    sealant over wax ?

    Can / should Meguiar's M21 Mirror Glaze Synthetic Sealant be applied over a newly waxed car ? I've read that sealant bonds to the paint. Wouldn't it suboptimize the sealant ? Thanks in advance ...

    Welcome to MOL.

    You can apply it over a wax. Just know that the sealan't durability/longevity can or will be affected.

    for longevity i would strip the wax from the paint an apply sealant first as it will bond better to a clearcoat then waxed surface.

    I use Meguires Gold class wax and then finish with the new Fast Finish wax. Is this the wrong order??

    I tried UFF on top and on the bottom, and I feel like UFF on the bottom might work better for me...

    Shouldn't he first SEAL, and then WAX ? Sounds like he is doing things in reverse.....

    Sure you can. The M21/M26 combo is always a forum favorite.
