How to Use a Clay Bar Paint Care and Preparation - Meguiar's Car Care Series Step 2 of 5

Added by Wolf1
Step 2 of the paint care process is cleaning and prepping the paint for waxing/polishing. After the washing and drying, we need to evaluate the paint finish by feeling for a rough surface. As time passes your cars paint gets rough due to above surface bonded contaminates which inhibits gloss and shine. The second part of the evaluation means you are looking closely at the paint surface for any swirl marks or oxidation.

To remedy these problems you need 2 separate products: a clay bar which is designed to remove the above surface contaminants and a product like ultimate compound which will remove oxidization.

This paint cleaning and prepping step is vital to allowing your polishes and waxes last longer. Always use a product designed for Modern Clearcoats.
