Another "useless without pictures" post in the this section from me. Well not entirely useless I hope!

The sun was out and my car already clean in the garage so I grabbed the opportunity to try out the fine grade clay cloth I purchased in January.

The point of the post really is to say how easy a product it was to use and I recommend to anyone that hasn't tried one yet, especially anyone that was never brave enough to try a clay bar like me.

Working a panel at a time, it was really easy to remove any remaining marks (amazing what you find on a "clean" car when looking in detail) and the cloth tells you where there are contaminants you can't see from the sound.

My paint wasn't heavily contaminated but it was satisfying to discover that and work the areas that were.

Work today:

Car rinsed, clay clothed, quick shampoo & rinse, dried, polished & then sealed.

Glass polished, metal polished & leather treated while waiting for the sealant (AG EGP) to cure.

Phew!

Going to try a clay cloth, it takes ages doing a car with a bar, might be quicker with a cloth!

Sounds like a good product Graham, thanks for sharing the experience.  Where did you get yours from?

I picked mine up at the Autosport show, having been interested in them previously but not taken the plunge. The seller had medium and fine grades, with the fine grade appealing as I doubted the paint too contaminated and it a safer starting point to get some confidence.

It looks the same as the ones you see online, although most seem to be medium grade.
