    Default Finally Washed It!

    I finally got round to cleaning car today. I know I haven't dressed tyres but its my first attempt at anything other than washing it so forgot to buy somethings. Please be kind. Hope it looks OK

    Ye thought about it but ran out of cash at halfords and didn't want to buy the large kit they seem to only stock. After seeing contamination on paint today I think I need to clay. Any recomendations on best clay to use and how to use it would be much apreciated.Thanks

    get the meguairs clay kit...that kit is enough to do your car twice....

    use the clay lube in it to keep the panel wet.. never work it dry..

    tear off about 1/4 of the bar.. work it between your fingers to get it warm, then lube the panel and rub the clay over it..keep watching what comes off, it's amazing..keep folding and turning the clay, you want to keep any picked up contamination away from the paint....

    Kit costs around a tenner iirc..
