    Default Claying

    Ok this may seem stupid but ive got some megs clay ready to use before trax (Im saving it) But what i want to know is how do you use it as ive never used it before. is it a case of spray on the lube and rub (Ooh err!) or is there more to it that that?

    Make sure the car is clean. Break it in two, flattern it out spray loads on car. I even spray the clay. Rub backwards and forwards until no resistance. Check clay and re-mould when dirty.

    Just one thing don't spray to big an area, spray maybe 12" square them clay that bit then move on, if you try to do a larger area you will find the lube dries out when its warm and you may mark the surface.

    When wipeing the clay use just enough pressure to keep the clay on the surface no need to scrub at it, the clay will pick up the contamination as it passes.

    If you find the clay sticks then apply more lube.

    If you drop the clay then bin it or save it for your wheels never use clay on paint that has been on the floor.
