Thanks for the suggestions, guys. I haven't tried anything at all yet. If Vinegar alone does the job that would be great.

Are those matte paint jobs just single stage paints?
carizzma color paint with basf flat clear coat. basf also has a semi flat but I havent actually seen a comparison between their flat and semi flat clear coats.

wait a minute.

wash-clay-wash? is the second wash necessary? I thought you could just go into polishing/waxing right after clay.

Whoo look at those rock chips! Thanks for the detail Dave. I highly recommend brew, he did a great job, taught me some new things, and I enjoyed spending the day with him. And he owns a beautiful skyline. Thanks Dave!

Hey Dave or anyone else,

what kind of clay do you use? I'm in the market for some new clay, not sure which brand to buy. Normally, I buy Griots products, but I'm open to change.

Any input on cost versus quantity/quality?

Devin
