liquid Wax soon. Turtle Wax Ice is also good, but I really liked how the Gold Class wax did on my truck. I was done in 15 to 20 minutes with that wax.
