    Re: Washing new car - to wait? 'body shop safe'

    Thanks for that - i think i will polish as well now as it sounds like it is a great idea. I assume Ultimate Polish would be the best choice?

    I think i see what you are see here in that HCW could supersede NXT Gen Sealant and then Quick Wax could be my maintenance to boost the HCW after every other wash. The reason why i went with NXT Sealant and HCW as a maintainer is because i thought they would compliment each other nicely and that the NXT sealant would last longer than HCW - making HCW a good maintainer? I was also reading that HCW bonds better if the car already has some sort of sealant on it? Do you think HCW lasts as long as NXT?

    Thanks!

    Good suggestion! i was thinking that actually but maybe that can be a later addition. I will already be buying many products initially haha. Maybe the wash and wax can be for my maintenance wash and the nxt gen for when i do a full process?

    Wow - most advanced and durable product on offer! I was reading on another thread here that one of the Meguiar guys said it works best as a finisher in addition to your favorite wax or sealant.. it was in the massive HCW introduction thread - can’t locate the link atm as I’m currently on my phone. Kind of confuses things considering the advice given in your links.

    Sometimes we over think things and it takes away from the fun. My advice is to don't overthink it.

    Another piece of advice is to experiment with different products. You will find something that you like and that you will use often.

    I agree, I have definitely been over thinking this process. Either way, this process will be 99% more than I
