    To start with I have always been just a driver of a vehicle and only kept one moderately clean. No detailing at all. The occasional wax and armor all the tires.
    For some reason, with the advice of South Bound Steve, I have been doing some detailing to my truck. The more I do the more I find that needs done and I am feeling the need to do it. My keeps asking, are you ordering a bunch of crazy stuff form Amazon.
    I think I have received a shipment everyday this week.
    Today I used the 303 spray on my tonneau cover and waxaddic Tyre in the rubber seals. Also used the waxaddic on the door handles and step boards. I am thinking I will do this again in a week or so due to the last 6 years of nothing being done to them at all.

    Thanks again SBS for all the great info.

    I use the waxaddict on almost everything black (except my tires) on my truck. It makes everything look amazing, but it does seem to attract dust.

    Where is everyone ordering this to not get killed with shipping fees?

    The cheapest shipping option on CarPro-US is more expensive than the product itself.

    Order more than one bottle. I ordered two bottles and a bottle of Ech2o for the same shipping cost. Made me feel better, LOL.

    Yea, @driverdog turned me on to WaxAddict and I love it. Just ordered a batch this week to get friends and I through the summer. Shipping is a bit high but ordered multiples so it evened out.

    Tried it there. Didn't like it. Part of the problem is its really hard to apply to my tires, it needs a better sprayer. The one that comes with it is worthless.

    I rub it in with a rag until it covers the area. I don't go back with another rag and wipe off. Does that make it not attract as much dust. Everything I use it on looks fantastic after I put it on, it makes everything pop.

    I ordered the foam applicator to use for tires. I think it was like $1.25 for one I got a few

    After a few minutes, a quick buff may help. TBH, and again depends on environment, I don’t have a dust issue. With that said, we just moved to Alabama so I’ll post up if I do...:thumbsup:

    Ive tried it with the foam applicator that I use to apply Zaino to my tires with......it didn't go well. The waxaddict is pretty thick. What is tire dry?

    Haven't found anything to get this cowl area to look good. Just went and tested the WAXADDICT out on it. This was applied 15 minutes ago. I'll take follow up pics in a few days
    Before and after and difference between waxaddict and where I had put 303 on it last week. Nothing I have tried has lasted more than a day or so. I have high hopes for this stuff

    Toby,
    WaxAddict does need a quick buff after application with a different microfiber towel. My tires and wheel wells do not attract dust.

    I used to apply WaxAddict on the tires using a foam applicator but that was time consuming. Lately I have used a small/ thin microfiber rag to work the WaxAddict in. Maybe 12"x12" or so. Cheap ones.

    While the WaxAddict dwells I apply WaxAddict using the same microfiber rag to the plastic of the inner wheel well and let that dwell. I then go back and buff the tire and then buff the plastic in the wheel well.

    Total time spent on each wheel/ tire area about three minutes.

    When I get done with the four tires/wheel areas I use the then much wetter microfiber rag to do my NFab steps and mud flaps. Then buff. Makes them look new too.

    I then either throw that microfiber away or use it on vehicle #2's wheels and then toss.

    First pic is WAXADDICT vs 303 on the cowl after 3 days. It's night and day. Love this stuff.
    Did a quick wash today then WAXADDICT on everything plastic or rubber. Amazing stuff
    If you get any on the paint is buffs off very easily with an MF towel
    Do you guys use a sprayer or just apply with a cloth or applicator ?
