Re: Clay Bar and Brilliant Black

If you really want to take it to the next level, try using a glaze and a carnauba wax on the black. It's just fantastic like that.

Re: Clay Bar and Brilliant Black

I too don't let the dealer prep my car, or wash when in for any service. Tore up a contract on one deal because they said they "had" to detail it...they changed their mind and took my money. I use a "paint prep" before my clay, like isopropyl alchohol, or some kind of solvent(from local detail supply place, clear coat safe) to get after any tar or heavy buildup(usually not too much, cars get washed weekly or more) and the clay doesn't get the little black tar dots in it, then i may use Dawn to wash after the paint prep, then clay. Always clay before polish too for best results. Then if you polish, remove the polish residue with a alchohol wipe down for the sealer to bond, then after that cures, put some good carnuba on top...you will not be disappointed.

Re: Clay Bar and Brilliant Black

I use soapy water myself, that's all that's in the lube anyway. I've used on my wife's PXR brilliant black Charger - after winter you can barely see the metallic in it, the clay bar really brings it back!
