I did go there and didn't find any in my area. I went to two detailers on Friday and one wants 172 and the other 152 for interior and exterior and they both said that the yellow marks can come out though the one couldn't speak English too well so I didn't understand much of what he said.

Sounds fair. Just make sure you discuss with them what they will do in the detail.

I believe the little rust colored spots are from something they're using in the road salt in our area. I see them all over the white Monte Carlo but only during the winter. Clay bay takes them right off. Do you drive on the Youngman Expressway by any chance?

I didn't have the time I would have liked to dedicate to clay baring but I did get it done and it did remove a lot of the spots. Unfortunatly nothing can be done about the chips from the road though. I spend 60 bucks and got a lot of stuff you guys recomended though and it worked great. I washed the car, clay bared, used some glaze or pre wax stuff, then liquid glass, and invisible glass(i think).

Even though it was a gloomy day it still shines

Thanks! I can't seem to get the spot where it looks like somebodys bumper lightly scraped mine though, would this only be a buff out job or do you think i just did not spend enough time clay baring it?

Claybar only does so much. A heavy polish should do the job, but you will need to reapply the sealant when you are done with that.

sealant? would that be the liquid glass?

Oh, forgot to ask, how often do I use the liquid glass, and do I just wash and use wax for washes without using liquid glass?

Yea, LG is a sealant, and nothing more. It doesn't polish or anything.

You can use it as often as you want. The more coats the better the protection. But every 3 months or so keeps a nice finish. Putting wax on top of it helps the paint shine nicely too.
