    Bought a few new products;
    Dodo claybars
    Lime prime
    Dodo shampoo
    Poorboys spray and gloss quick detailer?
    Poorboys paste wax
    Autoglym super resin
    Iron x
    Poorboys wheel sealant

    Could I use all these products in one go without issue? Any advice on order of products?

    I was thinking, wash, rinse, dry, iron x rinse and dry, clay from the front doors back( front end has new spray job), lime prime, super resin, poorboys blue nattys wax, and finish with the QD?

    My car is a lava grey A3 sportback, I have some PB black hole but I've leant it a friend for his A4

    Just read that people leave the waxs on for 10-15? Now I've always applied it on the whole car and by time I've finished I've whipped out my micro fibre and taking it off? Should I leave the polishes, lime prime and wax on for some time?

    The drying time is much quicker obviously so shade is good if you get any.

    Some waxes are fine in direct sunlight I think it tends to be the synthetic stuff and the natural carnauba needs the wax on and wax off approach, but check each one first!

    Polish and cutting compounds need cold surfaces or it just accelerates them don't know the exact chemical reaction bar I used t cut in the sun once and nearly lost bothy arms trying to get it off

    If your gonna do the full lot I find washing the car in fairy first and rinsing well then full shammy dry to get rid of any of the older wax works a treat and if you've never used a clay bar before your In For a treat specially the bottom of doors !
