Considering it took me 3 hours just to wash and clay my truck, I have to wonder either if you didn't spent enough time claying your truck, or if I'm just doing it all wrong.

He also has a brand new truck, so it probably didn't require that much of the clay bar at all.

I was gonna do mine this weekend, but there are storms coming, so I'll just let the rain do the work...

Can't wait to see pics blckout!

I've only waxed my truck, and i've never used clay bar. (I know it was a bad idea to wax). So what's the proper way to clay bar and wax? (I know that question was pretty broad)

I rub the clay-bar in one area until the "scraping" sound goes away.. it takes a while! Well, I do that on the "reflective" areas.. the hood, the top of the fenders, the bedrails, etc. I spend less time on the non-reflective areas like the door sills, bottom of the front valance, rear bumper, etc.

I use a regular Mother's Claybar, not the Zaino one. I only use the Zaino polish and spray.
