We all have opinions, a professional goes through more steps then a guy in his back yard garage and they usually look for a quick product that is mediocre in comparison with a professionals many step process.

Man I thought I was the last old skool guy!!! LOL
Nope Jester, there are a few of us left and I hope the new guys coming into the trade pick up the habit that feel is a good one...to hard to keep things straight no matter how good you think you are of how long you've been doing it. I put my DA in the bottom of the tool box along with my air file and my silicone wax in the early 90's when I got off flat rate and did more of my own work.
I don't wax anything either...I feel that it can suffocate the clear and cause it dull out over time....if you put enough clear on and take care of your finish, you can polish it for years and it always keeps coming up glossy.
