it smooths out the paint surface from debris and overspray
super easy to use, just make sure you use lots of lube
and do not use water use detail spray and use lots of it, and turn it after every panel
Pulls dirt and contaminents (sp?) from your paint surface. Rub your hand over your paint clean, then clay a section. You will see a HUGE difference.
(make sure to use lots of detailing spray, buy an extra bottle because you will need it)
Oh, and it is somewhat tedious, but like Soko said, use lots of detail spray so the clay doesn't track on your paint
I clayed my GTI this weekend. Took me about 2 hours, including 1 coat of wax after each section
took me about 30 min on my friends jetta trek, looked awesome and felt awesome afterwards, i even let kazimer use it on his jetta
Yep, you guys are right about the uses of claybar...
you don't need detail spray - just mix a good soap with some water in a spray bottle. no sense in wasting $$ on detail spray.
it works better than you could possibly imagine, but just make sure to work out your arms for a few days beforehand... it takes a while!!
soap isn't meant to be on your car long term (more than a few minutes)
i'm talking a capful of good car soap into a whole spraybottle of water. you've still gotta wash the car again after the clay bar.
You've used this before with good results? Same as the regular lube?
It works. You can also do it when washing your car. Just wash the whole car, then go back over it with soapy water and clay it. Do a section at a time, then rinse.
Mikel :IBScottwax:? in the morning? I was already detailing by then.
yup... that's the ONLY way i do it. no sense in wasting Quick Detail on it...
I have the lube now that came with my box of Clay Magic, I was just worried about what to do when it ran out. I'll just throw some soap and water in there. Good to go!
