No. It removes contaminants that are embedded within the clear coat. It does not remove the clear coat itself. (sure, after hundreds of applications it probably does, but any thing would)Originally posted by *GTSpeed*
My friend, whom I don't think is right, says that clay bars take off a layer of clear coat, thus producing a smooth finish. Is this true?!
I just used the Mother's Gold Clay Bar and it says specifically, "DO NOT USE WATER [instead of the lubricant they provide]."Piece of Work said:A time saving trick I have used is to start claying right after the final rinse on the vehicle. After claying, wipe the area with a microfiber towel. The remaining water provides enough lubrication and still gets the same results as if you used the lube.
