Re: best wax/polish ?

hi the step by step guide is differant due to people and wot type of product.
With the meguiars clay bar kit you use the clay before you polish.

Ill tell you my step by step guide

step1- rinse down the car to take off any loose dirt or grit stop from scratching the paint when washing

step2- spary tfr (traffic film remover) all over the car this takes off all flys,tar and mold

step3- wash car with car shampoo (which ever you perfer)

step4- rinse off shampoo

step5- dry down the car

step6- spary meguiars quick detailer onto a panal of the car then rub the meguiars clay bar over the panal youv just sprayed (rub til piant is smooth to touch)

step7- wipe it dry with a micro fiber cloth

step8- apply the meguiars polish which is supplyed with the kit then take off with a micro fiber cloth this is to add the shine

step9- now this is up to you but after iv done all that i use meguiars clear wax this gives it a mirrow finish
