Clay bar info?

I get alot of road grime and crap living here in BFE. A friend told me to use a clay bar to get rid of it, never used one though. Can someone give me some info, is this something I can do (dont want to screw up the paint!). Also whats a good wax. Usually i just go get my truck detailed but dont have the time i used to.

A Clay bar is a good way to rid your paint of bonded contaminants. It's also a good step in the detailing process to prep your paint for polishing.

It will strip all wax off as well, which is why you are encouraged to wax the vehicle afterwards.

I've yet to try Adam's - TDG Sponsor, but look them up and see what they have.

I suggest a visit to Meguiar's forums to learn about detailing the correct method. I believe Adam's also has videos on their page.

X2 I used to use Meguiar's until I switched to Adam's, products are much easier to use and I think the results are much better.

Thanks everyone for the great responses and kind words:Thumbup: . A Clay Bar benefits your paint before any polishing or waxing is done, by removing any surface contaminates they may cause damage to the paint. A Clay Bar is also great for safely removing tree sap, bugs, and over-spray.

As members have already mentioned, check-out our instructional video about the Clay Bar for additional information: http://www.adamspolishes.com/t-Videos_DVD5_16.aspx.

Thanks and let us know if you have any additional questions.

New money

:kissazz Now you have a cusomer. Really though I need something and I'm grateful for finding this thread and this product. :bow: :bow: :bow: :Thumbup: I have a 35' fifth wheel that would greatly benefit from this and also my girlfriends 89' Toyota 4x4 with one of the nicest flatbeds I've seen. Point is the paint she spent money to have done needs help to put it mildly. It's still there it just needs some lovin. Thanks and I will be ordering some of your product also. :kissazz
