Perfect car shine
The job of the wax is to protect the appearance of the car. After the thorough cleaning of the car and its full drying, the experts use polish for getting desired shine. Medium-grit polish is for the scratches one can feel with the hand. When deeper scuffs and scratches are present, use of rubbing compound is popular. One can also use grit fine polish.
This is another part of waxing and car polishing process and before one can apply the actual wax on the body, the experts take some time to wipe down trim unpainted bits with quality protectors. This step facilitates easier wax removal when it gets upon chrome trim. The process involve direct spraying of the protector on the sponge, followed by wiping on, and use of clean cloth to wipe this off later. According to the professionals for the application of wax, less tends to be more. They apply thin wax layer over small car section as getting off thick layers is difficult. The thin layer is enough to seal out dirt or water.
Working upon sections
Application of the wax is a time-consuming process as in order to get the best results one has to work on individual sections until they achieve the full coverage. Removing the wax as it dries becomes quite hard so when you work on small sections at a time rubbing out the thin layer is easier before the drying process begins.
Waxing in the shade

Wax application and removal tend to be time sensitive and often you need to remove them immediately after the application. In direct sunlight it will dry quickly and fail to give the desired result, so experts do it in shade.
