Washing car over two days

Morning,

Due to time constraints I didn't manage to polish and wax all of the car yesterday. Last night we've had a small amount of rain. With the remaining panels can I just clay bar, polish and wax or should I look to shampooing these again?

Cheers

They'd need to be washed again sadly. Airborn contaminants will be on the panels along with dirt and dust which will Marr the paint, get stuck In the clay and swirl paint.

Thanks for replying.

Slowly managing to get a coat of wax on now. Just the roof and nearside to do!

Oh and the interior...

I have half leather half cloth. What would be good upholstery cleaner/shampoo to use?

Cheers

i fully machined polished and ceramic coated mine over 4 days - if you know this is going to happen you just work accordingly, so each day i washed and fully decontaminated the area i was doing - just left 2 days between each to allow the ceramic to harden
 
Daft question, once I have the car waxed (BH double speed wax) is it just a case of shampooing the car after that whenever it requires?

Yep… and don’t use loads of shampoo as that can help remove the wax, always work to directed amounts

and then just re wax when the wax has gone

There are neutral shampoos you can purchase that are less aggressive then top up the wax with a coating such as wet wax or done and dusted...
