Thats the point... A clay bar used with a spray removes all the contaminants from the surface. It probably would be good if you used one ralph.

Nice job! I am a believer that clay bar is the begining for a long lasting wax job. Looks good (276k?).

276000 miles. Still runs. Got a lifter problem i believe. Something makes it crap out at low idle.

What contaminants?! It rarely sees sun, and has been in a garage or parkade all its life. Always has 2 or 3 coats of wax on it. :p
As long as it doesn't remove too much clear coat, or oxidation, but I don't think I need it.

"What contaminants?! "

the car ever seen rain or roads or parked in the sun at work ? good chance it has them , youll be surpised how smooth the finish is when your done

case in point , moms 04 malibu maxx . first day we got it home i couldnt get over how smooth the paint felt to my hands , after one week it didnt feel like that anymore , even after i washed it . the car sits in the garage all day and onyl leaves the garage to run errands , maybe gets a total of 20 miles a week. but one freak rain storm ws enough to contaimate the paint . i always though it took years but it only takes weeks for the finish to start to deteriorate
