Just waxed my car with "Mothers" clay bar

OMG!!!! This stuff works like magic!!! I bought it today at work for $15 and this is the 1st time that a wax took off all the little black spots on my car!! I spent so much on diff brands of wax even meguiars and none of those products were able to remove em. You guys gotta try this stuff!! Its really worth it!!

Isn't the clay bar just for treating small spots that need to be smoothed down? I didn't think you were supposed to do the whole car with it! ???

The mothers clay is a little more aggressive than the Meguiars clay you will find in most stores. The nice thing about the meguiars is that they make 3 different levels of aggresiveness. Its a good idea to do the whole car periodically because that will remove all the contaminates and old wax etc. on the surface. Smooth as glass!

I just realized that you called the clay bar a wax. A clay bar is not a wax and will provide no protection on the surface. It is strictly used to remove surface contaminates and old waxes. So unless you re-wax after using the clay bar, you actually have less surface protection than you did before you started. Hopefully you realized this and its just a typo, but I thought I would include this for anyone who may look at it and not realize the difference. Also always make sure you use a pure polish on the vehicle after claying and before waxing.

i washed my car with california's gold, clayed the entire car until i felt no bumps, then used the carnuba wax that came with the kit twice, then 2 coats of meguiars gold class. months later my cars surface is glass-smooth.

ROFL I get the same results just using EAGLE ONE Wax-as-u-dry haha


j/k but seriously nice job man...really sharp....I spend usually 3-4 hours...but I'v got so many nicks and marks from working at Wal-Mart and having to park there...gah I'd be inclined to get a bubble and a new paint job and put the bubble up everywhere I park....I do use E1 though and it does a superb job...just I need to strip the old wax and redo everything this coming spring....

Ouch man. That hurts. lol. It might look the same in person, but with everything i did here, eagle one doesnt even come close. It also doesnt leave a very significant layer of wax.

You may try a more aggressive clay bar, you can find different ones at auto body supply shops or online, i use meguiars preferrably. You may need a slight abrasive, if its actually on the paint, something like Meguiars ScratchX should take it off without too much trouble. No matter how you do it, make sure to use foam applicator pads, microfiber towels, and then polish and wax the surface.

Personally I use Meguiars #7 show car glaze with my PC, however its harder to apply by hand. Going by hand i would use either Meguiars #80 hand polish, or Meguiars Deep Crystal Step 2. The deep crystal will proabably be the easiest to find at walmart or any auto parts store. I prefer meguiars, i always get the results i expect as compared to many others ive tried that left me underwhelmed. Also make sure you only use microfiber cloths and a foam applicator pad, any terrycloth materials will cause minor scratches and swirls.
