Is what I bought ok?
I've been going through these threads trying to find the best stuff to get in washing your car, waxing and shining. I looooove my car and I am also a tad lazy. I don't see myself outside for 6 hours washing/waxing my car. 1-2 hrs is what I end up doing usually on washing and drying (when I do it). I've had my car a week now. Last night it was dusty/dirty so I thought, hey I'll spray the dirt off with the hose and wash it tomorrow... That was my Carlos Mencia "Dee Dee Dee" moment...
Houston has some really nasty hard water... so I drove to Autozone (couldn't see myself parking my Camaro in the Walmart Parking Lot without someone waiting on my car).
Here's what I bought:
-Turtle Wax Bug & Tar Remover Spray
-AutoZone Microfiber Auto Cloths
-AutoZone Microfiber Applicator Pads
-Turtle Wax Ice Car Wash
-Turtle Wax ICE Synthetic Liquid Polish
-Turtle Wax Ice Synthetic Spray Detailer
I was going to use all that stuff in the order they are listed. Is this good stuff? Am I doing it right? I plan on washing it late this evening as the sun goes down and it's not as hot out.
I do want to eventually use Zaino. I've never really waxed before... Bought stuff in the past and only used it once (i posted before that I never used it, but I looked at the pad on the buffer and saw it was dirty... musta used it, or maybe Sancho did while i was TDY hahahahah).
I guess I should add, I park my baby in the Garage.
Thanks for your guys' help/replies/input/....and flames

Those products will work just fine.
I personally have not used the Turtlewax bug & tar remover but I am sure it is good stuff. You will find that the spray detailer will also remove bugs and light tar. Keep the spray detailer and a couple of micro fiber cloths in the trunk if you want to get the bugs off during a road trip.
