    dude.. You might want to do some reading of previous threads before you ask such a open ended question.

    drive your car to arlington, and pay Scott $500, and it will look good again :big grin:


    or drive it to me, and i'll charge you $200, and it will look better than it does now, but only 40% as good as Scott would make it :big grin:

    If you could be a little more specific about what you mean by grainy you would probably get an intelligent answer. If you're referring to after washing and you can still feel grainy particals on the paint then you need to purchase a clay bar (Clay magic, Meguiars or one of the other 10 or so companies). If that isn't the problem then post up more information.

    sorry for being a dumbfuck i was tired, but you hit it right on the head. After i wash the car there is grainy crap still on the car. but it seems to be more on my hood then anywhere else. thanks

    how much does a clay bar cost?

    Kits are like 10-15 bucks depending on the brand. Some are more or less. It comes with lube and everything. Just wash the car down and make sure theres no like loose pebbles and rocks or debris on the car (so they don't get stuck to the clay and drag along the paint) and then read the instructions and go.

    The grainy crap on your car should come after a couple passes with the bar. Just make sure you read the directions. :bigthumb:

    You'll probably want to polish/seal/wax your car after you clay, to help prevent the granny crap from getting back on your car :mamoru:

    the wax will also protect further oxidation since the clay bar will basically leave the paint clean and open to the elements.

    DON'T FORGET TO USE ALOT OF LUBE (aka detailer). It needs alot of this stuff so you don't scratch anything.

    Or you can clay as you wash. Saves you a step and saves you time as well. Just a suggestion though.
