       Task 4: PAINT CLEANING & WAXING
After the vehicle is thoroughly washed, the painted surface should be properly cleaned with a Clay Magic® clay bar. This will prepare the surface for polishing and waxing by removing harmful contaminants.
The vehicle is now inspected for the compounding, polishing, and/or waxing phase. To determine the correct system and products for your vehicle's condition, use the Auto Magic® Paint Condition Chart.
The Paint Condition Chart consists of 4 paint types: Type A, B, C, and D. Type A is the best paint condition while D refers to the worst.

THE ABRASIVE METER:  The Auto Magic® Abrasive Meter is an exclusive quick reference guide to the aggressive nature of products in the Waxes, Glazes & Compounds category. Products listed in the green area are mostly waxes or sealants and are not aggressive. Products in the yellow area contain mild abrasives. Compounds are the most abrasive and are located in the red zone.
                                                             

Recommended Procedures:

DETERMINE THE PAINTED CONDITION
Each vehicle may require a different process for compounding, polishing, and waxing. This process depends upon the condition of the paint. Some vehicles may only need a protective layer of wax while others may require compounding and polishing. Use the Paint Condition Chart to help determine your paint condition. 

CLAY THE SURFACE, "PAINT CLEANING"
Spray #49-Body Shine® clay lubricant onto a 3' X 3' section of the vehicle's painted surface. Clay the surface with CM-2200 Clay Magic®. Use as much pressure as needed to lift the contaminants off the surface. Now dry the area with a soft, clean towel. Repeat this process to the entire vehicle. Your vehicle is now properly cleaned. 

FOLLOW THE PAINT CONDITION CHART PROCESS
After you choose your paint condition, follow the recommended repair with the product choices listed on the Paint Condition Chart. Refer to each product technical bulletin for additional usage and helpful tips.
