Question Clay bar, wax or waterless?

If I clay bay my car would be ok to use a waterless car wash and wax right after? Or should I put a coat of wax on before using the waterless wash and wax? I have CroftgateUSA for the waterless stuff. I've never used waterless before so just wondering if I should put at least one coat of regular wax on after the clay bay. Thanks!

Re: Clay bar, wax or waterless?

yeah I know the clay bar trips the paint of everything and leaves it unprotected...but wasn't sure if the waterless wash and wax's would protect it or would it need light coat of wax over it first

Re: Clay bar, wax or waterless?

You can hand wax it before or after. I would suggest before just because nothing beats a good machine or hand wax and you are gonna want some good protection on that exposed paint. I wouldn't trust a wax and wash to protect my paint after a good clay job.

I know croftgate would claim it would be fine and yes if you kept up with it weekly it probably would be. But I would have an easier conscience with a nice coat of wax after I clayed my car. Such as collinites 845, fk1000 are all under 15$ I believe but offer some of the best and hard to beat protection for the money. Then keep up with your finish with re croftgate stuff. Just my 2 cents
