    Default Clay and Flies attraction

    Well folks, I clayed my dads motor last week only for it to piddle down on top of it straight after so now wax had been applied, etc.

    Anyway, since then I have noticed that there are loads of flies around the car and they wont go. Once the rain stops, they come back. Loads of the little bleeders!

    Why is this....whats the clay got in it??

    Anyone else noticed this on their motors?

    I washed and gave a coat of Nattys yesterday, and it seems that flying ants were swarming everywhere yesterday in the warm dry weather. Not pleased, splatted quite a few on my nice clean windscreen after driving around, and what does my missus do this morning? puts the wipers on! argh!
