We’re not sure how many Professional Detailers and Southern Californian’s are aware of Pete’s Wax Works in Norco, California, but anyone who is anyone in detailing surely knew owner Pete Martinez. For those of you that were fortunate enough to meet or talk to him on the phone can agree with us that, words cannot explain what an incredible person Pete was. Pete brought to the Inland Empire a Chemical Guys shop that was open daily to car enthusiast, detailers, friends and anyone else who wanted to experience detailing at its finest. Pete brought his 20 years of premium paint blending, design, and finishing combined with his love for cars and motorcycles into a venue where he could share and teach auto lovers about the art of detailing. Pete’s Wax Works has educated, bread and helped out hundreds of detailers, enthusiastic, car lovers, bikers, collectors and more importantly friends in understanding paint care, the detailing industry and proper use of the complete line of Chemical Guys Products.
Pete was not only the ultimate source for detailing knowledge but more important a true friend, a man with a heart of gold and an amazing personality that could bring shine to every day and every surface. From cars to bikes, Pete took his love for the auto, his 20+ years of experience in paint blending and his professional expertise in auto detailing to the next level educating people on his 53’ years of professional experiences in the paint industry.

We wish that 53’ could have been formulated while Pete was alive so that he himself could enjoy its beautiful wet liquid shimmer, on one of the many Wax Works Motorcycle Rides Pete and his wife went on weekly after leaving Wax works.
