You must not have taken off all the wax, it isn't that easy. If you wash down either more paint thinner and scrub with a 000 steel wool pad, you may be able to avoid the stripping. My rule of thumb is when my fingers squeak on the cleaned finish I know the wax is gone. Then sand with 150 grit paper, if the paper starts to load with a white glaze, then you still have wax on the paint.
