Especially on Honda's / Acura's. If you clay, you must polish. Claying is an abrasive. You are missing the second most important step, which is polishing out the defects of the clear. First is proper prep IMO.....Wax is only a temporary fix in this situation. After a few weeks or rains it will look like poop :( Good luck.

Ex Creme Glaze is a glaze. Not a filler glaze more of a cleaner glaze to properly prep the surface for the LSP. :D

You can get a Photobucket account for free and host the pics there then post them here.

As for Polishes...Your gonna need a machine and pads and the polishes. Its a good investment to get into it :D

EZ Creme Glaze is THA bomb! Super easy to use and on dark colors it fills ever so slightly, cleans the surface for proper wax or sealant adhesion. Check my post about DI sale as they stock this product. (Sorry, dont want to advertise/spam by linking this to it). CG themselves also carries this product but shipping is not cheap from them.

I just want to recommend that you try out Autoglym HD as its now it walmart and possibly a bargain in the wax range (due to it being a premium type wax- it used to cost $100 here, now $35) It shows the true markups...
