Re: Stainless polish for use in the sun

IIMO the reason they don't like waxing in the sun is because of the quick drying time and how hard it becomes to work once wax is totally dry. I would not use wax in a large flat surface like the companionway turtle gel coat, but for small stainless steel parts it should be fine. Just don't let is sit for too long before buffing it out. Try a small part and see. Again, I think waxing in direct sunlight does not hurt the finished wax surface, it only makes it harder to work large areas without a buffer.
