mtnnsea19 - The only reason that I want to use the Souveran is to bring out some extra depth and wetness in the paint. I am not too concerned with the alloted time of protection as I will be washing the car every week and performing a full detail as listed every month (if needed). I was not aware that you have to wait 24 hours after the sealant. Now I know. Also, how can you tell if polish is broken down completely? Thanks.

Hines - I wanted to use the Dawn mixture for the car wash as I want to strip any kind of impurities or anything that is on the paint. Kind of starting with a somewhat cleaner canvas if you know what I mean. Is there a drastic difference between sponge washing the car versus using a foam gun? Thanks.
using the claybar will pull away the impurities better then the harsh dish detergent. im big against using dish detergen. my process is wash, clay, rinse, dry, an begin polishing.

Some sealants you do not have to wait 24hrs to layer, werkstatt AJ only suggest a minimum of 30 min. i usually give it a few hours before recoating.

souveran is good for darker color cars, i use the paste souveran. on lighter colors id choose something a bit less expensive then souveran, it still looks good, but others do just the same for the lighter color cars, for cheaper too.
