What is a clay bar? Been around cars in the UK for many years, never heard of it. Often refered to in US letters. Can any UK member translate in to English equivalent?

When you're done clay-barrin' the car, the paint feels as smooth as a babies bottom! :D

All the above statement s are true. It really does wonders, but takes a fair amount of time.

I used mother's brand, it worked well!

Yes you wash with a soap like dawn to take off old wax then clay, but with a spray bottle of water the clay has to be kept moist as does the section of car you are working on.. Then you wax... Zaino sells a good kit and comes with directions

I generally wash twice before the clay, as you want to be sure the car is absolutely PRISTINE!

I once had paint oversprays all over my car and I used clay bars to clean them off! It was so messy it took me 2 days and two bars to get the job done :irate: But it worked!

For my regular car washing I use the Meguiars Gold Class car wash. It's funny cause it's a shampoo with conditioner....who knew that a car needed a shampoo and conditioner like your hair! Thought it was kind of funny. Works really well and makes my car feel really smooth after washing.
