Takes forever, but well worth it. I usually dedicate an entire day to clay barring and waxing (I have a couple of beetles to do). Clay bar at least once a year is the best thing you can do for your beetle...well besides frequent washing and oil changesdigitalputty said:It makes the paint really really smooth. Better than the day you bought it! ... it takes of contaminates and yucky stuff - old wax, dead bugs (if you missed them while washing), tar .... However, it takes forever ... and, you HAVE to wax afterwards.
Thanks for the info. I'm heading out today to purchase Meguiar's Quik Detailer.manoverboard987 said:follow-up on the Quik Detailer-
i got some of tht sucky headlight sealer goop on the bumper when i hcanged out a headlight. I knew from experience Quik Detailer takes it off, so i went at it.
Man is that some nasty goop. as you're rubbing it, you think its gone but it just smeared some more.
anyhoo - thats not my point. eventually it all came off, and after i was done i wiped up the overspray. it just so happened that this little bit of spray had hit some dried on bugs (been there for more than 2 weeks). they came right off when i wiped it up.
conclusion: Quik Detailer is some awesome stuff - AND it doesnt eat wax. in fact, its made to help your wax in between waxings.
