Adam's Glaze/Wax Question

My black Camaro is due for delivery late next week and I am trying to get my list of Adams products together for an order.

I already own a PC but my question is if the Machine Superwax is the last step I should use for the best depth and shine. Should I follow up with a hand glaze and wax or will the machine superwax give me the best shine?

Thanks in advance!

well even with a new car....what you REALLY should do when you get it home is this:

1. Hand wash the car using the two bucket method.
2. CLAY BAR the entire car.
3. Wash the car again.
4. look at the finish VERY CLOSE either in the sun or using a bright light, look for swirles and micro scratches.....if needed, using your PC, start with SHR.
5. Next, move up to Fine Machine Polish.
6. Next Machine Super Wax.
7. Next Brilliant Glaze.
8. for the "Pièce de Résistance" Americana Paste Wax

Thanks Sir Nuke

Now, please excuse me while I do my best to convince my wife that I need 400 dollars worth of cleaning supplies for the car that I just brought home

mmm First I clayed my car, then used the FINE MACHINE POLISH with my PC, followed up with a coat of GLAZE then AMERICANA then another coat of GLAZE. 2nd coat of Glaze because on the bottle it said to top off on any wax. WOW!! Used only those products because hubby had a fit, son got me a $50 Gift Cert. for Mothers' Day and I doubled that with my first order. But well worth it...The GREEN MACHINE shines like crazy. Will have to do the hubbie's Black Avalanche to get him to realize there is a difference.
