What is a clay bar? From what I have read it is for getting stuff off the paint. If this is the case how do I use one and where can I pick one up at? An info would be great!
A clay bar is used to get all the grit off your car that falls on it from driving around. One usually uses it just prior to waxing one's car. You don't want to seal in all that crap under your wax. From what I've heard on this forum and others is that one can use it while the car is wet. Many suggest using a quick detailer spray (QD spray) while using the bar. Start with a small section (1 square foot) Always remember to keep turning it over to expose a clean section of the bar. You can usually pick them up anywhere they sell quality waxes. Canadian Tire, Walmart, even have them.
That's basically it. I'm sure others with more experience using one will add more details. This board is a great way to learn! Good Luck !
I use it on my Fusion. I don't use it everytime, as it should [in theory] take off a small amount of clear-coat to get the nasty grimy stuff off as well. Note that I've never had any problems.
Yes, Lammer is correct in that the car has to be wet, as clay is naturally a sticky pliable form. I use some quick detail spray and then go over with the clay bar and then finish it off with a microfiber towel. After I do the whole car, I wax.
Search google bro, that's where I got all my info.
