Clay Bar

Finally decided to give this a try for the first time ever, and see what happens with 10 year old paint, needless to say it came out really smooth before waxing, and super smooth after waxing. Just took some time, effort, elbow grease and a few beers.

Ceramics Coating is next, hopefully this weekend, weather pending as its been hot as hell this week.

It's pretty amazing isn't it?

I just wash the car, rinse it, then wash it again while i clay bar it with the othe rhand and Bam, rinse / dry and done. Looks so good.

My first clay bar was bought from a local auto store, what a freaking rip off, it was like 40 or 50 bucks.

I have a stock of bars now. let me know f you need one ad I can sell it cheap. Brand 3m

Ya amazing is really the right word, to have your car feel so dam smooth.

I used Chemical Guys Clay Bar & Synthetic Lubricant, good deal on Amazon right now for $27

But with how rough my paint was I went through almost a full bottle of the lube, normal for how my car was, I am not sure, but the end look and feel it was money well spent.

You can also just use soapy water instead of the clay lube.

Yes I know but the kit was cheap. There are a lot of options to use other then the lube, but being the first time I wanted to do it "the right way"

Mitt is the way to go, so much faster then using an actual clay bar.
