    when I did mine, I washed with Autoglym Shampoo & conditioner ( when rinsing dont dry it will act as a lube ), then I used the megs clay, then rinsed and dryed, then used autoglym SRP, then used Megs no7 glaze, then I used a coat of Poorboys Nattys wax .
    This aint a 5 minute job, so you may want to consider doing half the car at a time.
    Incidentally , I wasnt impressed with the megs No7, I believe it works better on darker cars - (mine is silver )

    hi
    the crystals in t-cut dont brake down so they will get rid of big scatches but leave loads of little swirls.
    the scratch X is good but will take ages by hand.
    i use a poorboys scratch remover 2.5 but again takes ages by hand.
    you could get a machine polisher (silverline orange)at the very least (£35)and some meguiars pads.

    you can hide light swirls by using Ag super resin polish or some glazes as they are full of fillers.
