Re: First time clay bar, black paint?
- You don't need to remove the wax before you clay, the claying process itself does that.
- Claying a black car will always mar the paint a bit, so polishing afterwards is pretty much mandatory, specially if you have soft paint.
- Get a mild to soft clay, steer away from the aggressive stuff.
- An optional step BEFORE the clay is to decon the paint with IronX, it will remove SOOO much contaminants that you'll be able to finish the claying in 10 minutes or less... It's an optional step.
