Clay bar?

Stupid "noob" question but I've never ha a nice enough car to worrying about cloying and sealing and all of this.

Anyone recommend a good clay bar and dealer? I've watched videos and read long above stickies and get the "jist" of it all but wanted to tackle this this weekend and wondering what you guys recommend.

Search function does not always bring back obvious responses for me...,

Or the speedy prep sponge! Same exact surface, same decontamination, nearly 1/5th the price!

Want to really take care of your baby and have the cash look at Adams polishes. But like the others said above those will work fine. Congrats btw

Here's a pack with fine and medium grade. They're available individually as well.
