Adams Buttery Wax

Hey everyone. With some extra weekend time these days, I was going to dust off a four year old bottle of Adams buttery wax this weekend. Think that it is still “good”? It has been kept in my garage out of sunlight the entire time.

Just to note: I normally just use an polisher (v38) to clean the paint and then I PNS it. Haven’t waxed in a while but figured I would (and then PNS the following weekend).

Should be fine. My bottle is close to that age and there's nothing wrong with it.

I would do the PNS first. That would bond to the paint better.

I just went through this myself. My paint was in similar condition, having never been clayed, cleaned thoroughly in over 5 years. I took a few steps before waxing but I did it by hand by myself.

This. The stronger the level of protection then you want that as a base. The wax will not last you long whereas PNS will last much longer.

try to shake it up if the product still holds and is not runny you can still use it.
