Spray coating is a sealant a sealant provides a layer of protection over your paint/clearcoat protecting it from potentially harsh elements like heat in the summer or road salt in winter or whatever other crap that can get splashed or sprayed onto your car.

Lots of after photos in this thread with HDR exaggerating the effect. Non-HDR and no filter photos are welcome.

Crappy photo, but went with Seal N Shine instead. Normally I use liquid mousse and then liquid wax. Not the same mirror shine but not as back breaking either. I'll see how long this holds up...probably similar to Opti-seal.

Clay bar is to get rid of imperfections that aren't flat, polish to get rid of swirls and scratches. Note if you start rubbing wax over water spots and imperfections you're damaging the clearcoat and making it harder to get rid of them. The wax isn't going to stick well either because it bonds with the clear coat, but you didn't get rid of the stuff in the way (contaminants or old wax)

You can go ahead and use the wax, but you won't get a brand new car mirror like shine without claybar + machine polish.

Iron X is a fast substitute for using a clay bar. If you have the time to machine polish a whole car, you have the time to clay bar. I would only use Iron X to clean wheels, but Meguire Ultimate Wheel Cleaner is far better for that

Watch some youtube video's on detailing cars to get proper methods down.

I’ve found success with Mother’s Speed Clay 2.0. Way easier than using clay bar but still need clay bar for hard to reach areas.

Could you really see the difference between two waxes if you had a nonprocessed photo?

I would like somebody to wax a single body panel with two different waxes and show that there is a visible difference in a photo.
RFD is not just about saving money, it's about the thrill of the hunt and getting the stuff I want without paying full price like Joe Shmoe did.
This applies to everyday items as well as high end items that I don't really need.

You don’t have to do the clay/polisher stage, 99% of cars out there don’t. Now you won’t have slick paint to the touch but only a few of us do. Washing, and spray waxing by hand will already put you ahead of 95% of others and you’re car will look great. Iron X will melt away some of the contaminants. Try to spray it as a fine mist so it covers the maximum area (not a stream type spray). Focus on the front of your car, hood, front quarter panels, they pick up the worst of everything.
