So I am needing to wax/polish/detail my [COLOR=#009900 !important]car[/COLOR]. I have a 00 limited metallic blue that I just bought. The finish is in not bad shape, but I would like [COLOR=#009900 !important]the car[/COLOR] to last a while so I need to protect it.
I have always used Meguires in the past. I was thinking that route but I would have to use some compound or polish then the synthetic wax. Sine I am doing this for the first time I am thinking it is going to be a long process.
1) wash (meguiars[COLOR=#009900 !important]gold[/COLOR] class)
2) clay (Mothers or Meguairs)
4) polish (Meguairs Ultimate polish)
5) sealant ( Meguairs liquid wax)
6) optional wax (meguairsgold class carnauba)
Now I like the 5 step system, but I am not sure where I can use a synthetic in there since carnauba wax only lasts for about 6 -8 weeks as I have been told, and going into winter now I want the best protections I can get.
Am I missing a step?
What are the products I should be using when it comes to the protection steps? I am using gold class for the wash and figuring the regular clay kit in the store.
Also for step 7 detail/maintain, I LOVE final inspection.
So suggestions and tips on things to get are needed. Product recommendations are a must in layman's terms please!! There are so many different products available, no idea what I should/should not be looking at.
I am reading the daily driver thread and learning from that!!
