    made my own wax

    being a little bored and (some would say) a bit sad
    i decided to make my own car wax, so i sourced all the ingredients and set about making it.

    here are the finished results, not sure how long it will last on the car but as i top up my wax every 4 weeks, it should not be an issue



    i used
    8 oz carnuaba wax
    4 oz candelillia wax
    1 tbsp bees wax
    8 floz turps
    1tbsp pine oil
    1tbsp coconut oil
    waxes were gently melted in a double boiler and then the other ingredients stirred in, left to cool and impurities skimmed off then allowed to set in a pot
