    Clay before you polish, and seal after you polish.

    My opinion on products taking the Halfords 3 for 2 offer into account:

    Shampoo: Megs Gold Class
    Clay: Megs Clay (with Quick Detailer)
    Polish: Autoglym Super Resin Polish
    Sealant: Autoglym Extra Gloss Protection or Megs NXT Wax
    Wax: Megs Gold Class

    I personally will clean the wheels/tyres before starting on the body work, because of the dirt splashes.
    Astra Coupe Turbo Project Log KW var2, BK299, Apexi, HID, Angel, Leather Cobra, Phoenix Gold, GT/R2, Fluted, DV26D, Pre/Sports/Catback, CarPC, B&M, VXR Turbo, Tarox-10, Phase 3! Car is for sale!

    I found the NXT wax was only good in the spray.
    Gaz

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    If you want "old style" (solid) carnauba wax try Poorboys Natty's Wax. Apply it with a polyfoam pad in circles over the paintwork.

    You can also give more protection using Duragloss AquaWax (spray) after waxing.

    I use Grojet2000 as paint sealant. You should seal the paintwork only AFTER polishing and BEFORE waxing.

    I use Sonax Shampoo (as Quick Detail for use with claybar) and Carlack Re-Greasing Shampoo and a genuine wool wash mitt for washing.

    Just click on my sig to see the results of this combo.
