All I can say is simply "amazing!" My Celica hasn't felt that smooth since I drove out of the dealership's parking lot. I purchased the Meguiar’s clay kit (included everything you needed). I've always been meticulous about keeping my car clean -- but I was always scared away from clay b/c I was worried about scratching my clear coat... But I bit the bullet, and I'm glad I did!

I was so happy with the turn out that I decided to clay my wife's '00 Civic.. I've never seen her car look better (she bought it used at Honda).

I'll give it a bath and post up some pictures this weekend... But I just wanted to give clay barring a big thumbs up for people that were like me. :bigthumbu

Yeah that stuff works really well.................i used it couple months ago well i pay someone to have my car detailed they used the clay bar and the car look as if i just got a new paint job.....for a car that is almost 20 years old that stuff worked great.

I used to do that with my old 4th gen. It was always a beautiful sight to behold.

these days, I can't hardly be bothered to even wash my car. the body and paint are in pretty bad condition, and were when I bought the car. Like, beyond topical repair.

So I just let it fester and maintain cancer spots when necessary until I can justify the expense to have it all taken care of.

I'm a DIY kinda guy, but when it comes to body work, I'd rather it be handled by a professional.

Clay bars are AMAZING for what they do. A little pricey for a wad of "clay", but worth it :)

My car is due this spring.
