I have just ordered my new fiesta in candy blue, when is best to start clay barring ec.

And what is the best polish or wax to use.

I am a total amateur.

Help would be good

Are you looking for durability or ultimate gloss ?

I see you went with candy blue, did you decide not to go with nautical blue ?

I went back to the dealer this morning as I said I would be back out in the morning to confirm everything as I was unsure on colour as of last nite it was the nautical blue but neighbour along road had one and did Inot like it, so this morning I looked and both colours in showroom an I was one over.

I want the car to look really shiny so it looks real eye catching.

If you want to keep it sparking, give it a good clean and light polish. Then apply 2-3 costs of a nice wax :D
