    Using a claybar is a VERY important key to detailing your car and Also preparing Your car for paintwork correction.

    Think your car is Clean? Try using a Clay Bar on your car and you will know the term "Smooth as Glass" :thumbsup:

    Here are 2 videos that explain this very well. The first one I like because its simple. The second video explains Alot more and is hosted by one of the best detailers in the world, Mike Phillips.

    So Handz, I got a suggestion for you. How about a single thread that has a video for each step of detailing a car, in order, in detail, so we dont have to kinda guess which order to do it in. I think that would be pretty cool of you to do if you had a chance. I know you've been posting a lot of videos of detailing, but it would be cool to have a step by step thread I guess.

    Can't wait for the patent to run out so the market can bring back the elastic clay.

    Won't have to go across the border Optimum, PB, Pinnacle, ect will bring back there elastic clay (basically what Ricardo clay is). I still have a few bars left of the stretchy stuff.
