five gumbies for clay bar

Tried the waxoyl lubricant spray and clay bar wash today, and finished it off with the waxoyl polymer sponge (good for 100 washes?). Curiosity got the better of me, after reading a thread on it.

Here are my impressions:

1. If the truck is too dirty, give it a quick light wash first, let dry.
2. Pour the lubricating lotion into the provided spray bottle, and unwrap the clay bar (green).
3. Spray a very light mist on one section of vehicle. (3x3' section) a little will do ya.
4. Take clay bar in hand and rub in circular motion. The warmer it gets in the hand, the more the bar molds to the shape of each section.
5. Rub with light to moderate strength, harder on stubborn road grime.
6. You will feel when the surface starts gliding, you will see dirt, wax,even overspray etc. come out of the paint.
7. You will feel when the surface is too dry, spray more lube.
7. Wipe off each section after rubbing with a clean dry cloth.
8. Wipes off to a creamy paint shine easily.
9. Once done buff lightly all around the truck, be surprised. Neverseen the truck that clean and creamy.
10. no real residue, and any wipes off easy.
11. To the polymer sponge.
12. Pierce the yellow side of sponge three times with sharp object. (knife)
13. Sponge has an internal sac that contains the polymer.
14. This stuff glides on VERY easily. Do the whole truck in five minutes. Make sure the stuff is coming out.
15. Let the stuff dry to a haze.
16. Buff off with clean dry rags/towels, haze wipes off VERY easy.
17. Black parts unaffected by stuff, wipes off completely, even the wheel fender flares.
18. Use it all over the cage, brilliant and leaves no white residue.
19. Use it on the bumper, and cross member, no residue.
20. Stand back and admire.

Conclusion: Cleanest, smoothest finish I have ever seen. Best product I have ever used, goodby to wax marks on black. (thank God!)

Wife saw me do the clay thing, and thought it was an odd way of washing a car. When she saw the result of one section, she ripped my clay bar in half, and made off with the rest of the lube to work on her car.
When she came back, she made a Gumbie out of the clay bar and said " it's like washing with Gumbie!"

Sounds good. I was reading about using clay the other week.

Might give it a try

Where do you buy that stuff? Sounds kinda like the snake juice they sell in the back of the exposition room at the Auto Show right next to the anti-fog wax and salsa maker booth. Just kidding. I'd probably want to paint my D before I start polishing the paint. I should get started on those dents first.....
