Detailing you car with a clay bar a couple of times a years essential.
Makes the paintwork silky smooth.

+1for meguiars here

Its hard work but worth claying if you love a great finish, not for Mr Average though!

Will this take hardened tar spots off? I've tried the Autoglym tar remover but it didn't touch them. Thanks.

+1 for Bilthamber imho and only £12.99

Im sure most people have enough cloths n stuff

havent tried mine yet

I would use AutoSmart Tardis for removing tar spots.
Claying without detarring/deironing will mar the paint.

Petrol worked for me and came with the car for free

Decent deal but for the amount of clay you get in a box of Bilt Hamber you cant go wrong. Makes one hell of a difference to my white A6

Same product £12.99 delivered Amazon...

Im def your average joe then, let the illegals do it for £10 then take it back when its dirty.

+1 for Bilt Hamber, can use plain water as a lubricant, don't need a detailer spray

Would you good people recommend using the Maguiers "step 3" wax immediately after the clay treatment?

Thanks

Op don't feel the need to defend your deal before you've even posted it! Ppl will vote what they think, and you may get some good conversation from the comments just ignore the naysayers.

Once you've clay bar'd, do you need to apply polish to the paintwork and buff?

Assuming you don't have other issues you want to attend to, Clay -> Polish -> Wax. There'll be those around who say/do more but that's all I do and never found the need.

Where did you lose your need?
I'll help look for it. oO

My white car is covered in tar splashes following some road resurfacing near where I park. If claying is not recommended to remove then, what should i use? Thanks.

Tar remover maybe?

Just buy any car clay and use de ironised water and a Costco microfibres. Much cheaper and the same results

@thar use autosmart tardis just spray on leave and wash off. Amazing stuff. Autosmart vans are always driving round just flag one down.

+1 for the tardis. Claying the tar spots will quickly reduce the life of your claybar. Use the tardis with an old microfibre cloth because you will have to throw it away afterwards.

Have a browse on the detailingworld.co.uk forums.

I beleive the clay bar will remove what ever wax or polish your car may already have i think the point in clay baring is to prep your vehicle for polishing and waxing to give the best results i would 1 = Pre treat with bug tar remover if needed only £1.00 at pound stretchers .
2= Wash and thoroughly rinse to make sure all debris has been removed before clay baring.
3=clay bar (lightly) using either water or detailer which is recommend as it acts as more of a lubricant the clay bar is also easy to drop which you don't want as will collect all the crap off the floor and scratch your paint work.
4= Rinse and dry.
5= Apply polish and buff best results with an electric buffer.... (Clas ohlson limited duel head buffer only £40 cheapest dual head buffer out there.
6= Apply the car wax to seal and protect.

I would just add that this states its a complete kit but i can't see no … I would just add that this states its a complete kit but i can't see no wax which will finnish the job any recommendations on a good wax liquid or hard ?

Box Contains
Surface Detailing Clay Bar 100gr
Rapid Detailer - 500ml
Super Resin Polish - 100ml
Microfibre Cloth
Were is the wax? description also states........ " Seal in your shine with Autoglym's Hi Definition carnauba wax for that wet look shine with added durability "..... but as i can see nothing to say you will receive this in the kit ? so maybe not a complete kit but still good for the cash iv'e already ordered and waiting.

I haven't washed my car for 9 months, you are all wasting your money

Savage, it says for added durability - basically buy some wax!

Good kit good price, better products out there but more money too

Still hot

If your car's not worth washing, maybe it's YOU who has wasted their money? (_;)

again for Bilthamber. I've used the Meguiars in the past but being able to use plain water is a bonus for the bilt

These clay kits are all on a 3 for 2 offer at Halfords...........so if you need a decent wax to go with it will work a couple of quid cheaper and its prob easier to pick it up rather than wait for a delivery...ques is this or the meguiars kit better

I only got in to car detailing after I found out about it by accident on YouTube, I've been doing it wrong for years, Lol.

Anyway after watching hours of videos on the subject from different people I know what to do now.

I think it may have given me OCD though as I'm always trying to get out and detail the car, but the weather is not helping.

I would have to recommend the Meguiar's range of products and as mentioned they are currently 3 for the price of 2 at Halfords at the moment, I've been stocking up on supplies.

The 2 guys who really seem to know there stuff are Mike Phillips AutoGeek and Larry from AmmoNYC.

This video from Mike explains how to Claybar.

This video from Larry lists his Top 10 Mistakes when Detailing.

Check out there respective channels, they are a wealth of knowledge.

Here's a couple of bonus videos.
