    Hi guys what clay bars are you guys using? My car isnt that bad just a little bit rough. I used to use dodo juice clay with born slippy. I still have the clay lube left but no clay so im looking for another one also a good wax to go over auto finesse tripple 3
    any recommendations?
    Also photos of a clean speed blue fr/cupra would be nice to see what it might turn out like

    Thanks

    Cheers. I've just switched over to autofinesse and really like their products. I use triple (but not all the time as it's abrasive). If I don't use Triple, I use ultraglaze instead. Then wax with Collonite if I have time. Poorboys Natty blue if I don't. Clay bar wise I use the bilt hamber one, but haven't for a while (too busy).

    I use Meguiars Clay bar and G3 quick detailer as lube, also used the G3 clay mitt which work better than I expected.

    Wax wise I’ve got heaps but my go to is torn between in2detailing ceramic crystal coating wax which is great value and obsession wax phantom v2 which is very good is a little bit more pricey.

    I almost bought one of them from Halfords a couple of weeks back, but was worried cause I'd read a few negative reviews about leaving scratches.

    I think if you're careful they are okay, I tend to check mine frequently for pickup. Its not as satisfying to use as a clay bar though!
