Re: clay barring recommendations

Over the summer I used Mothers' Speed Clay 2.0 on my Cobalt and I was pretty happy with it. It's not moldable like a clay bar, but for the larger, unconfined areas it worked really well. I'll definitely use it again in the future, probably in conjunction with a good clay bar for the tight spots it can't get into.

I wrote several posts about the entire detailing process, but these two address my work with the Speed Clay:

Clay Barring the Cobalt SS

Day 6: More Clay Barring for the Cobalt

Hope that helps!

Re: clay barring recommendations

The Mothers Speed Clay 2.0 is another tool I knew nothing about. I guess it is not sufficient for tight areas. So I have a couple of those bug sponges. What is the product you use with those?

I used GreaseMaster on the bug pad. However, it isn't as good as clay and won't remove all the contaminants.

You can follow the link above to see a review I did of the stuff about 13 years ago and you can buy it directly from the manufacturer:

Personally, when I clay bar again, I'll go with an actual moldable clay bar for the tighter areas and use the Speed Clay on the larger areas to keep from using up the clay as quickly as using it for the whole body would.

The GreaseMaster and bug pad just worked for me by accident because I was using it to remove bugs, tar, and built up organic material from the body so that I could get to the washing. It had been something like two years since I'd washed the car and it was bad.
