    I have only ever used a quick detail (34 usually) to claybar a car as a lube.
    I heard there are schools of people who use just their carwash and this is a faster method, only now my boss was telling me horror stories about how he fucked the paint on his V-dub with the fast way of doing things and im apprehensive to try it.

    Any experience claybarring with the soap/water technique? because i waste alot of 34 and that aint good.

    Just make sure the water is really soapy and not just watered down. Work in small areas at a time so that it doesn't dry up completely. I use two buckets, one with soapy water and one with clean water and i rinse the area after i clay it so that the soap doesn't dry on the panel. :dunno:

    I've never had a problem using the clay as I wash method. Keep the area soapy and you shouldn't have any problems. If he messed up his paint he might have had a dirty clay bar. Any residue that's left over should come off with the polish that you apply.

    I've used soapy water before and no problems. I just like to use the QD better for some reason.

    When you mixed your soap with water, just save half a gallon on the side. Wash your car with the remaining, rinse then use that half gallon to clay while car still wet.
