Can this or will this end the clay bar?

NANOSKIN Autoscrub 6 inch Pad - Better and Faster than Claying



Wow is all I can say about this new tool and new technology. I believe this will change the way most pro detailers and DIYers will prep their cars. This is truly a time saver and will pay for itself after a couple detail jobs. We have spent in some cases 1-2 hours claying and prepping a midsize sedan (in rough shape) we recently tested the AutoScrub on an Audi S8 and we were finished in about 15 minutes! You really won't believe this until you try it yourself. The AutoScrub will make you leave your clay bar behind.

NANOSKIN AutoScrub works fast and achieves professional results with the new advanced rubber polymer technology, which replaces the use of clay bars.

A dual action orbital polisher is required. AutoScrub will safely and easily removes paint over spray, water spots, tree sap, rail dust and other bonded surface contaminants from the surface of automotive paint, glass, moldings and plastic.

AutoScrub works great with your favorite detail spray or clay lubricant. Unlike the clay bar, the AutoScrub can be cleaned by simply rinsing off the accumulated contaminates with water. If you drop the AutoScrub on the ground, no worries, just rinse the sponge pad clean and you're ready to keep using it.

AutoScrub allows for sturdy and controlled handling, unlike clay bars where constant reshaping is required.

Features
- Lasts up to 4 times longer than clay bars
- Glides on & off easily for a slick finish
- If inadvertently dropped on shop floor, simply rinse clean
- Up to 50-60 uses before you need to replace it

Directions
1. Thoroughly wash vehicle free of dust, sand, and dirt.
2. Mist sufficient detail spray or clay lubricant onto the surface evenly.
3. Polish the surface with dual action orbital polisher using light pressure (Low Speed).
4. Wipe off residue and move on to compound and polishing or even go straight to your last step.

Important tips:
- Sufficient lubrication is crucial to the AUTOSCRUB application.
- DO NOT use water
- DO NOT use with rotary polisher.

It says don't use water, so if you have to rinse it (accidentally dropped)...do you then have to dry it or wait for it to dry?

sure you can get them here.

NanoSkin AutoScrub

if you drop it, you want to rinse it with water, no need to let it dry.

Do not use a rotary!

You want to use the orbital polisher at speed 1 or 2.

Which speed would you reccomend? And you have no fears of something getting picked up and just... Spinning around on the paint? How often do you rinse it off? Every panel?

you want to use this on speed 1.
you can wipe down the panels after you go thru the complete car or panel by panel.

This is badass, I can't wait to hear some reviews!!! I still have a whole Adam's clay bar waiting to be used after a 3000 mile road trip this summer from DC to California . . . but then again maybe I'll just get this instead. Thanks Phil for the info!

This is intersting and saving time over clay would be awesome but i don't know if i want to add another round to the already 4 things I apply with the PC...I don't think my hands can take any more vibration lol. Still, 15 min is not bad at all.

Quick question, where is the best place to get a porter cable or whatever is best to use for this. I usually do everything by hand but the more I read the more curious I'm getting to see how much better I can get my Camaro to look using a machine over my hands

Thanks in advance

Amazon put the Porter Cable 7424XP on sale a couple week back for $90...that's the best price I have ever seen and bought one. Many people here use it and I just tried it out for the first time today. It works great and is perfect for people who have never used one before. I did find that it saved me tons of time over hand waxing, however, my total detail time went up because now I have added a polish and glaze to the mix. I highly recommend getting one.

I got the Porter Cable 7424XP last week from Amazon for $99 shipped. I also ordered the velcro attachment and 2 if each of the Meguire pads, and also 2 if the will buffing pads.... spent more on the accessories than I did on the main unit. What really amazed me was that I ordered Monday morning and it was on my porch Tuesday when I got home from work!
