Whats up everyone. I have off friday, and I bought a mothers brand claybar, and the mothers 3 step ultimate wax system (I read about it another thread, apparently very good)
My car was somewhat detailed at the dealership but not thoroughly, I see lots of swirls and what not. The previous owner probably didnt really care if it looked perfect either.
I really wanna make it shine, and dont care how long it takes... so just curious, are there any steps that should be taken before using the claybar (besides washing it of course)? For instance, I got some rubbing compound for the minor scratches-- some of them disappeared completely, so Im guessing they werent even really scratches, so does the clay also get rid of those types of marks? I am nervous about using more rubbing compound than I need to (again here, is this a valid fear or do you have to rub all day to do any damage with that stuff?)
Any thoughts/feedback/stories would be great before I spend several hours doing the entire car on friday.
