    Yeah I was having a laugh.....Mine has been clayed about 4 times now. First time was around 3 weeks from new. I find the body gets more crap on in a summer than winter. The wax holds winter dirt off but summer it gets covered in those little bits of amber shite. Clay removes that quite well. I haven't needed to polish yet because I keep a good layer of wax on.

    Yeah summers definitely the worst, i don't get as much time to detail my car these days so I use a sealant on the car, lasts months and keeps the crap off the car a little better

    Finally got to use my shampoo and then a coat of wax this morning the car looks really good , not bad for a quick clean but it was very cold out and just as I was finishing it started to hail so the last section of the roof was a little rushed .
    Roll on summer when I can give it a proper clean
