After something I recently saw from the guys at Dodo Juice, I had a thought.

Wouldn't it be nice if Blue Velvet could be easier to get onto the pads of the Cyclo, to get a nice thin, even application onto the panel.

So I di dthis.......

Image
First, strip down an old Lynx Africa stick & clean.

Image
Once clean, reassemble carefully.

Image
Here we can see the filling hole

Image
Loosen the lid of the Dodo Juice to allow for expansion & apply GENTLE heat

Image
Crack a can open & wait

Image
And wait

Image
Until, we have a nice liquid wax ready to poor

Image
In the meantime the stick has been stood in warm water so the wax flows into it without going solid immediately on contact with the plastic.

Image
Left in the fridge for a couple of hours, BINGO BANGO

Most innovative :cool: Do you think the properties of the wax has been at all altered by the process? Looking forward to hearing of successful applications on your car.

You do know that Supernatural wax in a deodorant stick is still intended for use on automotive finishes - it's not a "one application ... no sweating for 6-12 months" :twisted: :lol:

So you did it then! How does it work or have you not tried it yet? I think the Supernatural Machine Stick was reformulated for the job.

Cant wait to hear the feedback!

Good effort.

Well, I did the wifes FR-V with it today, did one half of the bonnet with regular Blue Velvet & the other half with Dododorant.

Looks & feels identical, we'll wait to see about the durability

Make sure you keep us up to date.

Maybe some beading shots in the meantime?

It is a great effort ... I missed the post on DW, but I'm not going to look for it for fear that it would have become too shouty and probably quite negative. I like the culture of encouragement that we have developed here.

Yeah ... let us know how you get on with it. Presumably, if it doesn't work as well at the theory then it could be melted back into the tub and used as was?

Just makes it a lot easier to get an even coat of the wax on a pad for application.

its great to see people just pick something up and been hands on with a keeness to try soemthing for themselves.
you make it look very straight forward with the pics showing the stages.
im sure it hasnt lost anything in its new form and def makes it easier to apply.
well done
