Clay Barred

Good morning folks. I took a clay bar to my RRE which is white with black roof. I.have clayed cars before but wow what a difference on white. The side of the car was covered in small tar and yellow spots and the tailgate was really bad. The car has only done 23K miles so I was surprised at how grubby it was is this normal?
I guess the marks are on all cars just highlighted with the white.

RE: Clay Barred

Great work, it good to hear more RRE owners looking after there paint work.
Try the bag test? Place your hand inside a plastic freezer bag & using your finder tips, run your hand over the paint work.

Have you used Tardis (Tar remover) & ironx (fallout remover). These two steps will remove most of the contaminators from the paint work before using a clay bar, which saves time & the amount of clay needed.

RE: Clay Barred

Well done, yes the white shows these contaminants very easily, look closely at the rear tailgate 2 weeks later! you'll be surprised, I can only add, try Clay Cloth's, you'll never clay bar a car again! So much easier.

gTechniq now also do Iron and tar removers... "W6" and "W7" if I remember correctly, excellent products too!

Yes without it your scratch the hell out of the paint. Some of the clay mits can be used with running water, I would check first.

Indeed, always use a lube with Clay Bar/Cloths/Mitts.
