Waxing a vehicle has become rare, almost a lost art. But it's critical if you want to get the kind of shine that wins at a car show or just impresses everyone at your local Cars & Coffee event. The basics of waxing a car are easy. Anyone can learn to do it in a matter of minutes. Getting good at waxing is a different matter. Lots of practice will yield progressively better results.
The idea behind waxing is simple: By rubbing a wax compound onto the paint and then wiping it off, a very thin layer of wax remains on the painted surface. This helps repel water and dust, road grime, bird droppings, tree sap, and everything else that makes your vehicle look dull and dirty.
