You've got a few too many steps in there that are gonna be redundant or unneeded.

The process is basically

Wash
Clay
Polish
Glaze
Wax

Revive is a hand applied polish, fine machine is a machine applied polish... depending on what process you're going with choose one, no need to do both.

Follow that up with Brilliant Glaze and lastly Americana for a great deep/wet shine.

The glaze before the wax?

Yep.... glaze has very limited durability and as such can/should be applied UNDER a natural wax to get the most out of the application. You can put it OVER, but the effects will be short lived. A car wash or a few days in the sun and its gone without a wax barrier over the top.

The exception to this rule is sealants.... sealants 'bond' with paint (for lack of a better term) and as such should be applied DIRECTLY to the paint to give them their best opportunity to perform. Glazes would inhibit that bonding.

So in very basic terms your order of application will be:

Sealant
Glaze
Wax

Any combination should still have the products applied in that order so...

Sealant
Wax

OR

Glaze
Wax

OR

Sealant
Glaze

etc.
