I always do wheels last. Thats just me.

Aquapel is supposed to be much better than rain-x so i suggest trying that.

You do not want to clay with water left on the car from a wash. Totally dry the car & use a quick detailer for a lubricant with the clay.

If you have never used a DA polisher before i suggest doing some reading on how to properly work the paint with it. Autogeek has some awesome write ups in their how to section.

You can use a high lubricity car soap as lubricant as well. Wash your car under the shade and you can wash, clay and dry in one go.
You can do that with your car if you wish. I never would with mine or a customers car. Just asking for trouble IMO.

The only time i would even consider to use clay is to prep the paint before compounding, and it would have to be really rough. Compound will remove all those small surface contaminates anyways, and as long as you keep the pad clean you wont put any of those contaminates back into the paint.
