Product Description

Tree sap, overspray and industrial fallout are just a few of the contaminants that bond to your paint’s finish, making it ‘gritty’ and lacklustre. Meguiar’s Quik Clay Starter Kit will quickly and safely restore a smooth-as-glass finish. Polishes and waxes then apply and wipe off in less time with dramatically improved results.
Product Description
Make Your Paintwork 'As Smooth As Glass'. Whenever your vehicle is outside, stationary or in use, it is continually exposed to a wide range of contaminants. Some will wash off, some will not, and these become bonded to your paintwork, dulling the appearance. Amongst others Quik Clay Detailing System will remove tree sap, over-spray, tar deposits, pollution fallout, fine scratches and swirl marks.

Not a bad deal, but for just a little bit more, you could buy a Bilt Hamber regular claybar which is 4 times the size at 200 grams and doesn't require any special lubricant - just water.

Check on Ebay for overall cheapness to include postage....

Clay bar-d my car with this stuff the other day, gota say its awesome. The amount of rubbish tar, and tree sap etc on my car, took it all off. Although you've gota be prepared to spend several hours doing this. Cheap for £10 too heat added.

Cheers...

I did have my doubts about this stuff, but it really is very good. Good price too.

Been this price for a while - I ordered mine 9th Mar. - great price tho.

Got to agree with this. I clayed a medium sized saloon a couple of weekends for the first time with the Bilt Hamber clay and went through about 1.5 to 2 litres of water as lube. If I'd done the same with Quik Detailer, it could have been very expensive.
I'll concede that could have been down to my noobness to claying though.

Nevertheless, this is a good deal for the Meguiars kit.

Have to agree that this would work out a much better deal, as you can use water as the lubricant. The Hamber isn't as malleable as the Meguiars, but just use it with some warm water. Claying imho makes a huge amount of difference to your cars finish.

Thanks op

Another option (as long as you aren't bothered by labels) is BluTac. Lubricate with water, works brilliantly and very cost-effective.

used this last week, 3 for 2 from halfords... its left an amazingly smooth finish

doesn't using water leave water marks?

+1 on the hamber

I've used the Megs in the past but find the Hamber easier to use just by having to use warm water, I get all my detailing stuff from juicydetailing.co.uk they sell it for £8.96 + £2.95 Delivery

This came in handy when my brand new white car had industrial fallout. Shame that it takes ages to get rid of the industrial fallout and that it also comes back again, never mind, the joys of owning a white car.

Dude, BluTac is not in anyway similar to any detailing clay, regardless of label. The clay doesn't pull contaminants off through its adhesive properties. It uses micro abrasives to remove them.
Look at is as a very fine wet and dry paper...

Only if you let the water dry. Once you've clayed the area, simply wipe any remaining water/ residue off with a microfibre cloth or 'Terry' towel.

If you have a small car, you could wash the car, then clay it when it's still wet then hose it straight down afterwards, and then dry.

If you use a good wax post claying, the fallout should be much less of a problem, to not a problem at all.
Collinite 845 seems to be a very hardy wax.

I found adding a tiny amount of car shampoo to the water makes the clay move around smoother. Put it in a spray bottle and soak the panels as you clay them, it works fine. You'll need to rinse everything off at the end though.

No, as far as I'm aware, T cut strips a tiny amount of paint work from your car, which you don't really want to be doing. Claying your car brings all the contaminants off the paint work into the clay leaving you with a smooth unstripped paintwork. Someone will corect me if, I'm wrong though.

You want to buff your car with water?

Ashton

You want to buff your car with water?



No, I want to use the clay with the buffer.

Here is how I THINK the clay works. You rub the clay with some water over the car panels and then buff off with a cloth....... if this si correct i was wondering whether you could use a buffer instead of the cloth or is this not recommended?

You don't buff off, you wipe off. There is nothing to buff off, it's just a clay bar you rub over the car which collects all the contaminants from the paintwork.

Agreed.

T-Cut uses chemicals and abrasives to "cut" back clear coat. It is very agressive.

Clay literally sheers off the contaminant at the clear coat surface. Depending on the contaminant an how deep it's penetrated the clear coat, it will be partially to fully removed. The paint work will also be very, very smooth post claying, as mentioned above.

Snow Foam!

I always add a bit of zymol autowash in with the snow foam, seems to work alot better than stand alone snow foam imo.

BillyHey

Why on earth would you snow foam after claying? Total waste of time [and product].

If you want to do a decent job, then it's in this order:

Snow foam [acts like a 'pre-wash]
Normal wash - two bucket method and sheepskin mitt
Rinse - no need to dry
Clay using lots of 'lubricant' - never let it become dry [some weak car wash mixture is ideal if you don't want to use something dedicated - like DoDo Juice's Born Slippy, which I've found to be the best]
Rinse again
Dry with purpose made microfibre towel
'Chemical' clean - again DoDo Juice's Lime Prime is ace - can be used with a finishing pad on a Dual Action
Apply LSP [last stage product] of your choice, like a decent carnauba based wax.

you'd normally be rinsing/washing/polishing the car down afterwards anyway.
