I just clay barred mine and then waxed it with the cleaner wax that came in the kit and it turned out great

I have used Adams polishes they are by far the best wax I have ever used.

what kinda detailing are u doing?

when i "detail" my truck i wash it first, take off all the road tar and paint(gasoline usually works)

i then buff the truck with 3 steps, rejuvinator(its like a compound 1500grit that turns into polish with heat) any auto paint store willhave something similar
then i use swirl mark remover from 3m, with the 3m foam buffing pad,
i then use ultrafina se from 3m with the ultrafina polishing pad

ill then use an insulator wax over the paint i like to use collonite, just seals it well. my truck looks new.

stick with meguiars, they have been in the business longer than anybody, i also know most of the people at hq, they just sold to 3m too so they have even more access to good things to invent.. trust me they got it down. i agree clay if needed(if the paint feels rough you need to) then polish if you choose, swirl marks suck, then wax with your choice, theres the new nxt also a new gold class carnuba, and i can go on for awhile.. if you have any detailing questions feel free to PM me i've been doing it for years and theres alot the general public doesnt know or understand about true paint care.

clay bar works wether the paint is dirty or not... I clay mine about 2x a year and there is still a small amount of dirt on the clay... It wont hurt
