    Pointers please

    Spent the day cleaning the car (phantom black a3). In short the paintwork was washed, clayed using meguiars clay kit, megs deep crystal polish, then megs tech wax to finish. I have some megs ultimate quik detailer for between waxes but when should I repeat the polish/wax process?
    Is it a once every 3 months or as and when I get the time?

    Sorry, struggling to post pics

    Quick detail after every wash, wax every 2-3 months (or more often if you like or have time), and aim to clay/polish/rewax every 6 months or so.

    Fantastic, thanks for the advice. I take it there's no need to reapply the polish until it's been clayed again?
    Once I run out of megs I will be getting some blackfire to compare the difference.

    Correct, only polish after claying, otherwise you'll be stripping previous layers of protection.
