Some pics of mine after a clean :)

Once you've introduced yourself why not throw up a few pictures of your car or a project thread?

Heres a link to a vid with the stuff I use http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfEfLGL59GI, just make sure the car is washed first , then use the paint cleaner before the clay bar otherwise u will use up the clay bar a lot quicker .

Oh and if u drop the clay (easily done) bar u have to throw it away because otherwise u will be scratching ur paintwork with any tiny bits of dirt stuck to the bar . And dont do it in the sun .....

You will be surprised by the amount of dirt that will come off your paint , the bar will turn a manky goldy brown ...even after a wash so it does really work.

you can get it on ebay a bit cheaper but you have to pay for delivery aswell

or cleancar.ie http://www.cleancar.ie/detailingclay.html

Clay doesnt remove scrathes :wink: only takes off contamenents like sap, insect droppings etc. and leaves the paint nice and smooth/soft

Get yourself "Bilt Hamber" clay and its used with water not the spray that comes with meguairs, have used both, but find you need less Bilt Hamber compared to meguairs.

no its clay aswell. you probably need a compound to get rid of the scrathes. you could clay the car and try polish the scrathes out if they're really light with autoglym srp and wax with something like meguairs gold class or collinite 476s or else leave the car somewhere to get detailed
