    No, you do not need to Dawn after DAC/P. You've already taken all the wax off. Whether or not you should clay depends on if the car needs it. There's no hard and fast rule.

    Zaino is the one exception. You need to remove all swirls, scratches, etc using DACP, Swirl Free or similar products, then you do need to Dawn Wash for Zaino to work right. For some reason, it won't bond to other products.

    For all other products though, it is a waste of time to wash your car after polishing and before waxing.
