Sounds like a good idea to me, nothing better than spending the weekend doing a bit of polishing.

There's a detailing section on the 350z-uk forum and I learned a great deal from everyone discussing various methods and products. Plus before and after pics are great

Most people suggest a lubricant with clay. I just use soapy water which does the same job at a fraction of the price

Once you've clayed it you won't be able to keep your hands off it lol

Wash with a good wax free shampoo. Then clay while wet. Then wash again, Dry with Micro fiber or similar , polish then Wax. Cut windows with window polish.

Thanks for the tips guy's. I'm going to go and get a good make of Clay and know that I am totaly wasting my time because it will pisss it down and the gritters will be out again very soon.
At least I'll be able to stand back and admire it before I drive it again lol

My work mates used to take the piss out of me because I was always polishing my bikes, they used to say that they could small my bike coming..

It's a good idea to have a detailing thread. Post up plenty of pictures of your handy work when recomending a product or method and maybe if you know where to get a good price on something then spread the word:)

^^^ i don't think there is any real need too go out buying expensive clay as it "seems" to be a waste of money. Cheap Chinese (auto magic) clay or Bilt Hamber clay is supposed too be good,

I also read that artists moulding clay is good too but unsure how true that is :)
