Do I need anything else???

I purchased a detailing package not too long ago and Id like to know whether or not I got what I needed or if I should add more options to this. Here is my kit:

Poorboys World Super Slick and Suds
Clear Kote Quick shine
Clear Kote Fine Grade Clay Bar
Menzerna Intensive Polish
Menzerna Final Polish II
Menzerna Full Molecular Jacket
P21S Carnauba Wax

Do you think I should add another polish or any other items to this? Let me know what you think?

Your list is quite complete for most of the steps in the process but obviously you'll need some accessories (applicators or pad, removal towels, wash mitt, etc.). Certainly you can get better results by adding in another step but it's not a must. My answer would also be impacted by how you are applying the products. If you are doing it by hand I would definitely wouldn't do more than these two steps. The higher speed buffer you are using the more you can benefit from a third step. There is not right answer it is really just what works best for you. I think it's safe for you to just do a detail with what you have and adjust your process as needed the second time.

Let me know if you would like more details about any of the accessories you'll need or anything related to detailing.
