So I always try to keep good care of my vehicles. But before joining this forum never heard of using a clay bar after washing before waxing. After seeing all the results and reading up on the benefits it is a practice I'm going to start doing.
The issue is I live in a apartment complex so I can't wash my Cruze where I live. Typically take to car washes and do myself. Now I read that after using the clay bar you should wash your vehicle again before waxing. But seeing as I would have to drive to wash it after the clay bar and then drive back to wax I would just pick up more contaminates on the trip which defeats the purpose. So after I use the clay bar can I just use a quick detailer to wipe the car down and then apply the wax? Also since this will be my first time using a clay bar should I go with a fine grade or ultra fine grade bar?
Thanks for any help you can give.
U can clay bar your car as much as u want but it's not necessary. Clay bar is basically used to get sediments out of your paint (road grime, salt, acid rain, tar etc..) U can clay bar in the sun but I wouldn't recommend it. Always use a quick detailer spray when u clay bar (the car has to stay wet though) Do one section at a time and wipe down as u go along.. It's the only effective way to do it..Do not leave quick detailer spray on car when u move to next section. No u do not have to rewash your car after your done with the clay bar but I would recommend waxing it after your done though.How often should you clay a car? Also you should never do it in the sun, right?
