Is there such a thing as too much waxing??? Let's say I wash my truck once a week... would it be overkill to wax it every week too??

If you have all that free time, then not really. If you're doing it to achieve a constant shine, then you should just use meguiars nxt spray wax, quik wax, or quik detailer.

I used to wax it every week, but now once or twice a month. My truck is hardly outside in the sun, so there's no need.

Every week certainly isn't necessary. Even the worst waxes, in regards to durability (usually those with high carnuba contents), will last three weeks or more. It won't hurt anything, but you won't really benefit, either. I wax my car 1-2 times a month, usually because I'm bored, though, not because it needs it.

I just started using a product called Duragloss Aquawax (tonight was my first time using it, actually). I'm actually a little behind with this product, but it is very nice. Its a spray wax, that you don't even let haze. Just spray it on a clean truck, and wipe it off. It adds extra gloss and makes the surface slick again. Its very nice for giving that "just waxed" look (on a car that already has fairly fresh wax to begin with). Its not meant as a QD, though, so the surface needs to be clean, but it works like a QD in its simplicity, and adds gloss and slickness that you don't get with typical QDs.

I use Zaino, so I go 3-4 months between coats. I don't have time to wax every week.

Have you guys used any spray wax, if so what kind and how are the results? :shrug:
Read my reply a couple posts up.

If you want a spray wax to use as the final step (that is, you're not going to use a traditional liquid or paste carnuba or sealant) then you should look into Opitmum Car Wax or Werkstatt Acrylic Jett Trigger. I have no experience with either of these products, but from what I understand they are good enough to be used as your LSP (last step product).

I've tried that nano wax spray.I think it's by eagle one.Is this spray any good?
I believe thats meant to be a booster wax. Meaning, you're supposed to use a traditional wax and use that every week (or every other week) to extend the life of your wax in between coats.
