After a wash. Didn't even add any more wax or anything. Just soap and water.

Tis all. I'm VERY impressed it has lasted this long and not only that, but still has a look like I just waxed the truck.

I have been riding with my mom to work so I just have been putting finishing touches on it here and there since its in the garage. If I needed it done in a day it would have been but I have had nothing but time seeing that i'm not driving it right now. So I just took my time.:shrug:

This is the only time that I have had my truck in their garage and it barley fits because we have cabnets against the wall and shit. My truck is outside most of the time so I need to find a good cover.

I would assume your results are dependent on your environment. San Jose, California is by no means comparable to Central Florida or Upstate New York. For areas of the country that sees a lot of rain, or where the truck is washed weekly - the wax typically degrades mush faster from my experience.

There's a ton of variables that come into play. Shampoo, are you using a QD, color, etc. If you washing your truck is really "degrading" your wax then I think you should look at a new shampoo or wash method.

The UV radiation causes the wax or sealant to break down over time. If his truck was a darker color like yours then its going to attract more sun/heat/UV rays. The higher the tempurature the faster the RATE of evaporation, and since darker colors absorb heat and do not transmit or reflect the heat that is in sunlight, the black cars tend to retain the higher temps meaning the wax "sweats" alot and the wax evaporates.

Environment does play on longevity IMO. However, last I read, you were using Natty's? The longest I could get Natty's to last was 2-3 months at most.

Very informative.

I need to pick up some Miligore....
I have a jar of it that I used once on my hood only. Personally I didnt like it. By the way its the fruita. I paid 50 bucks plus shipping, if you want it you can get it for 25 plus shipping.
