Time to update your goods, my man!!

The polishes were re-vamped last spring, and are now 2 steps that work faster than before. Paint Correcting Polish and Paint Finishing Polish.

Machine Super Wax changed it's name a few years back, to Machine Super Sealant. That is being discontinued, but it still available here:

http://www.adamspolishes.com/p-139-a...r-sealant.aspx

It has been replaced by our new Liquid Paint Sealant. Used in the same situations, but can now be applied by machine or hand, looks better, and best of all, there's no 12+ hour cure time!

Sure, you could consider it that. Or technically 4 steps if you glaze. Or 5 if you add wax. Or 6 if you count clay bar. Or 7 if you count washing.

Hmmmmm.....ok lol!!

Here is, or was, my usual regimen:
1) wash
2) clay
3) swirl and haze
4) fine mach polish
5) machine super wax

Now, with the changes:
1) wash
2) clay
3) paint correcting polish
4) paint finishing polish
5) machine super sealant

Is the sealant the wax, cause I noticed that you mentioned wax as a step above. I thought the super sealant replaced the machine super wax?

Sorry for being a pain in the ass.....I just want to get this right considering all the changes.

Your steps are perfect!

A sealant is a sealant and a wax is a wax, they are two different products used for different purposes.

A wax can be added on top of a sealant for a little more gloss and an additional layer of protection.

Check out this thread that outlines the differences between the two:
