Going to clay bar my black gt on Tuesday but never did it before so I'm looking for some inputs... Lol
+10000DDTCM said:Keep the surface nice and slick with spray,do small sections at a time and wipe dry before you move on to the next section,kneed your clay when it starts to get a little dirty,tear your clay in half (if you have a newer car half a piece should be fine) and most important.......if you drop it.....toss it. Dont even think about using that piece again.
If I use that tech wax can I do a paste wax over that ?nhcowboy said:As long as you don't press hard AND use plenty of the spray... Gently glide it across the surface. Fold as discussed above.
So wash, clay bar/polish, wash, wax (meguir's tech wax 2.0 is a synthetic sealer/wax. Works really good).
The reality is I never have done the second wash... Just a really good wipe down with the detailer. But it would be better to wash.
I have also done the clay bar while washing (still using their detailer/lube). Hence the need for only 1 car wash. I'm just lazy!!
I'll just use the tech wax.. How many coats do you do?nhcowboy said:Won't hurt. I've done that, but the gloss on the TW is unbelievable. May not be worth the effort.
I don't wax over it and I have a black car. Like. Glass.
Prep is important... If you have major flaws, a clear coat safe polish and orbital will do a better job than the clay bar... Sometimes I do that instead if the clay bar. That is what takes the minor flaws out (scratches/swirl marks).
I never really used detail spray maybe I should start so I don't have to wash my car every 2 days lolnhcowboy said:I go can 1-3 months. Depends on how often it rains. And I wash her 1-2 times a week. And detail spray every other day or as needed. Side effects include uncontrollable drooling and dry eyes from staring without blinking.
