    Deck plate, Flowmaster Delta-Flow 40 series, 265/75-16 Wrangler TDs, more to come...
    What order should I apply these products:

    Meguiars Quick Detailer #66
    Meguiars Polymer Sealant #20 and
    Meguiars Cleaner Wax
    My neighbor has Carnuba Wax in a bottle and suggested I finish with that, but I think I should use either the Pl=oly or the Carnuba...
    I can't remember if I did Quick Detailer first, then Polymer Sealant or the other way around. What do ya'll think? :confused:
    (I did a search, couldn't find anything definitive)

    Thanks ya'll!

    Most likely in this order:

    1. Polymer Sealant
    2. Carnauba (some poeple like to put a carnauba over a sealant, but you shouldn't put sealant over a carnauba)
    3. Quick Detailer (for touch ups; may not be necessary)

    The kicker is the cleaner wax as it probably will remove whatever you put on before it, and if it is a carnauba product, you don't want to put a sealant over it.

    ^That wasn't on the list. :D

    However, that should come first and polish should come after that (another item not on the list).

    To be clear, a thorough washing should actually be first!

    I can go one step more.......park your truck in the shade before washing!

    Direct sun will cause water spots.
