    Claying

    Hi i'm new to this detailing buisness. I was reading an earlier post that suggested "wash, clay, wash, polish then wax" so i've ordered some chemical guys maxi suds II, super fine poly clay, autoglym super resin polish and some collinite 476. But reading the starters guide to detailing clay it says i need to lubricate the surface with quick detailer spray. Is this the same as the polish or do I need to buy something else?

    No quick detailer is a liquid spray very different to polish.

    You have 2 choices really, buy some quick detailer, around £8-10
    or
    Get an empty spray bottle, put a small amount of car shampoo in it and fill with water. Will work just as well as QD for a lubricate, but a lot cheaper.

    Gaz's top tip;

    if you want to save even more money on your clay lube, go to Asda and buy some of their smartprice shampoo. It's 79p for a litre and makes good clay lube

    Max 1 capful to a litre bottle because it will break the clay down and go mushy.....
