Re: question about oxidation (i searched) really could use some help (Crew)

clay bar is this like "dough" that you rub on your car with this lubricant...Basically it removes any impurities that sits on your car's paint that conventional paint can not remove....Takes a long while to do...But its very well worth it...I have a mothers clay bar kit sitting next to me that i wanna use the next time i can...

Re: question about oxidation (Crew)

check the detailing forum for the best answers.
Clay baring isnt really gonna remove the oxidation. Your gonna want to use a true polish. If anything try Meguiars ColorX it will get out the oxidation and leave a polymer protectant on it. But most polishes really only work their best when used w/ a polisher like the PorterCable 7424

You can find mothers clay bar kit at autozone and most other auto stores. Around 15 bucks I think.
My dad is pretty oldschool, but he told me to claybar, use rubbing compound, and then a wax and polish layer. It worked great
