Do you remove old wax before using a new brand maybe with different components and chemicals.If you don't does it cause patches in the finish ?

Hi Lamr, the answer is yes. You can do this a number of ways. Depending on what wax you use, there are different ways you can go to do this. Sometimes, the wax will come with a polish to use before putting the wax on. This polish will act as a removal of the old wax on your car. You can also use a clear-coat safe compound or swirl remover to use before applying the new wax. You can also wash your car with dishwashing liquid soap. This will remove most of the wax on the car. However, I wouldn't use dishwahing liquid to wash your car on a regular basis because it'll strip off all the wax on your car. Hope this helps.

Thank you for the info ! I'll try a polish or car wash liquid with wax removal properties. I'm looking for a deeper shine for my SS. By the way what do you use for the plastic interiors (dash)etc.They say silicone products mess it up.

Just my unsolicited opinion, but I don't and won't use Armor All for anything anymore. Some say it actually speeds up vinyl deterioration; I'm not sure whether that's true, or not. The one thing I know for sure is that it outgasses like crazy and makes your windows a lot dirtier than they have to be.

Among other brands, try 303 Protectant. Do a search for it on the web. The stuff's great, lasts a long time and keeps things clean instead of helping them get dirty.

Yes, 303 is a good product, albeit somewhat expensive. I have used it for years with good results. It is also really good for underhood rubbergoods. Makes your hoses stay new looking on the outside.
