If you want to keep your paint looking fresh for years to come, some sort of wax or sealant is a must. Fortunately, gone are the days when waxing a car means spreading a paste in a thin layer, and working to buff it all away. Spray sealants offer an easy and effective way to add protection to your paint, helping to protect it from the elements. We've compiled a list of our favorite spray sealants and waxes below.
