I just recently ordered a new 2014 plasma blue pearl WRX and just have a couple questions. I've already told the dealership to just take the plastic off and I'll clean it myself so I don't have to worry about them messing it up that bad, but it probably will be dirty. My questions are:
1.) How in-depth should I get with this first cleaning? (refering mostly to exterior obvi.). Would a wash/clay/wax do or should I wash/clay/polish/sealant/wax instead. I imagine it isn't going to be that bad scratch/swirl wise since it's new, just wondering what people would do as soon as they took it home from the dealership.
2.) I have detailed before but never real seriously, I've always used one type of buffing pad on an orbital, never thought of using any different. If I should polish I assume one of the lightest "cutting" pads with be the best? (would be using Ardex stereo glaze #2 polish)
3.) What would be a good wax for this color? I'd be willing to spend around 30 bucks on something.
Thanks for the help!
