-You can also use a orbital buffer to apply wax to and buff it off of your vehicle.
-If you are using an orbital buffer, you will want to apply the wax to the buffer’s pads, not directly to the car.
-When beginning to add the wax to the car, place the buffer onto the car’s surface so that the buffer does not send the wax flying off the pad and into the air.Waxing your car is not something to rush. Take your time, follow the steps, and when completed you will have the wax job that others envy.
