    Re: Meguiar's D1801 Professional Wheel & Paint IRON DECON

    A question on the decontaminating process -

    It's my understanding that most people use an iron remover like D1802 then follow it up with a clay bar. I have always been under the impression that clay, by its nature, will at least somewhat mar your paint (which is why you would polish after).

    How necessary is the clay step after using D1801? If it's a situation where the spray will get you 80-90% of the way there, I would probably be fine taking the time savings of not claying, but if there's a lot it adds, I'd just bite the bullet and do it...

    A decon step is still not a replacement for clay. Definitely still recommended. Remember decon only removes iron type deposits.

    Thanks, Nick! Clay it is, then.

    My 2 biggest wants for Meguiars products at the moment are a "consumer" size version of D1802 and some kind of synthetic clay mitt, as they make the process so much easier. But I am happy using what is available now!
