    Not so much pain ... how often will I use it if I buy one? I have a half decent one at work I can borrow.

    I came close to getting one about a year ago. I chickened out.

    Tyler, what do you think?

    Generally, when you can run your hand along the *clean* paint, and feel little bumps and dirt, even after washing, then its time to clay.

    I clayed today, just the claying i dont think took very long, def under an hour. I think it went something like this:

    1) wash
    2)clay ~ 45 min
    3) wash #2
    4) ssr1 via PC on orange pad
    5) nattys blue paste via PC on black pad
    6) wheels, tires, wells, trim, glass, jambs, etc
    7)interior--vaccuum, wipe dash with poorboys protectant (this stuff is awesome!!
    8) polish exhaust, some other misc.

    whole job took from 10:30 this morning to 5:30 pm, stopped to eat lunch.

    the time it takes to clay probably reflects how contaminated your paint is, mine happened to be in great condition before i started, hence, the relatively short amount of time it took.

    I think for clay, it depends on how much gunk you have in the paint, and what brand of clay you're using.

    I clayed a few weeks ago, and started off with Meguiar's clay (I thought I'd try it). It was terrible. I had to work spots for a long time to actually get anything out.

    I found a remnant of an old Clay Magic bar I had and used that...it was so much better.

    It probably took me 2 - 2.5 hours. I think I was overusing the clay (making too many unneeded passes).

    Really? I just used the Meguiar's and really liked it - better than the Mother's I have used in the past. I had no trouble getting off the tougher stuff. Have yet to find Clay Magic anywhere as I have read it a good one ...

    Good. If I can get up off of my lazy a$$ and do it, so can you! When you step back and look at the result, it makes it worth the effort.

    Until a flock of birds sh*ts on your car ...
