Also get a nice waffle weave towel for drying, very absorbent and safe.
Clay bar (I use mother's)
Paint polish - i'm using einszett polish wax
Wax - P21s, its a great canuba wax.
Ya i just really slack on the drying part. My normal procedures are wash with meguires car wash rinsing whole car in between sections. Dry with crappy beach towel. Then use meguires cleaner wax by hand. Then use buffer and lay down the nxt tech wax and then finishing with meguires quik detailer. Car looks great when im done. I just know there is room for improvements so I will try clay bar next time i really just need good drying technique and a polish that will last more than two washes.
