    alot of people will start with a snow foam if you have the option of doing that

    i wouldnt dry the car after washing as claying you can just use water as lube, after the clay i would wash it again as you may get alot of loose stuff on there which if you polish it can damage again

    also aswell mate you will find your best methods of doing things, i have been detailing for about a year and i still dont know what i like to use and what i prefer, i just try different things all the time

          Edited your original post:


          1. Powerwash motor, Shampoo using 2 bucket method - Chemical Guys GLOSSWORKZ Gloss Enhancing Shampoo 16oz, rinse

          2. Rinse off

          3. Clay bar car with lub -Chemical Guys CLAY BAR (LIGHT) -A HUGE ELASTIC EVERYDAY USE POLY CLAY BAR 200gr & LUBRICANT DETAIL SPRAY

          4. Was again as above

          5. Dry

          6. Polish - Chemical Guys WET MIRROR FINISH ULTRA SLICK NON-STICK GLOSS MAGNIFIER

          The above is not a polish mate so it will not help to correct any defects that you may have such as hazing / scratchs. If you do want to polish then try Autoglym Super Resin Polish

          7. Pre wax clenser, such as Dodo Juice Lime Prime Lite or Zymol HD Clenser

          8. Wax - XXX Hardcore Paste Wax

          WHEELS

          1. Chemical Guys Redberry wheel cleaner, rinse

          2. Chemical Guys Wheel Guard[/QUOTE]

            Not 100% true as some clays need proper lube whilst some clays will also work with water

            Water on some clays is not enough to lube a car and will in fact make more of a mess of paint work and can create more swirls and scratchs

            As long as you do the general above then you will be fine, i tend to

            Bilberry wheels

            rinse them

            Snow

            Rinse

            Wash using 2bm

            Clay (with optional lube if necessary)

            Wash (find snow is not quite enough after a Claying)

            Rinse

            Dry

            Polish

            Was/Snow

            Dry properly

            Wax

            and then Smile

              clay with only water . thats heading for dissaster .

              think what he meant to say was no point drying the car before claying as it`s gunna get wet anyway followed by another wash then dry .

              with the saying claying we all know a lube will be needed and those that don`t know should read up on it 1st or ask
