My mothers WJ washed and claybar
 
So after my ordeal with sandpaper-like finish after 7 years of weather i decided to look into the claybar. After lots of good suggestions and ideas i went to wal-mart and got the meguiars clay bar kit. It really did make the paint as smooth as glass like brand new. Amazing. And i thought i was going to screw up the paint or something but i didnt. :D

Pics of the 03 WJ, followed by a before and after claybar and wax.

I think it came out pretty well from what it was. The paint does not feel like sand paper and it is like brand new again. I peronally like the onyx green peral coat, kinda rare but my mom hates the color. I like how in the sunlight its a green blue ish where as in the shade and at different angles its grey. I think its pretty cool.

hey mike it came out nice, what wax did you use? With swirls like that you might want to spend some time with meg's swirlX (the new one) to try to smooth those out since the paint finish is fresh from the clay
