  • Wash, Clay & Wax

    I have never clayed a car before and am cautious about using it, was looking at my local detailers website and seen a package of wash, clay & wax starting from €75 euro which seems to be good value? Paint correction to remove swirls will be done at a later date.

    Not to bad

    An average Detailer will charge 300-400 for 1-2 days work so 4 hours to do a decent wash clay and dry although id expect a wash after the clay.

    The clay could leave marring on the paintwork and it may not look to nice untill you got a decent Machine polish mate

      Cant see the point in claying unless its followed by a polish afterwards and at least a wash. As Ralph has said claying can cause minor marring in itself which is why gneerally people follow this with a polish.

        Indeed I agree.

        If you do clay your car you will need to get some wax on after to protect it anyway.

        If you use a really fine clay bar you shouldnt cause any marring so long as you use plenty of lube and keep turning the clay and knead it regularly.

          If you marr the paint with clay your doing it wrong!

            When using a clay it should be well lubed and you should not push hard! A light rub over should do the trick.

            As said should not marr the paint.

            I've have clayed all my cars since I can remember and never had any issues.
