    try this. put your hand in a ziploc bag and run it over your paint. if it doesnt run smooth and you feel little snags and bumps you need to clay bar. it should glide over the paint smoothly. the clay will "lift" small contaminates out of the paint u cant see. regardless if you clay u will feel the difference when u wax. clay and look at your clay bar after 1 panel. u will see the contaminates. it will feel much better. highly recommend it.

    Does anyone use a clay bar? I ordered the Clay bar kit from Mothers and plan on using it on my daily driver SS since it sees a lot more dirt and such...
    From what I heard Zaino is/has fillers just like the product you are using.....

    Nowhere NEAR the amount of fillers as that other stuff. But yes it has 'light' filling properties. Most LSPs do, to some degree.

    Another product that's good at gettin fine scratches and swirl marks out of the clear coat is 3M Rubbing Compound. I just did my T/A last week, it made an INCREDIBLE difference!!

    For the correction step, I have been using Meguiars Ultimate Compound. Works great for the price.

    I would rather my paint fall off than use anything by turtle wax. That 'black box' crap lasts a week or two at best. Do it right or don't bother.

    A buddy of mine swears by the clay, haven't tried it yet. Has anyone tried the budget buffer form the June 2010 High Performance Pontiac mag ? The show how to rig up a 6" buffer with some Showroom FX products. I think I'm going to try this when it warms up.

    yeah, definitely do clay bar on it, ...the paint surface will be smooth after claying it. then wax after claying it. the mothers kit is great, comes w/ detailer spray that you use a lubrication for the clay bar.

    I used that black box stuff and the Polish wouldn't come off, it took me two hours to get it off for some reason. Now I only use meguires.
