Hard Waxes (ie Turtle's Super Hard Shell)
I was waxing my civic yesterday night (BMWs in the shop) and I had never used turtle wax's super hard shell wax before. I was in the shade in the evening and I started going at it. The application was just fine. I went over 3 or 4 panels, starting from the driver side door.

However, when I finished the 3 or 4 panels and went to check on the first panel, I realized the wax had become _rock_solid_. It was ridiculously tough to wipe off and after spending about 6-7 minutes of solid buffing 100% strength,I finally got most of it off. I ended up using some of the soap solution, that I had used to wash the car, to soften the wax so that I could take it off.

Do one or two panels at a time people and make sure to wipe it off as soon as it hardens!

You should only ever do 1-2 panels and then wipe it off. Go to a harley dealership, and get yourself some P21S. Last time i bought some it was under 25$

It doesn't need to harden, just before it hardens is my suggestion. If the car is out of the sun and it was in the sun beforehand the surface may still be hot this will bake it on there.

I've always used Zymol. I love that stuff. I get the $20 bottle, but if you like good stuff check this out:
