    That's a fantastic looking reault mate - wanna do mine???

    Congrats and what an inspiration! Total noob question here but what kind of claybar did you use? Are there many types / brands / grades (?)

    I remember I went shopping for a chamois once and said WTF?! I was almost crying with the bewildering array of choices available.

    Excellent work mate! Red!

    well the clay i used was a gift from my neighbour who works at sandal BMW so its good stuff it only requires that you keep it wet and spray your body work with water as you go... but Meguiars is allso good as for shammys... dont realy use them any more
    the process went like this..
    1. rinse
    2. Foam
    3. wash mit with shampoo
    4. rinse
    5. dry using water magnet (or dont dry if you plann to clay)
    6. clay while body work is wet. continue to spray water on clay + body work as you work
    7. finaly dry with clean cloth
    8. wax
    9. goto work on your wheels

    from start to finnish took me arround 4 hours... didnt get chance to clay bumpers, wheels and glass but thats for next time.
