As with most people I've been washing cars ever since I "helped" wash the car as a child. Then as I got older and got my first car, I washed that too, starting with the old fashioned and outdate bucket of shampoo and a sponge O.O!!! I then saw the light and moved onto wash mits, thank god. In this time though I've never clayed a car before, so I had gone out and bought one of those Maguire's clay bar kits as a test bed to see what I could do with one of those. I think I will eventually get more stuff, probably Chemical Guys products. I started around 2pm and It was around here that it was on and off light rain showers until around 3:30pm when it cleared up abit. I started with some Valetpro PH Neuatral snow foam, before rinsing that off. Then moved onto washing with Simoniz protection car shampoo (admittedly using only 1 bucket) and then rinsing again. Then moved onto claying with the kit. To be honest for a first time user of clay bars this seemed like a logical choice as it had the two components in the kit, the clay bar (I think 160g) and quick detailer providing the lubrication required. My first attempt had been on my 6th Generation, but I ended up getting two small pieces, which I ended up dropping so they where soiled, after this gave up for many months. So this really is my first time at doing the job properly on the whole car. These are the results of that. What surprised me was the amount of dirt that had come of an already "clean" car but was impressed with how smooth the paint felt after I had done it. It was incredible how rough the paint felt prior to me claying it, especially on the roof. I then went about polishing with my favourite, Autoglym Super Resin Polish and then topped off with Meguires Carnauba wax, though I would like to get some Dodo Juice, even as a tester pot to try in the near future. However what annoyed me the most was the people across the road, outside the pub, or at least one of them "oh, its only a Honda, I wouldn't even want to take that to a scrap yard, why are you bothering its just a Honda " I was nearly on the verge of biting, but held my tongue and ignored it.
