Thanks for that.

I was reading elsewhere that I should make sure it is above 60 degrees to wax, so the wax adheres properly. Is this a correct statement?

IDK. I've sealed and waxed under 60' before with no issue. A wax coat doesn't last long anyways.

Well, I applied the NXT 2.0 wax and then the auto glym HD wax on top of that, It worked out nicely, the next day I drove to work in the rain, left my car in the parking lot at work, it is always dirty up there. When I cam home 2 days later the car looked clean, everyone else's car looked dirty and was covered in dirt, I work in a rail yard and it is quite filthy. None of the dirt seemed to stick to my paint. Pretty impressed.
