Clay bar and wax - (Pix)

Well started with a foggy and cloudy day and ended with a sunshine. Since I was free today, decided to spend half the day detailing the vehicles.

All of my products are Meguiars.
1. Washed with Meguiars gold class wash.
2. Clay bared with Meguiar's clay bar kit.
3. Used Meguiar's detailing spray to detail over.
4. Finished with Meguiar's quick wax.

Did the same to both vehicles. Z took longer because it had much more grime and filth. Total time was 9 hours. Both car's paint feels like glass now smooooth. Enjoy the camera phone pix.

Re: Clay bar and wax - (Pix)

it is a sealant for the paint, 2 layers will keep a nice protection barrier for your paint.

Re: Clay bar and wax - (Pix)

Gorgeous shine!

I am sure it has been asked elsewhere, but I have clear bra on the bumper and hood...are you supposed to put wax over clear bra?

Re: Clay bar and wax - (Pix)

The clear bra needs the wax protection just as much as your paint does. Just take a little extra care wiping down when it is hot (spot cleaning or removing buggers) as the material is softer than your paint.

Meguair's stuff is indeed kick a$$. I've also fallen in love with AutoGlym products. Top notch!
