Removes overspray, contaminants, bugs, etc. Makes your paint smooth. It will also remove the wax so you must wax the car afterwards.

"Brake dust, industrial fallout, acid rain deposits and rail dust all can adhere to your vehicle. These contaminants often contain metal particulates, which accounts for the ease with which they penetrate the clear coat to attack the paint below. These contaminants then oxidize, and they allow rust to spread beneath the clear coat. Tiny orange spots today, total paint system failure tomorrow! Detailing clay removes these contaminants in order to keep the paint healthy and vibrant.

Detailing Clay also removes stubborn sap, tar, and bug remains. Detailing clay works wonder on glass as well"

It's been sitting in the garage all week, the wax will be this weekend, not enough time in the day with family and all.

Yup they sure are , I bought the car used hash marks were on it when I purchased. I'm planning on getting the 45th stripes and hash marks painted on in the next year or so.

Anyone who thinks they don't need a clay bar cleanup once in a while should do this one simple test to see if you are a candidate. Wipe down an area of your car hood until you are confident it is clean and smooth. Of course don't wipe over any suspended dirt unless you rinse first. Then , go get a plastic sandwich bag and place your hand in the bag and feel the surface of your paint through the bag. It's quite unbelievable the first time you try it. The bag magnifies what the dermal ridges of your hand can't feel. Then , clay bar the paint, wipe down clean, and test again with the bag over your hand.. Then you'll see what the clay bar removes that normal washing and waxing leaves behind.

Dod not know that. Will have to try this on my mirrors, always have a heck of a time getting spots off of them. This would probably work well to get rid of the "wiper tracks" off my wifes SUV.

I really like the hockey stick decals and would probably get something like that if I removed the hash. I love the hash though... I would just love it a whole lot more if it were even..
