Speedy Surface Prep Towel: So much easier than clay!

I know, I know, you guys have already seen Todd's and CamaroDreams' amazing reviews and I really can't compare myself to them... but here's one thing they haven't shown: A video of it in action!

Just an extra push for people to throw out all that clay and start using this beast of a towel.

Nice video. A couple of minor tips you may want to try is I saw where you sprayed the hood with lube but for a little additional caution give your prep towel a liberal spray also.While using the towel some may want to keep a small bucket or container of water or ONR/water ( or whatever your choice of lube is )close by to rinse the towel a few times during the process of claying (toweling) the whole car.

I actually sprayed the towel before the video, but thanks for the bucket tip, I'll use that from now on

You used the towel on the whole car without rinsing? lol. You're lucky you're Opti-Coated

Think of the rinse like the process of folding the clay in. You don't want to keep dragging those contaminants over the car.

No no no, I'm not making myself clear.

The hood was the first part that I used the towel on, but before I turned the camera on, I had sprayed down the towel. Also, after every panel, I just went into my bathroom sink and rinsed it The bucket is a much better idea lol

As far as opticoat, yeah it's pretty much the shiznits lol

Oh, LOL. Gotcha now. You just incorporated aerobics into your detailing. That's actually not a bad idea. Maybe it'd help me keep off a few lbs

Using a DA is like lifting weights, why not throw in some cardio with the claying?
