Hi Mike.

My favorite item is clay. I use Griott’s and their speedshine. I like how smooth the paint feels afterward so I clay it every time I wash. I wondered about paint wear from the clay and Griott’s said that when used with the speedshine lubricant there should be no wear.

Thanks.

David,

Griot's Garage is correct. Paint Clay merely serves the purpose of removing contaminants that are embedded or lying on the clear coat. It skims away and collects the contaminants, leaving the surface silky smooth. Clay is often misunderstood, mainly because people assume that since their vehicle's surface feels smooth, It's needs nothing after that. In reality, Paint Clay is the one of many steps in a paint correction or polishing process. If Paint Clay seems to time consuming, look into the Nanoskin Autoscrub series of products. They've been in the market for a little over a year and they clean better than traditional clay and have versions that can be used in the wash process. We use the Nanoskin Autoscrub to remove paint overspray and other contaminants that can't be removed with traditional paint clay. Check out my video review of this product at:

Hi Mike. Have you tried the chip paints? I've had relatively good experiences with Dr Color Chip. The paint matches exactly. It's a lot of work but the results look better than when I started. What I've found is that the depth of the chip can still be seen and it also seems that the area of the chip is prone to be chipped again. Thanks. David

Hi Mike, the Nanoscrub pad sounds like a great gift idea for the December 13, 2015 holiday gift exchange at the Columbia Club Harrison Room!  Maybe Sweet Cars can donate a sample for the gift exchange!  Thanks for the tip.  I always hated the clay process because of the time and labor.  This new mit sounds great; I can combine the washing and the claying in the same stage!  --Manny
