Hey picus, great write up. I'm sure your op will be viewed as the gold standard for new car prep. I have one question, I just finished a complete detail of my car over the weekend, which included 2 coats of "Best of Show" wax on the sides and front/rear bumpers, and 3 coats on the hood, roof, and trunk applied with a random orbital. Now the question (finally) is would I still clay bar the car periodically between waxes? I plan on using speed shine for routine (light) cleaning, but what effect, if any, would the clay bar have on the wax?
