I'm new to this forum, but have been reading for the past few days and trying to learn as much as I can. I am getting ready to do my first true detail, on my red 87 Jeep Cherokee. I'm not so sure it has ever been detailed in its life, but the paint isn't oxidized all that bad, and all the clearcoat is still there (big problem in Vegas). I have ordered some things in anticipation of starting to do my own car, as well as family cars, like ONR, Optimum Polish as well as Compound, OCW, and a PC w/ assorted pads, and clay bar. These will all be here by the end of the week, and I am looking at doing my Jeep this coming Sunday. Also, I have done some waxing at the local car wash I work at, but I do not trust our wax, as it is a no name brand that doesn't seem to be the best (Buddco brand or w/e). My biggest question is, what order should i do everything? Is it Wash, Clay, Polish, and Wax? From what I have read, it also seems like I may want to First use Optimum Compound, and then Optimum Polish. Is this correct? Also, My glass seems to have a sort of sand blasted feel to it on the outside, probably from all the sand in the air, and constantly being outside. Is there any way to polish this off? I assume I'll need glass polish and maybe a special pad or do it by hand?
