  2. Get your car into the shade. If you have a garage, you should wax your car in the garage. Otherwise, just find a shaded area. If you wax your car in the sun the sun can ruin the wax even before you have a chance to finish it. The sun can dry up the wax way to fast and can cause for it to come out really messy.

Use a circular motion with little pressure when applying the wax to your car. Max sure to cover the car it in its entirely with the wax. Be careful not to over do it with the wax. Use just enough to cover the car in a thin coat. Allow the wax to fully dry.
  4. Turn on the buffer to buff your car. Remove the wax applicator from the buffer and apply the buffer cloth to the buffer pad. Plug in and turn on the buffer and begin to buff to remove the wax by using big long strokes. Avoid going in circular motion to remove the wax, this can leave unwanted streaks and marks. Don't apply a lot of pressure or force the buffer. Allow it guide you, as you support it.
  5. Enjoy your wax job. Once you are done removing all the wax, your car should have a detailed shine. If done properly, you car should look like it just came from a car detail shop.
