First time detailing ever_advice

Hi

I'm planning on giving my car a mini detail. There is soo much information that I am getting overloaded.

My car has alot of swirls and light scratches. Is sapphire black.

I was planning on cleaning it, clay bar, wax or polish and then sealing it. I heard about Poor Boys black hole but I don't know at what stage to use this.

Am I on the right direction?

I know nothing about compound and machine polishing and not sure I could do this.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

** I will write an in depth response when I have some free time **

Please consider reading through some of the "What Can I do for you?" Thread where I have answered a lot of questions related to paint correction, and also some of the threads I have posted showing the paint correction process (a couple specifically on BSM paint).

EDIT: I just bumped several threads that will really help you out.

You're a legend. Thanks very much.

From what I have read i am planning to

Wash
Clay
Polish
Wax/seal (poorboys black hole & Nattys wax)

I was thinking to use some poorboys ssr to remove the swirls but I don't know if this is overkill and also I do not have a polish machine so all will be done by hand.
