Final buff before wax

Hi guys
So im looking wondering what people are recommending between 4 stage polish and wax??
Ie: im wanting to glaze seal wax or perhaps just glaze with a visible haze then seal, using my DA for final buff and finish working with microfibre Finishing Pad.

Sorry but I don’t really understand what you are asking?
Are you looking for a product that will prepare the paint before you apply a sealant or wax?

Why the heck do you want to glaze after you've done a 4 stage polish? It makes absolutely no sense!
Your paint should be to a level where a glaze would make no difference to looks and would only compromise the bonding of any LSP that you were to apply. If, after 4 stages, you still need a glaze as there are fine marks, you need to add in stage 5 and polish a bit more.

If your paint still has defects that a glaze can cover after a 4 stage polish, your doing it wrong lol

If you are going to polish your paint with a DA/Rotary then no need to glaze, just seal or wax after a wipedown with IPA.

If you are not polishing your paintwork and want to cover the defects, after a decon, glaze then wax. Do not seal over a glaze unless the glaze is designed to go under a sealant otherwise the sealant will wear off very quickly.

I think the mistake was the terminology used, if you say "polish" then we all think you are using a machine to polish your paint.

For the final buff if you mean to remove products e.g. wax with then just use a nice plush soft microfibre cloth instead, no need to use a machine for this. But if you meant final buff with a machine as in final stage polish then thats fine, just use an IPA afterwards then wax or seal or seal then wax if you want both.

I hope this helps, but without knowing exactly what you are trying to do its hard to advise.

Also when you refer to a 4 stage polish, we think you mean you are doing 4 stages of polishing your paintwork e.g. with a machine polisher. Terminology is key here i think

I'd just correct the paint then apply a sealant. You can add wax on top, but it won't last very long. Be careful, the carrier solvents in the wax may effect the longevity of the sealant.

Plenty said already other than adding a glaze can be worth while but risks longevity of the wax.
