Help with finishing wax / sealant needed.....

Please


I have a Clio with great condition paintwork that was lightly single stage machined the back 1/3rd of last year; and went into the garage for winter not that long after. I'm about to dig it back out for the summer season and thought i might start with a weekend of working on the paintwork at Easter.

I am a tinkerer and i love being outside; so i'd planned on the normal wash, possible decontaminate, claybar and then hand polishing with Autoglym SRP via a Lake Country Hydro-Tech hand pad; or a Scholl concepts polishing puck.

And here my 'problems' start. I'm more interested in long term protection / ease of continued maintenance washes than purely outright day-to-day shine and have a few products here to use to finish.

I'd intended on getting a couple of layers on and am unsure what would be best as a harder / more durable (?) base-layer.....and then what to use ontop.


I have:

Gtechniq C2 v3 Liquid Crystal spray.
DodoJuice Supernatural Hybrid wax.
Bilthammer Double Speed Wax.


Colour of the car is below if it helps at all. What would you do ????




Cheers.

Either wax maintained with c2 will be fine, it's simply down to which wax do you prefer, c2 will become the lsp so what is under it becomes redundant.

Are you limited to only those 3 products?
If your paint is that good from a polish then why not ceramic coat it?

That could then make washing easier and give longer protection
