How often and how long?

Couple of questions for the waxers.

How often do you wax your rig?
How long does it take, on average, to do the job?

I paid a guy $150 to wash and wax my rig for me back in late January and he did a great job, but I am thinking about doing it my self next time and putting the $150 in my pocket. I also know that one of the fringe benefits of waxing it yourself is you get to know your rig better - going over all those nooks and crannies.

I did it in stages over 2 days while parked in front of the house. The stuff I mentioned goes on and off easy and really removes any dirt also.
I plan on doing mine twice a year as I'm in the hot desert.
I need wax with UV protection to protect the fiberglass and the decals.
$150 is reasonable for wash and wax. It would cost me at least $10 a foot.

The biggest problem with washing and waxing is the bug removal. Any advice on what works really well?

HAve heard bounce dryer sheets work well when you rub spots with it. I usually use the NuFinish polish to remove them

After waxing my front cap with the marine wax the bugs just glide off.
Actually after I did way the bugs are much easier to remove with a wet rag. Can't say about other waxes.

As our rig was driven out from Indiana without having been waxed we got our new rig with lots of bugs on the front. I used the Liquid Clay Bar to remove the impacted bugs which had also left some impressions in the new paint above the windshield. At least on the front below the windshield they had instaled Invisibra which protected it from the bugs and rock chips.
