    I detailed my car today it took all day...! Its the first time been done and is 6 years old so you can imagine what it was like. I managed to get one coat of polish on before calling it a day.

    I like to put two coats of wax on but previously managed to do aall in one day.

    My question is tomorrow before wax...

    Wash car before wax?

    Wash car do another polish then two wax?

    Or...? Welcome your thoughts.

    It's supposed to rain tonight as well.

    Tks in advance.

    Others will add their more expert knowledge, but I would suggest a quick wash this morning and then straight into getting a couple of coats of wax onto it.

    Forum rules are to get pictures up or it didn’t happen :busted cop:

    Yes. The panels need to be smooth and free from contamination. It will make life easier when applying the wax and bond better

    Yeah you have to decontaminate the surface before applying any polish or wax. As above said, fall out remover, tar remover, clay bar, then a full safe wash before polish and wax.
