    Voted once a month.

    No more than 2 months between coats. Many waxes don't last that long.

    There is no such thing as too much really, its not going to harm the paint if that's what you're worried about. Its just kind of pointless. Specially if you're using a cleaner wax which you really can't layer anyway. As long as you use a quality wax two coats is really the most you would need, just to ensure coverage, and you should be set for at least a couple of months. But if you like to do it and think it makes your car look better go right ahead, there is no harm in it.

    what the hell is this wax thing? hmm..my car looks pretty shoddy now cause i've never waxed it and it has massive swirl marks. but i just bought the PC buffer from tropicare. i'll be buffing her soon and waxing on a normal basis from now on.

    Well, actually not. Zaino is a polish/sealant, not a wax. I haven't used a "wax" in over 5 years
