    Correct sequence and correct products [Expert opinion needed]

    Dear All,
    I have a pearl white 660cc JDM 2006. Since from last year i bought this, no any detailing i have done yet. The paint is now too much dull, dirty, dry (non-smooth) , contaminants, swirls and scratches. I arranged below items and willing to buy more .

    1. Chemical guys Mr Pink Shampoo ( didn't use yet )
    2. Formula 1 wash & wax ( i used this only for washing car )
    3. wash mitt (for washing car) , MicroFibre towel ( for drying after wash )
    4. meguiars liquid wax ( didn't use yet )

    The question is about sequence & products.

    Step#1. Wash ( shall i only use Chemical guys or also Formula 1, if both then which one first ? )
    Step#2. Claying ( which you recommend, meguiars clay kit or nanoskin autoscrub kit? ) consider only these 2 available and i will not use DA but only with hands.

    Step#3. Compound ( shall i go for it or not. If yes then which one, Meguiars ULTIMATECOMPOUND or Meguiars CLEAR COATSAFE RUBBINGCOMPOUND).

    Step#4. Removing Swirl (Meguir's swirlx or Meguiar's ScratchX 2.0 , as per my understandings if i chose scratchx then it's mean i don't need Step#3 , please correct me if i am wrong )

    Step#5 Polishing ( Meguir's ultimate polish or CLEAR COAT SAFE POLISHING COMPOUND ? if i chose clear coat then again it's mean i don't need Step#3 , please correct me.

    Step#6 Waxing ( I already have meguiars liquid wax )

    Step#7 Maintaining (Here i am again confuse, what you guys do at the end ? as per meguir's site it is mentioned to apply quick detailer but i didn't get it that during claying we apply detailer then why at the end again ? )

    Regards,
    Faisal.

    Will you be working by hand or machine?

    I would recommend ultimate compound and ultimate polish to correct the paint.

    No need to buy swirlx. Ultimate Compound and Ultimate Polish is all you need.

    Since you are going to do this by hand here is the typical sequnce

    Wash - Use Mr. Pink. You don't want to use a wash & wax

    Clay - This is completely up to you on which you want to use. Traditional clay or a clay alternative. Both have their pros and cons.

    Compound - Ultimate Compound. You may not need to follow up with a polish. You will have to see how the paint looks after this step

    Polish - Ultimate Polish. This will impart gloss and refine the finish.

    Protection - Ultimate Wax

    Maintenance - Car wash in addition to a spray wax like ultimate quik wax or D156 to boost and extend the performance of ultimate liquid wax
