i got to reading the threads on here, and decided that i wanted to clay my car and give her a damned good dose of TLC. i got myself down to Halfrauds and purchased the autoglym clay detailing kit. my plan was as follows:
1. hose off car and wash using some unknown shampoo, can't remember the name.
2. clay the car
3. polish using AG SRP
4. seal car using AG EGP
5. stand back, admire and drink beer
however, i got as far as doing the bonnet on the gtv, and lost the will to live
don't get me wrong, the results are amazing
but it takes so bloomin long! i took an hour just to do the bonnet
however, it looks smashing, and i can't wait to do the rest of the car. and OMG the results are great, so smooooooth
one question though, do you clay while the car is still wet using the lube stuff? i dried it first, and i seemed to be getting through the quick detailer very quickly to keep it moving nicely.
