Default Clay anyone??????

Okay, I've heard everyone talking about "clay bar".
So I bought a Claybar cleaning kit.
It comes with a clay "bar" about the size of a bathsize soap, and a bottle of lubricant.
Time and weather permitting I only had time enough to do the hood.
WOW did it ever make a difference.
I washed the car, dried the car, then used the clay on the hood and
it was as smooth as a babies.....well you know.
then I waxed (the hood) with Mequires Gold Classic. It makes waxing faster, I guess its because the surface is so clean the wax just glides on.
Its so shiney....
[8D]I gotta wear shades.

Cruisergeo, you are going in the right direction, but you fell short using a wax, you should of used a sealant, lasts longer, better protection, and better shine. Check out the Diablo pics on the general forum. Gary

All my neighbors are using clay now too. The next thing I'll do is get them hooked up with Gary's products. Maybe I can just buy a bunch of his stuff and make a profit selling it. (just kidding Gary).

I'm smart enough to know that Gary doesn't have a factory in his back yard. That doesn't matter to me. His products are great at a fair price. Also, I like Gary. I like to think that my money is going into the pocket of a nice guy who is always there to answer questions. I now have a relationship with a very knowledgeable person who really knows his stuff. Thanks again and again Gary.
