Detailing clay
 
Will a clay bar remove an existing coat of wax on the vehicle? Thanks.

Dawn will remove the wax too. I thibk you want it stripped before clay so clay dont get full of old wax/

Strip first with Dawn then clay bar.

Is there a clay that won't remove a coat of wax? I've heard of the pinnacle ultra fine detailing clay that claims it won't strip wax. Anyone have experience with this?

The Pinnacle green clay is about the mildest clay you will fine. It might not strip a sealant, but if you just have a normal Carnauba wax I bet it will remove it. Why do you need to clay? If your paint has contaminates in it, you need to strip everything and start over.

Chances is are, if you need to clay, you need medium clay to remove contaminants. Otherwise, wait until you really need to clay. If you simply need to clay a spot, do it, and apply a sealant to that section.

If the clay is mild enough to leave your LSP alone, it's probably isn't doing much, and you probably don't need to clay.
