We are talking about a car with 2000 miles one it, I feel like dawn and the type of polish you refer to aren't necessary and will only scratch the otherwise perfect paint.

NU Finish is a "polish" but its not really IMO.. you dont rub it in.. just apply and wipe off and you can feel a coating of protection on there. So is it really stripping the eagle 1 off? I really feel like it is a paint sealant more than a polish.


So,
I will wash my car with a quality regular (not rainX) soap..
Clay bar (Have a kit already)
Apply a paint sealant - Recommendations?
Apply my NU Finish
Use Eagle One wax-as-dry in between

Once my current supply runs out Ill consider a switch.. but I really REALLY like the way NU Finish goes on/off and that coat I can feel.


I like what Kean/erik said, so based on what he said and others here, can someone recommend a nice base paint sealant to apply?
