Re: do i need to clay before poli-seal???
The thing is Iron-X is relatively new to the industry. Typically claying was the answer for removing bonded contaminates from the paint. There are some other ways, Finish Kare has a paint decon system along with a couple others.
But what it is thought is that when you clay and there is metal imbedded into your paint the metal shears off and part is still there. By using IX you eat away the stuff imbedded below the surface leaving behind a much cleaner healthier paint allowing your protection to bond better and fill in the micro pits better protecting the paint for the long haul.
if you want a top end look and want your LSP to last Claying is a must. IX makes it better but for many it's still not a required step. IMO I'd call it a preferred option!
