I detail my RC350 by first making sure my car is completly clean and dry, i use meguiers quick detailer and it really makes the ultra white stick out. I also put a tire shine on my wheels. What about you guys ?

I use Adam's and it gives it a smooth high gloss shine. I start out using Adam's paint Correcting, and then use Adam's Paint Finishing. I apply it using a DA, Orange pad for the Paint Correcting, and white pad for the Paint Finishing.

I do a 3x3 ft. section and clean off using a microfiber towel. When the entire car is done with both products I finish by applying Adam's Buttery Wax.

After it is all done sit back, and enjoy your work.

what is the paint correction for?

On my other cars i used Turtle Black Wax. But it was a 2-3 hr job minimum....

The paint correct is to take out any imperfections like light scratches or swirl marks from a cloth, etc..

Doing all three steps is a 4 hour job, and of course you have to start with a clean car.

I am going to use Wolfgang paint sealant version 3. The paint is perfect already so I don't need to correct at this point. Also I want to be done in under an hour.

So I was told not to wax the car for the first year. This could damage the paint... But I also was advised from my a car detailer that the best thing to do is Clay Bar the car and then wax it to remove all the particles that stay on the paint while sitting on the Dealer Lot....

What should i do?

I use mostly Chemical Guys products. First, Honeydew snow soap in a foam cannon, then the White Light Hybrid Radiant Finish paste (which is amazing), XXX Hardcore carnuba wax after that to seal in the shine, Diablo Wheel & Tire Gel to clean, then Tire & Trim Gel to shine up the tires. I can keep going but you get the idea haha. I'm a detail freak.

If you are going to clay bar it make sure you do it right otherwise it will muck up the finish for sure. Watch some videos from Autogeek.net Auto detailing clay, detail clay bar, clay lubricant, Pinnacle Poly Clay, Wolfgang, auto detail clay, meguiar's detailing clay, auto clay bar

That will help you determine if you need to Clay bar or not. My car was in the showroom, but when I got it I could see water stains and such. I detailed the car before the XPEL clear bra was put on. It looks marvelous now. ;)
