Need a quick reply! First polish, the glaze?

Do I first polish then glaze, or glaze then polish? I think it's polish first, but it's been a while since i've done this..

Wash and then clay first. Polish second to remove swirls. Apply sealant (glaze) or wax to finish.

glaze is not a sealant

you wash, then clay, then polish, then glaze (not necessary, but makes it look better), then sealant, then LSP wax

Thanks for clarifying. I actually knew that but thought that when the OP said a glaze he actually meant a sealant.

LSP= "LAST STEP PRODUCT" not really necessary but it definitely adds depth to the paint after sealant.
