They still use #26. Even if the vehicle didn't have any wax on it, I would personally still do the paint prep. Most of the vehicles are coated with a cosmolin wax coating to protect it from the salt air on the boat voyage. That is melted off at the VPC, but I don't know if it leaves anything behind that you would want removed.
Hope that helps
