Hi, Quick Question. Just purchased my second Kuga, ex demo less than 150miles on the clock. I found out that it had previously been stored outdoors for 6 months in Liverpool. No beading on paintwork despite car being practically 'new'. Should i use a clay bay to get any contaminants off or is this overly harsh for fresh paint. Will a Wax protection do the job?

I feel the need to bead.

And for Magnetic I can HIGHLY recommend Dodo Juice Purple Haze as a (Carnauba) wax. 'Unleash your vehicles dark side'.

Everyone else has hit the nail on the head here really, clay -> polish -> wax is the way to go :) You got any photos?

There seems to be some confusion here, because polishing is a removal process, clay is a cleaning process, and waxing is a protective method. One does not replace the other, and each one has different goals and methodologies. However, they can be used in unison, if the car needs cleaning (clay), then if it needs polishing -possibly due to aging- (polish) and then waxing for added protection.

Did my first clay bar a few months ago and was well pleased with it.

Wax after every second wash now.
