Damn!!! My car looks and feels great after claying, but damn, can't beat the luster of black when clean.
And yes, the rocker panels benefit extremely well. Well worth the $15 and 6 hoursof manual labor (you needed that just to burn off the fat gained from the beer).
BTW Nytro, what kind of camera do you use? Even the new Olumpus D-490 ZOOM Digital we have doesn't take anywhere near the high a detail pic. I want a better digital, but can't afford to spend over $300 (I know, I can keep dreaming).
Yup, I did it. It'* been a week and I wipe the car down every other day with a terry cloth followed by a damp chamois. Like glass. I washed the car on Saturday at a Philips 66 Soft Cloth Wash and when they hand dried it on the way out they only did from the moulding up -I was really p-o'ed since I had bought the premium wash for $13 and I didn't have my chamois in the car and I was 50 miles from home. I asked them if that was the best they could dry a car for $13 (they literally took no longer than 15 seconds x 2 people) and they said that'* what I paid for -I told them to F- off
(I don't get p-o'ed easy, but that just blew my mind that they could charge $13 and not dry the most important part -the part that will suck up the most dust and dirt when wet.
Anyhow, Will, I am betting you aren't putting enough detail spray on before claying.
I also used the whole kit on my car (ok, I did my brother'* Harley Road King'* tank, front fender and the painted engine covers too, but that wasn't much space).
I fugure I will probably do this once a month during the summer and once every other month during the winter.
