I have never used clay bar. I am seriously considering it. I like Meguiars products.

Be sure to wash your car again before you wax or clay bar.

Wax and clay bar are 2 completely different things and should be used in conjunction with each other. You use the clay bar first (I don't think it matters what brand) to remove old wax and nastiness (technical term) from your paint. Then you put on a fresh coat of wax.

Oh okay well thanks for the clarification of that. I saw posts on here and it seemed like it was just a different way to bring out the shine and now that you put it that way let the weekend begin.

1.Clay bar
2.Wax

I was not aware of that. Thank you for the information.

I also was unaware of the technical term "Nastiness"

Officer had it right! Clay bar will really clean your paint, it's a bit of work but you will feel and see the difference when you are done.

The only problem is right after you clay bar, you need to wax the car to protect it's bare paint. I use Meguiars for this too.

Then I use EagleOne's "Wax As You Dry" after each wash when I chamois it down to keep it in good shape.

Rub you fingers across your "clean" car and if it feels rough as they slide across the paint...then you need to clay it. Then wax it afterwards. Autozone..pep boys..meguires or mothers has a clay kit..

Yea after I washed my car and dried it for some reason I decided to rub it lol and it felt rough. So this means I should clay bar and then wax?
When you clay bar do you have rinse the car afterwards or immediately wax?

How do you determine if your Machine needs a clay bar treatment? My Maxima is always garaged, very very seldom driven in the rain, washed regularly, (Several times a week if driven at all) waxed when I feel it is necessary. The paint is very shiny, water beads up on the surface when wet. Do I need to clay bar?

You have to feel it. If the car is clean, run your fingers along the paint. If it doesn't feel "smooth" then it's time.

I used a liquid clay bar, I liked the results a lot.

Wash your car with dish soap before you clay bar. It will get most of the old wax off otherwise your clay bar will get dirty and full of wax real fast. Trust me they're not cheap.

You should be able to get two cars worth out of each piece of clay you tear off. And at least 3-4 pieces per "whole" bar. After you bar the car..re rinse it then proceed to wax..

Lil trick I use...after to open the bar pkg, get a piece of plastic or small zip lock baggie and get as much air out of it as you can, then seal it, it'll help keep it from drying out so fast.
