that is why I always tell people to do it. It really brings back the depth to the paint. And makes it SOOOOO smooth.

mother or meguiars...both make good bars. It comes down to which lubricant smell you want Motheres is cinnamon and meguiars smells like a fresh toilet bowl mint if I remember correctly.

I used Clay Magic, and I didn't notice a smell to the lubricant I did run out of lubricant towards the end, and I just started to use some waterless car wash as lubricant. The only reason I ran out so soon was that I was using too much. But I guess too much is better than not enough.

more is always better, picking up an extra bottle of the lube (normally the same as the quick detailer) is never a bad idea.

You can always, use your car soap, wash your car really good, rinse, rinse out dirty bucket, you should use two buckets one for rinsing the mitt and the other with soap, then make a tonne of sudsy car soap and use that as a clay lubricante hel of alot cheaper than using all that detailer, good luck using clay makes your paints surface unbelieable
