    Still new to detailing as hardcore as you can get, I'm just used to wash->clay->polish->wax->Beer
    Are you satisfied with how it looks and the protection you have provided for the car?

    If the answer is Yes then I don't there is any other work that needs to be done.

    If not then you should do a wash, clay, polish, then wax

    Cool, thanks for the info. After thinking about it a while I'll most likely put a layer of polish and wax down just to keep it looking new and protected.

    All non metallic painted cars from Toyota have no clear coat.

    Keep up the (synthetic wax) maintenance program.
    And:
    Be sure to put paint protection film (PPF) on the
    vehicle's most vulnerable areas, especially the front
    clip, or she's going to get really p!$$ed in a very short
    time when this thinly-applied-OEM-paint starts showing
    evidence of rock chips and other road-rash "inflictments".
