Cleaning & Waxing the 3D MasterCraft Logo (2015 X2)

I've read up on a ton of threads about cleaning and waxing the boat - I've gone out and bought the Collinite cleaner and wax (920 and 925/845). I have a 2015 X2 which has the raised (3D) type MasterCraft logo along with the X2 badge on the sides. I'm not sure what these are made out of and if I should use either the 920 cleaner for 925 wax on them.

If I had to guess, I would stay away from the 920 cleaner as it has a mild-cut to it and I don't want to damage the letters, but I would assume putting the wax on is fine (unless it screws up the finish). Either way, looking for advice/opinions. Has anyone else waxed their letters?

*Note - the 925 and 845 wax are the same product in a different bottle, I confirmed this with many sources including this forum and my local paint store who sells Collinite products.

I don't think it would hurt at all to put the wax on the letters. I am very experienced in using Collinite products and have been using them for years on pretty much everything I own. Remember, thin is in!! Do not apply heavily.

I would not hit the letters with the cleaner. If they are dirty, use an all purpose cleaner (APC) to clean them.

Good luck, have fun, enjoy a few beverages!

Love the color of that X2!

Be careful of towels and rags catching the corners of the letters as you do the rest of the hull. They start to come loose and then catch even more.

Thanks for the advice, I'll keep that in mind and slow down when I work around those areas.
