In short No - Its a slow job but so worth it. I was really scared about doing Chilli the first time but Phil K kindly 'held my hand' the first time i did & was shocked how easy it was & why i made so much fuss Wink Razz

As long as you use loadddddddddddddddddddds of lube & some more youll b fine. Keep needing the clay in ypur hand & keeping an eye on the dirt not rubbing over the paint work you'll b fine. There is normally some resistance when wiping the clay bar over the panels as you remove the dirt & you want it to glide over the paintwork b4 you move one.

If i can do on chilli once & her sister since then i am sure you can do

Once youve done once, youll b fine & wonder like me why you were so scared Razz

Dawn has summed up the claying to a tee. as for wax the one I used said apply small circular motion allow to dry 10-15 mins then buff off with a micro fibre cloth, I'm not sure if all wax should be applied that way. I used auto glym hd wax very impressed with it.

rich I'll do yours at a cost lol!

Looks great Neil. I use that HD wax too. Seems to last and last and is quite easy to use.
