Citrus Snow foam, dried, then used T-Cut Clay Bar Kit, took around 2 hours to do.

excellent job. I too used clay for the first time ever today, used the Meguiars kit but as my car is silver, the results aren't as impressive as yours. Very easy to do don't you think?

It was the first time I used a clay bar, I was a bit nervous, but after 10 minutes I hit V-Tec and had the whole car done in 2 hours lol.

That looks really good, and may inspire me to clay mine tomorrow. However I know it would be covered in pollen before I have even dried it all off!

Well done mate!

I could never get mad reflections as good as that.
Only in the mirror Liv! lol :popcorn2:


I have a question...ish

I have vinyl on the car, advertising my business.
I can imagine the claying will be easy around it, it'll just look goddam awful when the vinyl comes off? ( in 3-5 years when I trade the car) ...

There are cheaper clay bar kits, but for the first claying I thought I would get a good brand name.
Not sure on the vinyl, Should be alright, as you put a spray on and glide the bar over, not sure though
