Wow, you clay bar the car every 3 months? I really didn't think a car needed to be clay bar every three months. I'm familiar with once a year and maybe even twice a year but I never heard to do it every 3 months. Lol.

How much contamination can your car have on it's paint if it's being protected by the quick and slick. The quick and slick should be protecting the paint from contaminants sticking and attaching itself to the paint.

Thats how i like my car, i want it to be shiny all the time lol... but in all seriousness i clay bay it every 3 months i know its over the top but i like cleaning it and keeping it clean all the time, theres nothing like a shiny car in the road.

Once i use this products its very easy to clay bar them and it wont take me to much time, tops would be 2 1.5 hours with a beer on my hand and this is on a sunny sunday afternoon when i have nothing to do.

Speaking of claying, does it hurt if i over do it? like damaging the paint or something. Im OCD when it comes to my car specially cleaning them, my interior still looks brand new and not a spec of trash anywhere.

Bit of overkill, yeah. Lol. Hurt paint, Not at all. With the quick and slick you shouldn't even have the contaminants on the paint to begin with being that it protects the paint. I would think.

I went 6 months between Claus and there was barely anything on my clay when I was done. Proper maintenance should prevent contamination


Bullitts are better than Bullets

I was thinking the same thing. How could someone have any real build up of contamination on paint if someone is regularly waxing or sealing it. Thats the idea behind waxing and or sealing. To prevent contaminents from laying on the paint. The wax and sealant is a barrier .
