Hi,
I've had some products for a while now and I've used them on my mums cars but now that I have a car of my own it will be getting the same treatment tomorrow.

I'll put down the process I've used (with brilliant results) then fire away with some questions.

Snowfoam the car
jet wash
dodo juice wax safe wash
rinse off with open hose
clay bar the whole car
dodo juice wax safe wash again
rinse off with open hose
dodo juice lime prime pre-wax cleanser
dodo juice skull candy wax

I have Poorboys EX P sealer, however where in the process should I use it... before or after waxing? I've read before waxing but I'm not 100% sure.
Also, my clay bar lubricant is pretty low, what can I use as an alternative?

Thanks, will post pics of the cars I've done so far in a sec.

I would use sealer after wax, but I have never used it so itd just be a guess!

Polish first, then wax last.. Polish to bring out the shine, wax to keep it that way

Snow foam.
Rinse
Two bucket method shampoo
Rinse
Dry
Clay
Polish
Wax OR seal. Its one or the other and personal preference, lighter cars tend to work better with sealants whereas darker ones better with wax.

You can also throw in de tarring and iron x in the mix before claying if you get the bits.
