The Auto Finesse® Passion carnauba car wax is a professional-grade ‘hard’ wax, developed specifically for vintage, cellulose, and high solid paint types. This hard wax blend is infused with paint nourishing oils to bring new levels of gloss and depth to vintage paintwork, whilst helping prevent fading from UV and other environmental deterioration.
The passion-fruit scented wax contains 45% T1 Grade Brazilian Carnauba Wax by volume, with the remainder being made up by all natural Beeswax, Candelilla wax, and oils, and is capable of protecting a daily driver for up to 4-months (potentially more, if layered).
Prior to waxing, ensure the vehicle is clean. Use a clay bar to ensure there is no bonded contamination to its surface. If paintwork hasn’t been polished in the last 6-12 months it’s wise to prep the surface with a pre-wax cleanser.
Use a foam applicator (Waxmate) at half a turn in the wax pot – this coats it ready for waxing. Apply using small, even and overlapping strokes. Wax goes a long way so use sparingly. One you’ve completed one panel, move to the next panel, then when that is complete buff off the previous.
If wax has dried, or ‘secondary hazing’ of the wax occurs (A phenomenon which can sometimes happen in hot or humid climates, especially if the product was over-applied.), you can use a water-based quick detailer to help ease removal of the residue. Wait at least 3 hours before applying additional coats.
Do not wax the vehicle if temperature is below 6 degrees Celsius, or above 25 degrees Celsius. Waxing in direct sunlight, or conditions of high humidity can lead to over, or under-curing of the product before removal.

Before waxing, make sure that the vehicle is clean, and cool to the touch. If bonded contamination is present, use a Clay Bar to prep the surface for best results. If the paintwork is lightly marred, or the vehicle has not been polished in the last 6-12 months, it is also advisable to use one of our signature Pre-Wax Cleansers in order to create the maximum shine. Place an Auto Finesse Waxmate foam applicator inside the pot of wax, and rotate it half a turn to prime the pad with product. This is typically enough wax to protect a single moderately-sized panel, though this may vary depending upon the condition of the paintwork. Apply the wax to the panel with small, overlapping circular strokes, light pressure, and in a consistent pattern to obtain full coverage of the paint. If the applicator feels like it is starting to run dry across the surface, or coverage becomes uneven, return the applicator to the container using another quarter-turn of the pad to re-prime the foam. The goal when waxing is to apply the product as thinly and evenly as possible, since a little bit goes a very long way to protecting and enhancing the shine of your vehicle.
Once you have completed one normal-sized panel, or half of a large one, move on to another section of equal size. When you are done waxing the second section, you will be ready to buff off the wax from the first using a plush Microfiber Towel. Alternating in between buffing and waxing panels until the vehicle is fully protected allows you to maintain the ideal curing times for the wax, and makes for very easy removal of the remaining residue. Auto Finesse Passion only takes a few minutes to cure, so take care not to let the product dry onto the surface. If the wax has been allowed to dry, or ‘secondary hazing’ of the wax occurs (A phenomenon which can sometimes happen in hot or humid climates, especially if the product was over-applied.), you can use a water-based QD like Auto Finesse Finale to help ease removal of the residue. When applying multiple layers of wax for extra depth, wetness, and protection, make sure to wait at least 3-hours in between coats to allow the organic solvents to fully flash.
Do not wax the vehicle if the ambient temperature is below 6-degrees Celsius, or above 25-Degrees Celsius.
Waxing in direct sunlight, or conditions of high humidity, can respectively lead to over or under-curing of the product before removal
