Islandson81 Posted May 8, 2014 Share Posted May 8, 2014 Greetings, one and all! I have a buddy who's seriously into detailing. He insists that the claying step is totally unnecessary....that a good washing, followed by intensive polishing ( he alternates between GPS and PS ), preferably with a DA, is sufficient to clean the paint and do some minor or heavy correction, depending upon the pad choice. Naturally I was skeptical. And then he showed me his car. Perfection! My car needs a good polishing, and I'm considering using his method. The "Old School" part of me is saying that the clay bar omission step may make polishing a bit harder and take longer, but I'm "New School" enough to want to try anything once. So, waddaya tink? And did I mention an excuse to buy more MF towels? In the past, when drying my car after washing, I would use a Pakshak WW, followed by a Cobra Gold Jr. MF to buff. But I've noticed that the large size of the WW made it unwieldy. So I decided to try two Cobra Gold Jrs instead. Can you imagine how much easier it is to work with a 16" x 16" towel as opposed to a 16" x 27" WW? The only problem? Not enough MF's in my arsenal. Q: How does one sneak past an order of additional car care products without the wife knowing? A: You don't and can't. Women have a sense for such things. That's why they're called the "Significant Other" and we're called the "Insignificant Odor" ROFL! Happy Detailing, everyone! -Ross Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
