    I would ditch the sponge in favour of a lambs wool mit. Not expensive but worth it.

    Use a two bucket method too, one bucket with soapy water and one to rinse mit before putting back into soapy water.

    After claying use the polish then wax last. The polish should create a shine then the wax will enhance it and protect it all, making life easier during the next wash.

    Not sure about the chrome strips though, I use autosol on my exhaust but it may be a bit harsh for the trim?
