I used to detail cars years back, and I do agree that clay is one of the best things you can do for your car. The areas most affected are your horizontal panels (not so much your side panels).

However, what he didn't mention is that you are supposed wash your car and take off the existing wax/sealant prior to using the clay bar. Also, I don't agree on how he says to knead the clay. Instead, you should fold it inwards each time and squeeze the clay out larger again, so that you always have clean clay surface to work with.

If you guys have any questions regarding auto detailing or products to use, let me know.

I'll be stripping, claying, and waxing the wifes new car Saturday morning. A clay bar has always been a valuable tool in my detailing arsenal.
