Need help..
I just bought the following:
- NXT Car Wash
- NXT Tech Wax 2.0
- Swirl Remover (from pro. line)
- Clay bar kit
- Polish (step 2 from the 3 step system)
- Scratch X
- And I have my own paint cleaner

I know I should wash the car..
But then I'm not sure if I should clay before I paint clean it..

But my thinking was:
1 Wash
2 Clay - to remove upper contamination from the clear cot
3 Scratch X - to remove scratches (bigger) and bigger swirlmarks from the clear coat
4 Swirl remover - To remove finer swirlmarks
5. use paint cleaner to make the paint shine more again
6. use polish to make the color be more pretty
7. Wax it

Am I all wrong here and should I do it in another way? Or what should I do?

You would do this
1 Wash
2 Clay
3 Scratch X / Swirl Remover (depending on what are you trying to remove)
