I would suggest claybarring before buffing. Gets all the impurities out of the paint.

Definitely clay bar first. The easiest clay bar system which is not really a clay bar is the Ultima system. That's what I use along with their sealant.

Yeah I know for sure it needs a good claying. I'll have to do that when the weather isn't so crappy (raining right now). I have a lot of Griots products, including the clay system and sealant. I need to order a few more products from them as their stuff!

Personally I like Meguiars clay better. The only Griots product I use is the spray-on wash in my door jambs.

I love and was browsing their site and came across this article. I really want to try the Detailer's Paint Coating...I might just man up and buy it. Here's the article:

I've bought a lit of stuff on autogeek. I clay with Meguiars and have Zaino coatings on both of my cars. AIO on my Journey and Z5 and Z2 on the M.

I always used a Meguiars claybar till I bought my setup from Zaino. All clay is not made equally, the Zaino clay is far superior.

I just ordered this stuff...I've read lots of good things about it and it was the cheapest coating system I could find: ... ystem.html
For under $50 you get pretty much everything you need, and I already have 2 kinds of clay kits. I plan on putting 2 coats on and hopefully it'll work wonders through winter months. I can't wait to try it!

Which Zaino products do you guys use? I bought like everything when I got my Challenger and followed their instructions. I had to mix something with a catalyst and put on like ten coats over a couple days. It looked awesome, but I'm thinking there might be a simpler approach that gets me most of the way there.

I've just washed my 300 and haven't done anything more than that since I bought it. I want to clay it and then do Zaino before parking it for the winter, but don't want to go as crazy as I did the last time.

I follow this as closely as I can. None of the catalyst crap needed.

There is some other stuff mixed in for full show prep but all the Zaino products are listed and the order to use them is listed as well. It is a great list!
