Kinda surprised at the smoothness of the paint

Ok, so everyone talks about rail dust, etc so I get my zaino kit yesterday and get up bright an early this morning to clay/polish Expecting to find contaminates.

I start in on the hood and notice that everything is slick as bat poop.

Did the whole car even though it was slick...I didn't feel any drag whatsoever. Nothing on the clay.

How bad is contamination on everyone elses?

I did find a piece of lint that had been painted over

I found pretty much the same thing. Very nice factory paint, and got almost nothing when claying the car off.

Agreed. I clayed the whole car and found nothing. Factory paint was in great shape.

R6P folks have waited for long enough GM!!! Build early orders before any new dealer orders regardless of allocation. Stop treating your most loyal customers so unfairly!!!

I did...not much going on, but I picked up more on 4 rims than I did on the entire car.

sorry old thread, i know. I clay barred my durangos wheels (bright silver) and WOW it took all the grease stains out washing wouldnt, i got all the brake dust between the lugs, and i noticed a diffrence even before wax. I also noticed it makes cleaning the rims MUCH easier. I 100% recommend it! I used meguiars clay bar kit, AWESOME PRODUCT BTW!
