    Buy Bilt Hamber Clay, only needs water as a lube, which means you will never run out of lube. Its really easy to use. Check out claying vids on Youtube. If you can polish your car, you can clay it no probs too.

    your car looks great, did you have a machine or is it all done by hand?

    For peace of mind mate, i gave my car its first real going over this weekend. Never ventured down the clay/cutting route before.

    I went with the Meguiers clay kit, but that was my choice. Read the instructions/watch the video's and it really is pretty easy, and very rewarding when you have finished.

    Again with the Ultimate Compound for getting rid of small scratches and swirls.

    If you take your time, read on the web and the product instructions apart from being quite hard work, the results it will give you amazing!!

    Believe me, if i can do it...so can you mate!
