    Yep. Not necessary but adds extra gloss and sacrificial layer. And it can’t hurt, especially if you just like waxing.

    Use sealant every 6 months and wax over it every couple of months. Also use spray wax after each weekly wash. Also use PA High Gloss every couple of months.

    Answer: Ron made me do it.
    Logic: It`s all Ron`s fault.

    I enjoy waxing the car, but it`s nice knowing I have good protection under it.

    Re: Do you wax over sealant ?

    I am really shocked that there are so many people still using wax, I thought the sealants, and coatings had bout an end to that for the serious car detailers. Don`t get me wrong. I love the look and performance of my P21S 100%, but it only wasted 3 weeks and picked up all kinds of contamination in that time. I just don`t have the time for that anymore.

    To each their won, enjoy the wax my friends.

    NO. Sure, I`ve tried it, but no more. IF a given LSP doesn`t give me what I want, I`ll just use something else.

    If nothing els, topping a sealant with wax precludes adding more sealant, thus precipitating the kind of Big Job that I don`t do for years on end.

    IMHO--there may not be a "need" to wax over a sealant, but for some of us it just allows us more garage time where it seems to be a lot more peaceful and tranquil than in some other rooms in the house.
