Rough in what sense? Where? All over the place or a particular area? New car or 2nd hand?

Clay bar after washing should be able to smoothen the paint surface.nod.gif

Followed by a sealant for protection.thumbsup.gif

I oso used to be like u, wax, sealant frequently but body still rough. Tried claybar n the smoothness is back. Come to tink of it, I dont even recall that kind of smoothnees since the day 1 of owning the car. [mad]

 

The critical or more promiment areas would be the roof, bonnet and front.

 

And from the knowledge gain from this forum, do apply a layer of sealant or wax once ur done with the claybar.

 

Btw, how's the authentic gold wax on ur ride? I oso got the same. No $$ to get the premium one, maybe should not save on that... [rolleyes]

[idea] correct! i got the same prob as you! mostly on the horizontal surfaces only.

 

i heard claybar need alot of skill and water, if not will end up scratching your own car.. how true?

 

if wash, claybars, then wax.. i [dizzy] liao.. [laugh]

For ur 1st attempt try on a small portion 1st, a small corner of ur roof. Slowly moving on to the whole panel and whole car. But if u want veri good results, I would suggest that u only do 1 panel at a time so that u can perfectly smoothen it.

 

My 1st attempt was not so good as I was applying way too little strength and doing it too quickly and too little times on the affect areas. And on my subsequent attempts, I begin to enjoy it as the surface feels so smooth like "a [gorgeous] tigh" [laugh]

 

I didnt see much swirl marks on my ride, maybe cos I oredi apply polish n wax thereafter or maybe cos car color too light cant really see....

 

For u better do it carefully if not very obvious, blackie rite?
