If you run some between your fingers, you can feel its not smooth. Polish is meant for taking things out like small scratches, some contaminants, basically anything that isn't supposed to be there.BlackTigerSE said:No what i meant to say is...the claybar replaces your use of wax? Claybar= no need for wax...question is whats the polish for? extra shine?
Wax is a sealer. You always use it after polish since the polish makes a clean slate. A good waxing will go a very long way, prevent corrosion, makes washing easier and many more benefits. If claybar replaces anything, it would be the polish. If you want to be really through, I would claybar first to get the larger things, a good quality polish (I use it on a pneumatic polisher, way faster and easier) then buff it out with a microfiber towel. You can use swirl remover if you see the swirl marks. After that use a name brand wax (I seem to be liking Meguiars gold class lately) and you've done alot to prevent corrosion.
