I used the Wolfgang twins last week, then finished it up with the wolfgang sealer, and accidentally splattered some wax on the convertible top. (It was my first time using a DA buffer). I'm afraid to use a cleaner on the top, as I don't want to damage it, or remove the water-proofing on it, but need to get it off ASAP. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to use?

I'd try 303 Convertible cleaner. Their cleaner and protectant are some of the best for convertible tops.

Get the 303 or raggtopp kit that includes both the cleaner and the protectant. The protectant will restore the water beading finish on the top. Personally I have used raggtopp, but also hear good things about 303 from this forum.

I don't have a Boxster now but when I did I used Citra Solv and a toothbrush to remove wax. I still use that combo when I get wax on black trim. As with any solvent, use caution.

Thought I would post an update:

Simple Green, Roll Off and 303 did not work. I talked to Autogeek, and also Wolfgang, and they both think it is there until it wears off. I'm not very happy with myself, and will cover the top next time I wax the car.

I always put the top down and cover it with drying towels before I polish and wax the car. I'm surprised Simple Green didn't clean it off, I use IPA 20% and water to prep the car for polish, washing windows and have removed polish from the top.

Rubbing alcohol is used to remove wax when touching up the paint. Try it on an inconspicuous place with a toothbrush.
