Waxing question

I waxed my car last week, and it looked kick ass. Then I washed it after waiting 7 days and got a few swirl marks. I was wondering, however, how long do you have to wait to do a second coat of wax. Do you have to wait even longer to apply a 3rd coat, or is it good to wait about a week between coats? Also, have people had good experiences with Blitz wax, or do you recommend something else?

Yes that is true, but I have seen people who wax once a month or even more frequent, and often times add more than one coat. I was wondering, do you have to wait between coats, and if so...how long? Also, what type of wax do people use and have they ever used Blitz?

Blitz is carnauba so once you put one coat on you can immediately add additional coats. If you are using a sealant then sometimes the directions will ask that you wait a few hours between coats to allow the initial coat to bake on.
