Bought buffer, clay bar, compound, polish and wax.

Gonna use the wife's SRX as a guinea pig. Tomorrow I will do the ESV and then Ginger. The SRX and ESV have never had anything done besides wash and spray wax so I am going all out on them, Ginger's paint is new so I will not use the compound on it. Should I polish Ginger after I clay it or just clay and wax?

Just finished my bi-yearly detail this weekend. I wash, then clay bar, then wash again, then use the swirl and haze remover, then polish, then wax (remember, it's a SYSTEM) it took me two days to get blue done, take your time, check your work! drink plenty of cold water or beverage of your choice....

You can polish, if you'd like. Polish does not have the same cutting power as Swirl and Haze Remover (if you are using Adam's products). After you polish, you can then lay down a coat of wax.

Yep the buffer is great. Be sure to watch the videos on how to use the buffer.
