Default after glaze....sealant and wax.

After I use the 3M hand glaze what should I use next? What Poorboy Product(s)? I know i need a sealant after the hand glaze and then wax.

You don't NEED a sealant and a wax. You can use one or the other or both. Poorboys EX-P is a great sealant. If you want a good wax that lasts a while (I primairly use it for winter preps) Collinite 845 is great and leaves an amazing shine and lasts for 6 months. You can also pick it up locally if you have a harbor freight close by.

Edit: I see your car is OBP. I've found that EX-P really makes the flake pop while leaving a good shine. 845 mutes the flake a little bit, but seems to add a lot of depth and "wetness" to the paint. Just my experience. My computer at work won't let me access photobucket, but when I get a chance I'll post a pic of an 07' OBP STi that I used 845 on.

Sealant needs to be applied to bare paint. Applying a sealant over a glaze will severely limit the longevity of the product.

I've never gone wrong with autogeek instructions or products. As the chart says, the glaze is OPTIONAL, used to hide minor blemishes/imperfections. Otherwise don't use it.

....or to add a wetter look, darken some finishes, etc.

Some sealants like Opti-Seal are also quite friendly with other products and tend to apply well over them. According to Dr G of Optimum, OS will actually migrate below most products it is applied to.

In either case, I haven't experimented enough myself with various sealants (including OS) to see if longevity was greatly affected in this type of scenario. In most cases however, I would wager it's true. ....especially with products that distinctly state to start with a clean surface.
