Default Claybar and Black Box wax *PICS*

Claybarred the car, then used the Turtle Wax Black Box wax kit...its essentially a pre-wax cleaning polish and liquid carnauba wax, all of it tinted black. Surprisingly it turned out pretty good.

looks great.

just curious, on a practically new car why would any good outcome of a clay/polish/wax job surprise you?

Well, for us, the last year has seen a little neglect towards the car, we went through selling a house, living in an apartment, and just moving into a new house...in that time frame the car had gotten some pretty bad bird sh*t stains, and a few scratches from the apartment.

The claybar really helped with the bird excrement and the prewax polish actually got the scratches out. So in our particular case it worked well.

However I do agree, that a claybar shouldn't always be necessary on a new car with clear coat protectant.

I used the same and to tell you the truth there was very noticeable difference and my car was new as well.So i was more than surprised myself as to how it came out.I have had questions on the longevity of the black box wax kit,i have a friend who has had it on his car for 3 months and it still looks great and beads water like crazy.
I think claying a new car is important because once it is assembled,it just sits outside,usually in a big city.Lots of fallout,pollution and elements.Also transporting can leave a lot of contamination,not only from the elements but dust from the train brakes.Also it gave me a chance to really get a good look at the whole car overall.
