    After washing.

    The process should go.
    1.Polisher
    2. Sealer and/or Wax

    Or the other way around. I would think the other way around but reading through this stuff I haven't found confirmation.

    (I imagine the bottle would tell me also. lol )

    Owned by reading comprehension. :teehee:

    Polish first to clean the surface of the paint. Then apply wax or sealant to protect the finish. Profit.

    Personally I use turtle wax as the paint job on my car is un-revivable. (ford clear coat problem ughh) But.. tomorrow I will be waxing a couple of my friends BMW's. I'm doing for a couple extra bucks and since they will never do it themselves and it needs done (hell even I wax my car) I'm getting some exercise and making a buck in the process. (plus I get to drive the bmw's :tehe: )

    All I have to get wax and polish at is orielly's and autozone. I've gone through scottwax's thread and cross-referenced auto/orielly's stock and choosen the Carnuba wax paste and a mequairs polisher. I'll grab a microfiber towel while I'm at it.

    One thing that wasn't covered in the thread were powder coated wheels. I've always had chrome wheels. What do you do with powder coated wheels? I'm pretty sure the chrome wheel stuff I have (forgot name) isn't for powder coated stuff. Any thoughts?

    Thanks for any help.

    First, it's "Meguiar's" -- not "mequairs" -- it might help you to know that :mamoru:

    Second, for the wheels pick up some Meguiar's Hot Rims All Wheel Cleaner -- should be safe for the powdercoat. :bigthumb:

    Wash
    Clay
    Polish
    Wax or sealant

    In that order.

    Personally, I wipe my car down with goat semen. I yell at the car for 5 minutes, then buff off the semen with wool pads and spit.
