    Regular is fine if you are claying the car for the first time, there is no need to use the whole bar (cut in half) .Use a tar&Glue remover on the lowers / sill's, using t&g on these area's will clear most of the road tar and grime and will save you clay bar from getting wrecked .

    sonus clay bar with either poorboys lube or dodojuice bornslippy it is true what twiggy says but i have tried that method and just using water method and find using the poorboys or dodojuice makes it easier and helps with the clay bar lasting as it does not cause sticking as the water i found kept drying off.

    When polishing a car with a Rotary/DA use IPA (alcohol) to wipe down the panel to inspect the level of correction. IPA will brake down the oil's in the polish, it also saves time buffing off the polish after each pass . We buy IPA in bulk which needs to be diluted with water, it's a must have product.... Darren I can bring some to the meet on Sunday .

    claying only needs to be done twice a year, unless your about to machine polish the car otherwise it will ruin your pads. i only clay my car twice a year but dont do much mileage so it stays pretty clean. ive seen some serious contaminated panels and will ruin a bar asap

    IPA is not designed to clean the paint as such, it's job is to wipe off the oils after the polish has broken down when using a rotary or DA. If you hand polish your car (not seal or wax) you could use IPA after the polishing to wide the panel down before appling a glaze,sealent or wax.
