I need to detail my car. Probably after the lights are fixed and the suspension is installed.

oh okay.

well, start with this stuff

Chemical Guys Citrus Wash

it will remove all products you've applied to your car down to the clear coat. wont harm the clear.

Then you want to make sure the paint is dry.

Get some clay lube.

I recommend dodo juice born to be slippy clay lube

Dodo Juice Born to be Slippy

get a decent size of clay, medium or fine grade depending on how much you want to remove or how fine the particles are stuck in your car.

do a panel at a time, half the hood, door panel, half roof...etc.

spray lube and in a back and forth motion run the clay over the section. make sure it is well lubed
