Re: Would clay bar solve this issue?

Mike bro...you cant mess up the paint with a clay bar...so dont worry about that. You can marr the paint if you rubbed it on a dry surface...but it could be quickly fixed with a squirt or two of quick detailer. You will be thrilled at how easy it is----

Re: Would clay bar solve this issue?

Alright, everyone's good words of wisdom and encouragement is making me really want to try this now but its another lovely day here in Chicago. 56 and rain. So i want to try and get the kit today perhaps and shoot for tomorrow.

I checked out the video that you suggested irf and it was a good watch. He makes it seem so easy. Im really looking forward to this.

Finally after i clay the mothers WJ is the quick detailer good enough to apply to the car after the clay-ing? Or should i be tossing on a coat of gold class that i have? http://www.meguiarsdirect.com/detail/MEG+G7014J

Re: Would clay bar solve this issue?

I got the Turtle wax Ice Clay Kit, that comes with a liquid clay and then a clay bar with the liquid detailer. All ive done so far to test it out was the front of my hood where I took the Jeep emblem off. I could see where the emblem went because of all the dirt imbeddedin the paint. Just after using the liquid clay stuff the paint looks great, no dirt or swirls and got rid of scrathes. This is the first clay kit ive ever used so i cant comment on the others, but im impressed with what this one does so far.

i have this and the bars are too damn small i would go with mothers clar bar kit

Re: Would clay bar solve this issue?

I'd get the Turtle wax Clay Bar kit, works better than just a clay bar alone.

Re: Would clay bar solve this issue?

I have used the turtle wax liquid clay and it is no replacement for a real clay bar [it is the ultimate contaminate cleaner for clear coats] smooth as glass

Re: Would clay bar solve this issue?

I've used Mothers and Maguires they all seem to work the same so I get whichever is cheaper. I keep the QD spray in my left hand and bar in my right and just spray as I go, you're going to use the whole bottle to do the car but it makes a huge difference, even if your car looks clean your bar will be black by the time you're done.
