I still believe that hot boxing is somehow useless. Max wax absorption happens at a much highter temp. 2-3 wax cycles makes more sense to me if you want to saturate the base.

remelting a single wax app more than once will physically do the same thing w/o wasting a bunch of wax - is my theory. i usually go back over a base at least 2-3 times before letting it cool and scraping off.

just got that fsc race wax in the mail - hoping it's worth the $.

Yep. You just have to let it cool a bit in between. Try to keep the temperature only at the base.

This is my Tuning room. I do scraping and brushing outside on the grass. No clean up other than a mow.

damn @craig53, that is a pretty slick set-up. tuning vices on a bench for waxing and a pair for outside to scrape? boss. that iron holder is a very nice touch. i'm kinda really jealous of that, actually. i need to get my shit more organized. right now i have iron, waxes, and tools in a big cardboard box. 😏

Don’t bother - FC 739 is a nanowax that gets deep into the base. It doesn’t need a base prep wax first. 

Some people use it as the base, with hotsauce on top. I haven’t tried that but it should be funny - after 3/4 days when the hotsauce comes off, you’ll get a significant speed boost.
