No, no!! Start with that, then use the Haze Glaze with a buffer and a foam pad (yellow) then for a final use the Super Spray Wax........

Option 2 )

Use your favorite polishing compound followed by a Carnuba Wax and whe you want to buff the wax use the egg-crate black waffle pad

Alot of people go nutz with all the stuff they make these days. I personally lightly claybar my car once a year and keep a good hand buffed carnuba on it. I use cheap Meguiars Yellow. Why spend a fortune for polymers when mother nature makes a fine time tested wax that proves itself mild over years of use. I keep getting an itch to buy the expensive white carnuba, but after a good buff I dont see where my shine could benefit enough to switch from 10+ bucks a tin to the ridiculous cost of something like Fuzion. I dont care if it comes in a cute box. I have plenty to stash my stash in...........

I myself love Duragloss wash, 301 I think is the number. It has excellent lubricity, and it smells great! I've had good luck with Menzerna polishes. I agree with Venom though. I've tried a few different waxes, and at least once you polish the car, I really don't see a difference. I do feel the cheap stuff doesn't last long enough, but I wouldn't go spend a lot of money on wax. If you want a good sealant that lasts a long time, go get a bottle of Collinite 845 wax. A couple coats of that stuff, and you are good for 3-6 months depending on the conditions.
