Either wait a month with a wash a week, or use polishing compound. You CANNOT put it over wax. At least not FRESH wax.

you said it can be used on the glass, since its hard coating do you tihnk it could smooth out those tiny chips and pits in the glass?

Just curious, why don't you want to put it over wax?

Because it says not to on the can.

You want it to bind to the clear coat or paint. Wax will provide an unstable base.

The first phase of the 3 phase wax systems you find in auto stores (Mothers, Meguiars, etc) is a "Pre-Wax Cleaner" that removes old wax (and oxidation, embedded dirt, road salts, tar, stains, and other surface contaminants that may have built up). It basically prepares your paint for wax, or in this case, Liquid Glass. So if you have these 3 phase systems lying around, use the first step. You want to get the paint as clean as possible. Washing alone usually does not get everything off your paint, hence the need for the first step cleaner. If you have to, use a claybar as well. Feel your paint to make sure it is smooth.

Of course as Bill said you can also use polishing compound.

It did look a little streakish this morning with dew on it. I'll need to follow their instructions to correct that. Just too dark last night to get it done.
