    ooh now...that megs cleaner wax is nice and easy to use...smells good too
    you might be able to skip the polishing if the clay brings your paint up well enough.
    sure there are more threads in here discussing this

    Srp is a polish and a pre wax cleanser.. it has a lot of fillers rather than abrasives!

    srp offers very little in the way of protection, you need to use a good wax over the top,poorboys nattys paste blue is a good first time easy to use and not overly expensive wax!

    I can second that, Poorboys Nattys paste wax is very easy to use and leaves a great finish. Im sure there are numerous other waxs that are as good or better but as a starting point I dont think you could go wrong with Poorboys IMO.
