Clay bar, polish, wax *NEW PICS*

Post by Phasmatis » Mon May 17, 2010 9:51 pm

Been awhile but I am proud of what I did and had to come show some pictures. This weekend I decided to clay bar, polish, and wax the 04. Car is like a pure mirror and feels like running water to the touch. I highly suggest clay, polish, and wax to everyone :D

So, without further adieau (I am not french, sorry!)

Did you claybar the whole car, and if so how long did it take you to do it?

I would love to get clay,polish, and wax my neon, but i have no garage space to store my car during the summer, so to me it would just be a waist :(

I'd say a proper claybar takes around 4-5 hours, add another 2 hours to wax it afterwards. I usually do mine in parts over the course of a weekend.

It took me a good solid 5 hours with minimal breaks. I don't have a garage either but i just went to a friends and did it there. Still worth it. After all, they say that a clay bar, polish, and wax is not to make the car look good :) Paint protection, its like a condom over your car (except you cant feel it) lol

Oh you can feel it! Throw a towel across your hood after claybar, it will fly right across it. I almost fell leaning up against my fender haha.

You guys aren't talking 5 hours just to clay...right? If so, good lord.

The paint look superb! I'm planning multiple-day details for all of my vehicles this summer; can't wait to get them looking like that!
