    Detailing noob - What is the best order to polish, clay and wax?

    Morning everyone!

    I'm planning on giving my 8L S3 a little fettle today, and I was wondering what the best order to do things is...

    Is it best to - Wash, dry, polish, clay with detailing spray, then wax...

    Or - Wash, dry, clay with detailing spray, then polish and wax after?

    I use all Meguiars stuff, always have so it's the ultimate polish, ultimate quik detailer, tech wax 2 an even the clay bar and car shampoo lol

    Any help would be appreciated

    This one but after you have clayed it wash it again, don't forget 2 bucket method when washing to reduce spider Web scratches. Post pictures when you're finished.

    2 buckets, one with you car wash in it the other with nothing but clean water. Wash the car thoroughly with a jet wash the more grit, dust ect you can get off the better for obvious reasons.

    Using a lambs wool mitt wash one panel at a time, rince the mitt in the clean water so any dirt goes in there and not in your bucket with the car wash.
