Ok, so I'll be getting my car painted soon and I'm going to want to protect it as best I can since my car is a daily driver. Let me say this now, I don't have a power buffer/polisher and I'm don't plan to buy one at this point since I can't afford $200, so I'll be doing it all by hand. Also, if it matters, my car is red. I've been using Armorall on the interior plastics and tires since I bought the car, so I'm not too concerned about interior products right now, I've also been using car wash soap when I wash it (it isn't name brand stuff, but I have a good 1/2 gallon left) and I recently bought a Black Magic drying cloth. I think I've decided on a few products to get already: Meguiar's wax (not sure which one yet), smooth surface claybar kit, and scratch x, Clearkoat's Vanilla Moose, and EagleOne's 20/20 glass cleaner. Is there anything I missed that I would want? (I know my list isn't in order). How long does a claybar last? I wanted to give it a try on my current paint to see how well it'll really work, but if it'll only last for one or two jobs then I don't want to blow $20 on paint that won't be here much longer. Is there a difference between a glaze and a wax? If so, which is better? I think that's all for now.
