How to Wax Your Vehicle

We can guarantee that a Chevrolet vehicle from Jansen Chevrolet will run well for years to come, but if you want your vehicle to look as good as it runs, you need to practice some routine maintenance on your car’s exterior. You should wax your vehicle every three months to protect it from debris and give it a glossy coat. Once a year, buff or “wheel” your vehicle, too. This helps to fill in blemishes on your car’s surface and gets it ready for the wax coat.


Purchase an inexpensive orbital buffer online as well as some buffer pads. Wash your car before you start; cover anything in the surrounded area, lest these items be splashed with buffer compound in your wheeling process.

Cover one panel of your vehicle with buffer compound, then spread polish by using the orbital buffer on a medium speed. Move with even pressure over one panel at a time until scratches and blemishes disappear. Then, move on to the next panel.


Wash your car again between wheeling and waxing. Then, apply a 60:40 mix of wax and polish onto a clean buffer pad. Again, use a steady and even pressure to apply the mixture with the buffer over one panel at a time. Once the wax is dry, use a microfiber towel to remove the wax, leaving your vehicle with a protective, shiny coat.
