My first ever clay experience!

Recommended Posts

I've been meaning to give this a go for ages, and as Halfords are doing a promotion on clay kits (plus 15% off with the gold members card)  I gave it a go today.  I have to say, I've never felt car paint so smooth!  The whole process, with waxing, took about 3+ hours.  I almost had a Narcissus moment as I saw myself so clearly in the reflection!💎

and now comes the rain !!!!

It did look like rain when I did it but it passed over.  I'm told (by the manufacturer) that it'll be a little easier to clean now.  Hmm.⛈️🌧️

Try chemical guys blackllight nano protectant and then spritz with their hypno v70 after washing to enhance the gloss. 

Saves loads of time and effort and looks great all year round especially in heavy rain when the water just rolls off 💦💦

I was really surprised at the colour coming off the roof in particular, even after washing.  I thought about some photos but the feel of the paint is what impressed me, I'm not even sure if a babies seating quarters compare!

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
