    It is hard work claying. But well worth the effort. I bet it looks a treat now.

    Using Meguar's Clay finishing kit - clrans tree sap and impurities from the paint surface of your car - really makes a difference! Try it.

    can get just clay and detailing spray (lubricant for the clay) from ebay for about £12 or so - or you can do what I did, go to Halfrauds or similar and get the clay, detailer, decent quality Microfibre cloth (needed for buffing) and a bottle of finishing wax for about £20.

    It takes a couple of hours to clay the whole car, but boy does it make a difference to the finish.

    Make sure that you give it a good wash and rinse before you do it for the best results....

    ps.... look on my Spotless thread - got pics of final finish with that kit on there....
