Not done this for a while remind of the correct order involving washing, claying, paint cleaner, polish, and sealant

Thinking

- Wash
- Dry
- Clay
- Paint cleaner
- Polish
- Sealant

Sod all that. No need on a brand new white car, unless you want to post close up pic of no swirl marks under a man made light.

I did mine earlier. I used the pre detailing world methods and got good results. Will post pictures in a bit once I've driven to a good location for pics.

I'd say it's the most need. It will be brand new soft paint with no protection at all.

I can't picture vauxhall factories spending much time with wax and paint sealant

I did a wash, clay mitt, 2 layers of srp, glass/tyres. Then wipe over with some last detailer and then waxed it.

52 layers of wax to stop the paint fading to fuckery. Standard vauxhall ownership practice.

Wash and dry mine once a week, give it s machine Polish and wax maybe twice a year. Don't understand people who Polish every time they wash.

Unless it's a finishing polish, wouldn't it cut down the paint over time seeing as it's an abrasive compound if people polished it every time they washed their car?

Power rinse.
Snow foam.
Use snow foam as shampoo and wash with car wash style foam brush.
Spray on remaining snow foam and let it soak for 5.
Power rinse.
Demon shine spray on wax stuff.
Buff dry with large microfibre cloth.

Throw a bucket of water on the front and rear screen. The rain can wash the rest off
