clay baring question

so im getting my new car in a few weeks and i want to clay bar the whole thing.

the only problem is, i dont have a polishing machine so want to avoid the compounding stage

can i go from clay baring to hand polish and wax/seal? or even use a glaze after clay baring?

Yes exactly the same process. After claying using a decent polish like Ultimate Compound. This by hand will remove all the marring marks with ease. After that you can think about a glaze and then wax if you like

Assuming a paint-safe wash has already taken place, use something like Bilt Hamber soft (http://amzn.to/2qZ6Hbz) so the clay remains pliable and use lots of water to keep the surface lubricated. Regular kneading between panels will also reduce any risk of marring the surface.

Once you are done, use something like poorboys black hole (http://amzn.to/2q34ozh) to fill in any minor swirls and top up with your LSP of choice.

I would go with Bilt Hamber I've never had marring from it.
