    Yes you should always seal in your hard work with a good wax or sealant(thats Khalids dept, I know nothing about sealants). I am using Dodo Juice Super Natural at the moment, a panel pot is about £12 off ebay and is pretty good, but doesn't seem to give the same sparkle that AutoGlym's AG Wax does. Megs Number 16 is a good wax bang for buck wise, but then so is the original Simoniz waxes that are around £7 a tub from Halfords. One thing to remember when waxing is that you don't need to apply them 1/2" deep. A very thin coating will provide as good a protection as a thick one, and is much easier to remove.

    Although the paint work is in good condition its still a good idea clay it to remove unseen contamination. I always recommend Bilt Hamber clay because you only need water for a lubricant. Nothing worse than starting to clay using a kit with a special lube to end up running out half way through. At this time of year best to go for the soft version.
