I DO NOT recomend a clay bar because you can induce marring and holograms if used correctly....especially on new paint. If you wanna see some great how to's for clay and other detailing...see detailedimage.com They are a vendor here and have great how to's and daily specials.
+1. I was gonna go with meguiers #21...possibly just run with the sealant, no wax.

Re: Waxing Fourteens

use coupon code 10offJG at detailedimage.com

carnuaba wax is more of a beauty coat and another level of protection

You're absolutely correct about using clay bars correctly, but they are very easy to work with. You simply need to make sure you spray on enough lubricant to keep it gliding smoothly. I've never had a problem with it, including a new corvette, CTS, and an M5. I strip off wax with dish washing detergent and clay bar my cars at least twice a year and you would be amazed at the particulates the clay pulls out of the paint, even on new cars that have been sitting on storage lots, trains, or trains.

Scott I am with you on the PS21. I love the look but it does not last long for me at all. I have used #21 as well good stuff but if a carnauba wax like #915 from Collinite lasts longer than #21 and looks great, why go through the additional steps?
Granted #915 is hard to work with but if you go thin, you win.
BTW You can get Collinite 915 Marque D'Elegance Carnauba Paste Wax at Collinite 915 Marque D'Elegance Carnauba Paste Wax - 12 oz | Free Shipping Available - Detailed Image
