Yesterday I got in a Porsche Boxster black that really looked pretty darn good when it come in the shop. That opinion ended quickly when I touched the car, it felt like sandpaper. Turns out the owner has to leave it outside and since the car was 4 years old he never clayed it. When I talked to him about clay he looked puzzled, doesn't suprise me that he didn't know what clay was, 90% of the people out there don't. I decided to give him a little demonstration on how clay works and what it does. I washed the hood, and took a piece of clay and did half of it. When the owner ran his had across the finish on both sides he could not believe the transition. Cars that are subjected to mother natures wrath need to be clayed more often, contaminants attach themselves to the finish and over time, they build up and what happens you get a rough finish. This is compounded when you dry the car, leaving these micro particles on the car acts like sandpaper when you dry creating swirls. Moral of the story, clay at least twice a year for garage queens, up to 4 times a year for outside cars. Gary
