    Getting my car ready for the power tour, I decided to try the clay bar system and what a difference in made. I should of done this years ago as it removed all the grit and grime.

    It's a great paint cleaner.

    What are you going to use for a wax and/ or sealant?

    Be sure to stop by their booth on Power Tour and let them know. I'll be there with my yellow 69 Camaro.

    I will use Meguires or Mothers wax to finish it off. I haven't got that far yet.

    Oh yeah, if yall dont know, feel your paint when you are washing your car, it should feel like glass. If you feel tiny bits of grit almost like grains of sand, you need to clay bar

    Most of my paint is original on my 1970 SS L78, so I really noticed a difference too after using the Mother's clay bar! (Tried it on a newer paint job, and it was not really noticeable on a test patch.)

    I have been using Liquid Glass for most of the 41 years I have owned the car. I try some new stuff once in a while, but always go back to the old standby, I haven't found anything really that much better. (Just make SURE you have the vehicle CLEAN before you apply it!) ;)

    Clay bar(s) can also be bought from www.detailedimage.com

    or probably vendors on AMAZON.

    Nothing special about MOTHERS clay bars.
