    Claying is a very worth while part of detailing your motor, you don,t need to do it every time you wax it though, I would say clay your motor once or twice a year.

    It is a long reach to the middle of the roof on my estate and I am 6ft 2inch. I would imagine some members need to stand on a stool but make sure it is safe and steady, and there are no sharp objects on your clothing if you are leaning on the paintwork.

    I can't imagine doing my estate, I get sick by the time I have washed and dryed the car, never mind when I have to detail, polish, wax etc
