    I have the following:

    -walmart mf towels (are these ok for buffing out wax/polish?)
    -Meguiar's Gold Car wash
    -Meguiar's Gold wax
    -Meguiar's Swirl free polish
    -Clay magic clay bar (should i use the lube that came with it?)
    -chemille wash mitt (should i use a sheepskin one?)
    -synthetic chamois
    -Black magic tire wet foam (anything better?)

    This is my plan:

    -Wash and clean tires and rims
    -Rinse down car and wash
    -Dry car
    -Use clay magic (is it even nesscessary?)
    -Hand apply SFP with applicator (I am supposed to go left to right intil the swirls are gone?)
    -Then apply the megs gold wax (is it compatible with the polish?)

    Thanks for all answers!

    o, and anything I dont have that I might need please inform me of thanks.

    WAL-MART MF towels are great for wax and polish. You can use the Clay Magic lube until it's gone, then make up some of your own. ClearKote sells a better tire dressing than the Black Magic - it's too greasy.

    I can't tell you if a clay bar is necessary or not, I haven't seen the car. Also, why aren't you using S100 or the ClearKote Moose Wax instead of the Gold Class (even #26 is better)?

    k... i attempted to polish my car today and the mf from wal mart was linting like crazy.

    I was just doing my hood to see how it would look.
    I started from the front of the hood and applied the polish towards the windshield. My question is, when do I know the polish is ready to be buffed off? Iam doing this by hand btw. thanks!

    Work it in until it's nearly clear and dry, then buff off.
