hmmm..don't take my word for it...

but the clay bar is I don't see how it could hurt..just be careful along the edges

disclaimer: I do not represent Zaino in anyway and I'm not 100% educated on all their products.

I was under the impression that the clay bar was used to remove impurities from painted, cleared surfaces.

I did the whole Zaino process but DID NOT clay bar the stripes. Ive used the Z-2 and Z-5 on the stripes with no problems jsut didnt want to take any chances with the bar.
