Default Is this the correct order?

So I am thinking I am going to fully detail my car one of these days... more than just wax. I was thinking of all the stuff I want to do, and I came up with this order, does it seem right?

-Wash with dawn to get the current NXT off
-Meguiars quik clay system
-Wash NXT soap
-Meguiars Scratch-X
-Meguiars Deep Crystal Polish
-Meguiars NXT tech wax

I think that is about it for the paint...

there is no need for a harsh product like dawn.......the clay bar and a good cleaner will completely remove any old wax.

i don't see a need to wash after the clay either.

here was my last order:

megs gold class wash
quick clay
#1 Deep crystal paint cleaner
#7 professional show car glaze
nxt tech wax

if you're a megs fan, do some research on

good luck
