Do I Polish first or Wax first?

I know this is a basic question, but I just bought my first car (w124 230e[:D]) and it needs some cleaning.

Also, the roof of my car has some extensive sun damage, the paint is somewhat intact and covers the top but it's dull and cracked (scale-like in appearance). Will Polishing or Wax further damage the roof? Any tips as to how I can have the paint last a while longer before I respray it?

THanks.

Clean, polish, then wax. And, no, doing any of these three things will not further damage a cracked/peeling paint job.
