Using A Clay Bar On Automotive Paint

Some clays are harder than others and leave less margin for error between effective lubrication and not enough. If the clay lubricant/detailer dries on the paint surface, a further spritz will let you wipe it off. Clay bar treatment kits are available that provide you with the necessary lubricant and enough clay to do plenty of paint, multiple cars worth. Some kits come with a sample of wax, too, to give you a chance to test one manufacturer's formula of wax. If you've never clay-barred your ride, take a moment to run your hand across the paint. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit
