clay bar cleaning

Don't ask me how it works but it does.here is a little advice ..
Buy just a clay bar and use a little shampoo in water insted of paying
For lubricant..(about 7 pound)
Use plenty of lub...1 dry rub will mark your paint..
Wash VERY well as anything hard will be picked up and stay on the clay untill you
Next fold it....
Have ordered some poorboys black hole show glaze to fill all the blemishes
and some
Dodo juice deep blue carnauba wax..
Will post results as and when...

Re: clay bar cleaning

Look fwd to the results an thanks for the advice however i`d always recommend polishing after claying anyway and maybe a glaze or sealant before wax.
Ive started using a "fake"clay bar if ya like as its less messy-its better than i thought it`d be however ive not tried it on any really rough cars yet.

Theres about 3-5mm of like a hard rubber on the surface of the block facing you rest is a foam block, may be clay but dont think so,the surface is wavy rather than totaly flat to drag crap out of your paint-i liked it when i used it.

Supposed to be able to do approx 15-20 cars before its ready for the bin.

Re: clay bar cleaning

Sounds expensive 22 quid a bottle....

Where do you get the sx4 from?
The black hole glaze is a sealent but I have to say this is all new
To me all I've ever done is wax my other cars..not had one that I realy
Wanted to care for before..always wanted a scoob finally got one..
some might say they are ugly but they have no taste becides they would
ALL love there car to sound that good
