Waxed before the sealant.

So I used adams polishes to polish my car over the weekend and I just realized I waxed the car with out putting on the machine sealant. I use my car as a dd,, so how do I go about applying the machine sealant since I clayed polished and waxed the car already?

you need to strip the wax and then apply the sealant....you can strip wax with Isopropyl alcohol, Dawn diswashing soap or true paint cleaners like Car Pro Eraser.

or

you can just run with what you have done for now, and get it on the next detaiing cycle

Ok so I can pretty much just clean my car next week with dawn, and maybe clay and then apply the sealant. Thanks!

Which wax did you use?

A quality wax will last a fair amount of time by itself. I'd just wait until you see your water beading start to diminish, then strip wash and lay down the sealant/glaze/wax.
