    Default Car Clayed today (but not the Vectra)

    Had 5 mins spare today so whilst browsing in Halfords bought some Car Clay. Bit of a waste cleaning the Vectra with it being a 08 so cleaned the other halfs Volvo which is a 98 (S reg). Pretty amazing stuff, the amount of dirt you can get off a clean car, & the finish is great without massive effort. Have only managed to do the roof, boot & bonnet this evening but will be going for the rest soon. Highly recomend the stuff if you see it & it's probably cheaper on-line than in Halfords. May well do the Vectra, after all as it's done 4500 miles & the amount of flies welded to the front is on it's way to a world record.

    It's amazing I now think that clay & a good polish is probably all you need, as previous I may use it to see if it gets the welded on fly's off the Vectra (the one's that are still there after a scrub with a sponge).

    I spent a few hard hours claying my car a month or so back. Like everyone else has said, it's a fantastic product which not only gives you an excellent finish but seems to make the polishing etc much easier.

    Now, I wonder if blutak would do a similar job....

    I did mine last week and spent the following days constantly rubbing the paint as i was so happy with the results!!

    Even gave a few customers a feel and sold a few clay kits

    You can buy a car clay pack (piece of clay, lubricant & polish). Squirt the lubricant on the car & rub over with the piece of clay (once it's dirty fold it and continue). When finished apply the polish, it is not abrasive it just pulls the dirt out of the lacquar

    OK.. well once a car is washed we all think it looks lovely and clean... but over the years our cars get lots of road grime and dirt which gets ingrained into the paint. So what clay bar does is removes this ingrained dirt to make the paint clean and smooth like new... It works by spraying a lubricant over the paint and then rubbing the paint with a clay bar which is a bit like plastercine... the clay bar is usually white in colour and as you use it you can see the dsirt coming off...

    try it... it is so easy to use and the results are amazing...
