    Yer just warm water mate with a bit of shampoo in it if you wish, the clay just needs a lube to slide on (oh er)

    Vehicle : insignia vxr

    Trim : vxr

    Engine : 2.8 turbo

    Year : 61

    Mileage : 38000

    as said , just water in a spray bottle , just keeep it wet , i cut the bar into say 6 small pieces , as if you drop it bin it , once you wash the car dont dry it , just rub the clay bar over and you will feel it get smooth , knead the bit till you get a clean bit and carry on , making sure it is well lubed with the water , after you have done i would give the car a quick wash , then dry and go with the white diamond . round the whole car then wipe off , the sealant next but id leave that on for around 20 mins ( just time for a tea/coffee/beer ) then wipe that off . hope this helps .

    the vectra has gone , but not far away so ill still see it form time to time

    Lee not tried the nattys paste , but as you may know ive only been using a sealant on my car ( zaino ) for the last 2 years now and cant see me changing back to a wax . ive found that the wax will bead a bit better imo , but the sealant seems to give it the edge on the gloss side again imo .
