Rejex question

I'm planning to use Rejex, rather than wax, on our LE2. How much Rejex is typically needed for one application? I'd like to know how much to buy. Thanks.

One 16 oz bottle should be plenty, I typically use a little over half. It doesn’t require a heavy application. Proper prep is critical, you must get off all the old wax and any bugs, sap or tar. I suspect that the bad reviews come from folks who did not prep adequately.

John,

We will pick up on November 7 and I plan to use Rejex instead of wax based on the recommendation of an Ollie owner who swears by it.  I hope to apply some on pick up to make it easier to clean the bugs off after the over 2000 mile trip back to Oregon.  If it's decent weather and not cold, does that seem doable?  When the trailer is delivered, I would think it wouldn't have any wax on it.  I may just do the front if my time and weather allow it.  Does this sound like a good plan?

Treat your truck before you leave home. At delivery, it will be problematic in November,  maybe you can talk Oliver into letting you bring and leave the trailer inside for 12 hours after you finish applying it. Also it should not applied in direct sunlight. You should also use a clay bar or paint cleaner to make sure the surface is absolutely spotless. That takes a good bit of time. So just the front makes sense rather than the entire hull and roof..  

Have you considered asking Service if they will do the entire trailer BEFORE delivery if you send them a 16 ounce bottle of Rejex? That would certainly be simpler.

Great idea John.  I will ask about that.  Thanks for your suggestion.

That's on par with everyone it seems.  We had to use a mediator on a family lawsuit with my wife's family and he charged $500/hour.  Mediation took about 10 hours!

John:

My concern is that every Ollie off the line gets "show room prepped" and they are beautiful.  As Rejex requires removal of all wax, the question is what does Olive use to create that beautiful shine?  If it is wax.... TILT.
