Clay is crazy. It's strange how you can feel the surface smooth out as you use it. I never knew how much of a differance it made till I used it. Only draw back is it takes time and elbow grease!

man i use to detail cars at a dealership, and i wasent a pro, but you should learn how to wetsand, compound, then polish a car with a high speed buffer... makes the car look brand new, but i would practice on a junk part because you can burn the paint easy, but the claybar can be ur best friend somtimes

most of the time you will not need to wet sand, we always had to because our painter would always wear smell good **** in the booth and we would have fish eyes in our paint, but its not really that hard, its just one of those things you need to take your time on

Forum user "workinprogress" knows a boatload about this stuff. I've read a few of his posts on detailing, and they taught me plenty- you better believe after the snow clears up and the sun starts shining enough to get past 35 degrees that I'm using some of his tips in making my baby look good.

I used a Meguires clay kit. Comes with clay, quick detailer, a micro fiber cloth and a little bottle of wax.

Im kind of afraid to clay my black car , Im afraid of swirling it or something awful. I clay my white cars twice a year with no problem but black is a whoooolle 'nother story.

Man I washed and dried my car yesterday, then ran the clay bar over it, and while the results are awesome, my buddy dropped the clay bar on the floor after doing only the top. Better believed he waxed the rest of the entire car :)
