You won't believe how well it works on glass, and you can use your old dirty clay bar because the dirt won't scratch glass like it would paint. But not too dirty of course.

That seems simple enough. I guess I just always imagined the proper way to use it would be like using a squeedgie over the entire car. If you can grab a handful of clay and just wipe back and forth like a washing mitt or something, then that would go much quicker. Thanks for the tip!

Glass use seems like a good idea. I wonder if it would take away those annoying windshield wiper arcs that don't seem to wash off.

Not likely. Unfortunately those arcs are usually actually etching in the windshield caused by debris caught between the wiper blades and windshield over the years. Some people have had luck polishing them out, but usually requires a replacement windshield.

Looks nice. Just something about a big red shiny truck that makes me want to go back to my southern roots and go make my own trail through the woods and mud.

Have you thought about a stealth enclosure for your sub to free up some passenger space? This is a high end option, but I think there are others out there -
