    Does this take the place of the old video with Mike Phillips in it? I assume this is to fit in with the Quik Tips Video Series.

    Yes, Shane, this would be our "new, official" Quik Tips Video on claying. Not that much has changed in the process of claying over the years, but if we were going to produce this series this was just a very obvious topic to include.

    Gotcha. That's kinda what I figured - this video just seemed to be structured the way the new videos are, whereas the old one wasn't. Great video though - very easy to understand.


    On a side note, I doubt that a piece of clay dropped on your floor would need to be tossed - I bet that floor is clean enough to eat off of!

    Great video. I also remember the first time I clayed. I broke the claybar in two just in case I dropped it. lol

    I was surprised they said to use the entire piece of clay. I know the benefit of breaking it up (in case you drop it), but is there a down side to using a smaller piece?

    Maybe taking longer than it would when using a larger piece. That's the only downside I can think of.

    Our original clay kit shipped with a single 100g bar of clay and we instructed buyers to tear that bar in half before use.

    Our current kit ships with 2 x 50g individually wrapped bars, so we've essentially already torn it in half for you. Going much smaller than this leaves you with an awfully small bar to work with so, as with anything, there are tradeoffs. Just how small of a bar do you want to work with, and just how small of a bar is still effective and convenient to work with?

    Re: Meguiar's Quik Tips Video Series - Claying

    Thanks for the video. I just clayed for the first time this past weekend and ended up breaking them into MUCH smaller pieces luckily - I dropped 3 of them! Damn vertical panels!

    Pretty sure the car has never been clayed before (just bought it used, 2008), so is it normal for the clay to stick in places? I used TONS of lube - Went through the whole bottle and didn't even finish the car.

    Also there were little pieces that wouldn't come off with the clay, but little pieces of the clay would get caught on it. I had to use my fingernail the remove most of them and then go over again with the clay, is that okay? Should I just spend a lot more time on them with the clay?

    Should I be doing smaller, 2x2 areas like polishing or can I do the whole half of the hood like in the video?

    Thanks for any help guys.
