    Polish goes on first. Polish will remove any imperfections in the paint (polish can have various grades of abrasivness) Wax goes on last. It is put on mainly to protect the paint ( and to add a shine to the paint).
    If you put wax on first then polished the car. The polish would remove all the wax.
    So as I say polish then wax.

    If Mr Ed says polish first, then that's what you do.
    He should know with the amount he uses ........ .........
