Dont rinse before foam foam works better on dry surface.

Wax should be your last product unless you wanna top it with a qd after wax.
If you wax it you can avoid sealant or you can use sealant without waxing it.

Remember more products dont always give more shine ;)

if your paint isn't looking bad don't use too much of these products.

and be careful by polishing the car... don't destroy your paint with mirco dirt on your
towell or pad...

i always buy new ones to exclude such a failure..

Glaze after polish is ok and will give you the extra gloss.
What are your polishing products?

you can go many ways..

my way is the following:

1. Washing the car with shampoo and wash pad
2. Rinse
3. Dry with a Jelly Wiper Blade and cotton towell
4. Meguiars Ultimate Compound or SwirlX for deeper Scrachtes (For heavy scratches you can use ScratchX)
5. Meguiars NXT Tech Wax (1 or 2 Layers)
6. Meguiars Ultimate Quick Detailer

That should be hold for few months...

Never touch any car with wiper blades. Use a soft dry towel

It is recommended to use Snow Foam AFTER a rinse Kotsos
I used to do this..contacted Baker 21 (DW) and he confirnmed that SF works better from a wet surface

no need to dry the car before claying as water or your clay lube only helps the clay to slide easier therefore not risking marring

Foam must stay on car surface from 5 to 7 minutes bedore rinse. If surface is wet foam doesnt sit on surface.

I agree Kotsos, spray onto a dry car, stays on for ages then working its magic especially if its magifoam like i use

I ll try it next time and i ll let you know.
I m afraid pressure water will remove the dirt without soften it first and that possibly cause a damage,

+2, I find it clings better on a dry surface. I used to wet the car 1st but the foam ran off quicker. Now I only put it on a dry car & this gives me time to do the badges, nooks & crannies with my detailing brush.
