Hell yeah it is. I watched a few videos first to see why it's important to clay bar.
I bought the Mothers clay bar kit at the Zone for $19.99
If you do it, make sure you don't drop the bar lol. If you drop it on the ground, throw it away.

Take your hand and move it across your paint(only after you wash it tho, don't wanna scratch it with dirt). You will notice it sounds like sand paper.
Then clay bar it, you won't be able to hear a thing. Smooth as can be. Beautiful finish.

I'm no expert on this. It's only my first time.
But as you clay bar, you use a polish at the same time. I'm pretty sure this will cut down on water spots too. I always hand dry my car when I wash it, I have about 10 shammie clothes I switch out. And I always seem to have some water spots ghost themselves onto my car out of nowhere.

Imagine running your finger down a strip of sandpaper. Thats what your car feels like before a claybar. All these anomalies in your paint cause it to feel rough. When you clay bar, it actually removes the roughness. Makes it feel like glass afterwards!

Don't know if skmeone beat me to this or not but NO! DO NOT POLISH QT THE SAME TIME. You need to rinse the residue off first.

I didn't go back over it with polish. All I did was clay bar it and wipe off the excess like it shows in the video. I'm taking it tomorrow to wash it. Then I'm gonna polish and wax it.

K. That's good. If you get after the clay right away it rinses off easy. I would recommend a sealant before you wax. If you can get a good layer of polymer based sealant on it will protect for a long time. Let it cure for a few hours then wax it for that shine. If you want the best regime I've ever seen check out. ammonyc.com their basic regime is awesome. Then top it with a high quality wax. His skin product is worth it weight in gold.

I did a marketing research thing on his company. Larry is a really cool guy. His stuff is expensive but it's awesome. If you go to his video section and click on his regime video, you'll see how his 4 part system works. I think it would look great on that Azure mach
