Thanks for sharing your review, I like clay but it does take a long time.

You may find some minor marring on the softer paints found on Hondas etc. Most GM and Ford paints fall into the harder catagory. There are always exceptions so first do a test spot and re-check before doing a whole car only to find you have done more damage then good. When using one of these towels use light to moderate pressure with plenty of lube to prevent marring.

Its always possible. I would personally keep a rinse bucket near bye and rinse the claying surface frequently to help prevent marring.

Can we use Adam's Detail spray instead of the clay lubricant?

Sure. I just fold mine up and keep it in the closet with all my other stuff.
