Only polish your car if you have swirl marks or other problem areas you want to get out you may want to just clay your car, but to do a full polish now I think is unnecessary. I would just clay and put a good wax on and you will be happy.

Polishing can be done between waxing. You might want to look for a spray on polish for this.

Only polish if and when you start to notice swirl marks. First, strip the wax then apply a swirl remover/polish. After that apply your favorite wax. Then....rinse, lather, repeat. J/K on the last part but you get the point.

What happens if you dont remove the wax before polish, just wondering?

always polish before waxing.... not vice versa.

wash the car, dry the car, clay bar the car, rinse the car, dry the car, polish the car, then wax the car.
