Car wax makes vehicles look shiny and like new. Car wax also helps protect paint from harsh weather and conditions. This prevents the paint from being damaged and from fading. It usually takes around 30 minutes to wax a car, which isn't long at all considering the amount of time and money it takes to repaint a car.

Skill level:

Things you need
