    yep your right with the process. you can also glaze before waxing.

    IMO as a burg has no clearcoat the best to go for would be a sealant as they are more durable. like chemical guys jetseal 109 or zaino.

    polish wise it depends if you are doing it by hand or machine?

    IIWY, do the wash, clay, wash, dry, then machine polish using something like Fast Cut + on an SFZ-1 pad. Then use a paint clener such as Zymol HD Cleanse or Dodo Juice Lime Prime Light. Then for LSP, I'd go for Zaino Z2Pro, use with the ZFX Flash Cure Accelerator and do about 10 layers (over a few days)

    glazing is adding that little bit extra to the finish before you apply the lsp.

    TBH, I glazed once but got better results from a using a paint cleaner then straight to LSP. The LSP bonds better to the paint when going straight from a paint cleaner.
