Default Done some Cleaning

Done the astra with some products i was going to machine polish it but they clouds were like " do it do it unwind the extension cord and start and well pour down like fuck" so i left it for another day and just cleaned it with muc off uber shine dodo juice clay bar and dodo juice wax i didnt take many photos as im not the camera type

the car was pretty bad ass dirty but when i took the before photo it was rather bright so it doesnt look as dirty.

Question

Whats the best way (fastest way) to detail a black car? They show up every tiny wee scratch/stone chip

I was thinking claybar treatment, to remove the anti-toxitants etc...
then that t-cut stuff to sort out the deeper looking scratches,
then a layer or two of grey polish stage 1 pro stuff (Cant remember the name)
then a layer or two of clear polish stage 2 pro stuff (White normal)
then a layer or two of top coat sealer.

i've seen a meguires (If thats spelt correctly) product that gives the paint a wet look. anyone used such a thing?

meguires ( i carnt spell ) is dogs danglies .. i used to use auto glym all the time but then tried meguiers and havent looked back ... but bk to topic... so these are my steps for when i have the time

*claybar
*t-cut/ scratch remover if needed
*polish as many coats as you may wish
*sealer
*electric buff with very fluffy soft pad (WARNING only use a buffer if you know how.. end badly if you get it wrong and your car wont thank you for it)

change it to

*claybar
*t-cut/ scratch remover if needed
*electric buff
*polish
*sealer
*re wash

because if ure useing proper buff machine and right stuff its like a super light abrasive so itd just buff off the polish and sealer :P and wash agian normaly gets rid of any buff stuff left over or dust sticking to paint
