It is 'Love-Bug' season here in North Florida. YUK! So, I was anxious to try and review Rust-Oleum Factor 4 Synthetic Car Wax System in exchange for the product. After five decades of dealing with Love-Bugs the only thing I ever found effective was as many layers of carnuba wax I was physically able to apply. The whole process was hard work beginning in May and repeated again over in September as the Love-Bugs came back again to torture me and my car's finish. So, after reading the instructions I first pre-cleaned and washed my car with a degreaser detergent to remove all old wax, stains, and tar. Then, I followed the three steps outlined by Factor 4. Since it is already in the 90's here I washed my car as quickly as I could to try to keep the total time as specified, 15 minutes before rinsing. About half of the car was already dried after washing so I was skeptical about the 15 minutes. But, I followed the directions and waited the full 15 minutes after washing the entire car before rinsing. Since it was already in the lower 90's it did not take long for my vehicle to dry. Waxing – I found that there is a 'learning curve' to applying this synthetic wax out of the tube. Just a couple of small dabs goes a long way. I applied the wax as directed with the applicator in a circular motion. The applicator is ergonomically designed. It is easy to hold the grip top while spreading the synthetic wax. I applied the wax as sparingly as I could as the tube only contains two ounces of synthetic wax. The applicator did a good job of distributing the wax evenly over my car's surface. I did the right front fender panel first, then half of the right front hood. By the time I finished applying wax on the left front fender and left half of the front hood, the right side was hazy and ready for buffing. Be aware there is not enough synthetic wax in one kit for a van, large SUV, or large four door, six to eight passenger vehicle. I buffed by hand using the included microfiber towel, shaking the dried wax off of the microfiber towel, regularly. It is work, but not excessively hard. The dried haze comes off pretty easily using the included microfiber towel. The resulting high gloss is terrific (see pics). It took me about three and one half hours from start to finish. After waxing and buffing the entire car I had just enough to apply a second coat over the front of my car, which is much more susceptible to Love-Bug damage. For those of you not familiar with Love-Bugs, they are very acidic and if left on your car's surfaces for several days can permanently damage the paint finish. YIKES! It is imperative to have a hard-coat of wax protection to prevent the Love-Bug damage. I have driven my car since I used Factor 4 and got my share of Love-Bug splashes each time. However, up 'till now they have easily hosed off when I got home. Whether I can depend on this Rust-Oleum Synthetic Wax for up to three years is going to be interesting. If it just protects my car for one year I would be a Happy Camper. From my experience with this Rust-Oleum Factor 4 Synthetic Car Wax System I highly recommend it. It is a lot easier to use then carnuba waxes and the high gloss shine is terrific. Rust-Oleum may be the leader and dominate the future of all car waxes with their electrofusion process. It makes a lot of sense. I highly recommend this Factor 4 Synthetic Car Wax System. It did a great job on my car (see pics).
