First wash on new juke

Post by Mangaman » Sun Oct 12, 2014 9:22 am

I'm picking up my new 1.2t tekna next weekend..ordered 15th July so should be sorted over engine issue.

I've gone mad buying cleaning products for 1st wash and wondered if I should clay a new car or will it be a waste of time?

I've got clay bar and halfords g3 clay mitt which is a wonder product by all accounts.
I'm washing with 2 bucket method with grit guards and will wax car after.

Any thoughts guys?Mangaman2014-10-12 09:24:18

Have a very close look at the paint and see if it necessary, depends if there is any contaminants still on it afters its been prepped for pick up.From your other posts, i believe it is a black one your getting so would be extremely difficult to see any of these anyway.What wax did you get?

I would use a product like tardis and then iron x and then run clay over too before polish and wax

Cheers for replies.
I'm thinking prep car for winter and want good first clay,wax ect as good base as I'm not sure what a dealer does to car before handing over...guess just a Hoover and wash.

I've got collinite 845 wax and also ArmorAll shield.both top in auto express tests and good reviews.

I'm a bit scared of claying ect as never done it.ill practice on girlfriends black fiesta lol

Get a G3 clay mitt - a lot easier. I have never clayed but the mitt was a doddle.

I've always dropped the bar on the floor so that's put the car washers on that!!

The mitts or cloths can be washed out if dropped

Anyone not sure about claying or detailing a car then watch Auto Obsessed videos on youtube. They are very good and simple to follow. This is their video on clay:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-JsTNAV9Z8
