    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?

    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. :icon_thumright:

    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. :icon_thumright:
