Alright Oppo, now that I have a car that I somewhat care about the aesthetics of (I am more shocked than anyone), I should learn something about how to svend it. And I know some people here know a lot. Teach me, please!

So, assume I know absolutely nothing, because I do. What are the basics? What starter equipment should I pick up? Is it a bad idea to wash without waxing? How hard is waxing? What the heck is a clay bar for?
