    Wrong I'm afraid!

    ALWAYS sealant first, then wax last. Due to the way they bond, and the molecular structure of each, a sealant should always be applied to the paint surface. A wax can be layered above that but never t'other way round.

    (I could go into the full explanation but won't - yet.....)

    You'll just massively compromise the durability of your sealant (ie, if it's got 4months durability, you've probably taken that down to about 3 weeks) and you'll probably have a slightly streaky finish - usually evident under point source lighting (halogens etc).
