Hamilton,
The #7 should be used until you get no oxidation coming off on the removal rag. (residue should be product colored, not blackish) Once your to that state the removal rag will squeak profusely when wiped accross the surface. Once you get to that point it is time to wax. #26 is very good but so is Meguiar's Gold Class liquid wax. The Gold Class looks great on the paint but will leave white residue on trim, between panels, etc. The #26 will not leave any residue, in fact, I use #26 on most of the trim to keep it looking tip-top.

The best removal combo for both looks and effort is removing in a quick once over with a 100% cotton terry, then giving it a final 100% perfect removal polish with a 100% cotton diaper-like cloth. The nap of the terry removes most applicated product effiently but doesn't quite get the last 10% or so. The diaper does not remove large amounts effiently, but is superp for a final polish. You can finish with #34 but it isn't necessary. It works best for de-white dusting areas surrounding panels done with Gold Class.

Interior: Lexol products are among the best. PH leather cleaner and conditioner for the leather...Vinylex for non leather surfaces. If you apply the Vinylex and leave it will shine almost like Armor All. If you apply, let sit, then buff with a dry cloth it will leave a nice patina. Treat the wood like you wood the MOST fragile exterior paint. Meguiar's #'ed products work well, application and removal with a very soft 100% cotton rag (with MINIMAL amounts of pressure) and of course a Q-tip dunked in #34 for crevices.

This should get you one very fine looking job. If you run into any difficulty or have any more questions we are always happy to help.
