    i usually have mitt in one hand clay in the other to use the soap as lubricant. I have just always sprayed decon after to catch anything leftover essentially. Makes sense the other way also.

    I think you would be surprised what a polish job will do for that paint. You won't get it perfect or close to it without significant work but a good one step polish will certainly clean up some of that and revive some color and finish.

    If you are not going to polish the paint. Then wash, clay, panel prep, and coat. I would recommend using the panel prep of the coating brand.
