    Waxing tomorrow will be fine but yes you will need to make sure the car is clean first

    oh right i see, i would use a quick detailer just to get rid of any grit etc that the rain has left behind, just give it a quick once over, make sure its dry then apply the wax mate

    Depends how dirty it gets over night, I personally would wash it or if you have a foam lance, then put a nice layer of foam on it leave for 5/10 mins rinse then QD....
