I believe so, however they match price and shipping I think as in if a product is listed as only 3 dollars but has 32 dollars shipping they will match the 35 dollars total price.

Todd, please correct me if I'm wrong.

Great info....thanks!

I believe the answer is yes it's fine, but I'm a detailing noob so I'll ask. Is this ok to use if I do my polish and wax by hand?

Just kidding. I know it's a little pricey, but I think you'll really be happy with the results. You might not truly appreciate it's greatness unless you've used clay before, and can see just how much better this truly is.

I have been talking to my club about detailing and everything else, and clay barring my car is something I have yet to do. I was gonna get one until I saw your post yesterday about this and subscribed so I remember the name and where to get it. It seems so much quicker and easier to deal with than the bar. I wouldn't know from experience, but if you all that have clay barred your cars says so, then I believe you.

Im just waiting for the funds.... I have used clay before and found it works very well... but I would rather I use something like this where i can just rinse it off as opposed to tossing it....

Ok, well it happened last year, about November that I wondered into 'The Ladies Lounge' to talk about all things female with no males getting offeneded or grossed out about what we talked about. I met Sarah and Nicole in there and they invited me into the other lounge on here. The rest is history. It's an off topic section where we all BS with one another, we talk cars, mods, girls, guys, food, clothes, weather, etc. and then talk shiz to one another as well. SO, all in all, my post count climbed being in there and just chit chatting with all of them. Really nice ppl that I consider my friends!! However, that place isn't for the sensitive or weak at heart. It gets crazy in there.

I do post in my Camaro Club thread quite a bit, and when new members join. I usually lurk in other threads and give comments on subjects I think I can help with or stuff I have done myself. For the most part though, I hang out in there.
