I have a white color 67 C-10 Panel Tk. I always used McGuires [all I could get here]. the wax is flat, no shine at all. the paint is still shiny under the wax.
I used McG Scratch X and a power buffer, as recom. by McG. all it did was move the wax around and it never came off.
so how do you remove all the old wax and get back to just paint?
thanks Rod in AZ

You can try a "wax and grease remover" that is designed to be used prior to painting. Check with a local parts store, should be several brands available. I use a NAPA Martin Senour wax and grease remover and haven't damaged any paint. There may be other options, check with the store.

One more thought, easy to try. Get some liquid dishwasher soap and mix up a batch. Won't hurt the paint and should remove the wax.

Dishwashing soap like Dawn is strong enough to remove all the wax.
