    Clay Bar - How long ?

    ....Does it last ? I've got a Yaris and a Zafira to sort out over the next few months and was wondering if I could do both with one clar bar or should I use a fresh claybar per car???

    Obviously I've never done this before

    Break the clay bar into thirds, you should be able to do both cars with the one bar then depending how bad they are.

    As for how long it lasts, I normally clay every 6 months
    Gaz

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    i'v used claybars a fair bit on a number of diffrent cars, i'd say that although the bar may last over 2 cars(and the zafira has alot of surface area to clay) thats if you spend a long time washing beforehand, the spray lube you need to use to make sure you arnt just dragging lumps of dirt across your polish and scratching it will only last for 1 car.
    make sure you get extra layers of polish on and extra gloss coat protection as soon as your cars dry after claying, that way it should last for a good few months.
    Astra: Drive it like you stole it.

    Air tight container helps once used and lubricate slightly before packing away....Once clay bar has been turned a fair few times and its dirty then keep it as your glass/wheel clay.
