theres no reason to wax weekly. 2 or 3 times per year is fine.

I have a triple black '98 vert that I wax regularly. The wax I use is the best I have ever tried for black cars (or any color car). You wipe it on, you buff it off, very easy to work with. No powdering at all and never turns to a dry dust. Leaves absolutely no white residue. Can apply even in direct sun light. The more coats you apply, the deeper the protective finish gets. Lasts up to 6 months. Removes stains, swirl marks, bugs, etc. almost on contact. I get my supply each year at the NYC Car Show. One bottle will wax the average car 15 times or more! Great stuff, try it!

2-3 times a year? lmao
waxing the car once a week isnt going to do any damage if you do it right.

Who said it was going to damage anything? I didnt. I meant as long as you keep your car clean, you wont see the benefits from waxing weekly that you did the first few times. Thats all
