its super easy, just time consuming thats all.
just shape the clay into a 4" flat circle, mist the spray on the truck and glide the clay over the paint. Wipe off the detailer with a microfiber cloth after. Its a good idea to wax the truck after you clay bar.

One thing to keep in mind if you drop the clay on the ground throw it out. So i would advise only using half the clay at a time.

I'd also recommend wearing latex gloves while you're claying. I've never used Mothers, but I use Griot's and that stuff stick to you hands like crazy, and its a mother to get off. Also be careful around any emblems or decals, because it will catch on any edges. God luck-I swear by this stuff and you won't believe the difference it makes!

No problem with my clay kit sticking to my hands. Make sure your hands are clean though or the clay bar will pick up all the dirt on them. I normally mist my hands with the QD before hand just to get them to work the clay a little easier anyway.

Its amazing how many people don't know about clay barring, it makes such a huge difference.
