I too was worried about clay bar but a neighbour who details his car all the time told me it was a "piece of pxxx", which it was. I'm not an expert but i washed and dried the car, then used the Megs kit containing the Detailing spray, cloth, 2 clay bars and also a quick detailing wax. Took about 2 hours from start to finish and is soooo easy, just keep the clay moving in the same direction, left to right or up and down, keep applying the detailing spray whish is the lubricant, you can actually hear the finish of th epaint improving as you work, after a minute of two it's as smooth as glass. Now the beading is incredible, wish i'd done it sooner.

How often should it be done War Machine?
Depending on weather conditions and use of the car (How often it gets dirty) and on your own personal preffrence, It sould be done bout every 4-6 months...
That way you ensure the 'quality' of the look and that will prevent corrosion and fading in years to come...
I do mine bout every 3 months...
