But if you properly follow up with a paint cleaner and then a really good sealant, maybe a couple coats of it, then your paint will shine so bright nobody will notice the chips - they'll be looking for their sunglasses!

I think the clay bar is a great idea so long as you start the regimen right away. I used it on my minivan & it really exposed a mess. The mess was my fault though. I left the van for months without washing or anything. On the PT, I started using clay bar after the 2nd month. It helps keep weird crap off the paint that would probably dig in and scratch.
I figure every 3 months or so will keep my paint in tip top shape.

Call me obsessed but during the summer and fall (I got Junior in July) I washed the car every week and fully detailed it every other week, including claying and waxing. :D :D 8O

Umm .... yeah, sorry about that. I knew I shouldn't have been using that cherry flavored chapstick. laughing laughing 8O

Oh, back to the topic, I think claying is one of the best things you can do your car's finish. I love that stuff!

Ok, lets say Mike-in-Orange is a school costodian and he followss this procedure to was his car:

According to a news report, a certain private school in Washington recently was faced with a unique problem. A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom. That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints. Every night the maintenance man would remove them and the next day the girls would put them back. Finally the principal decided that something had to be done. She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man. She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night. To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, she asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required. He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it. Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror. There are teachers, and then there are educators. :

Now this KISSING thing has to stop!!!!

:D Razz laughing Wink
