    laquer/clearcoat...same thing...laymans/trade terms..

    you'll not cut through the clearcoat when you use clay.. just don't clay more than once or twice a year..

    Just to get your head round it mate, its just like a bit of blue tac, you rub it over the surface you want to work on, weather its paint, alloys or glass and it picks up all the crap that is stuck to the top of your paint that washing alone wont shift. Its not a polish so wont actually do anything to the paint just the things that are on the top coat unless yo dont lube it up enough and then it can scratch. HTH
