Last week I decided I would hand wash my car for a second time since I bought it and I also hand waxed it with some liquid Turtle Wax. It was a partly cloudy day and took around 4-5 hours. I think he came out nice and shiny. Just look at those reflections on top! I haven't waxed a car since I waxed Hal's T-Bird when we lived in CA back in the 80's. It will be interesting to see how long it lasts.
