By popular demand, here’s a tutorial on how to clay and wax your car, by pre-eminent specialist, Allison Sheridan of the NosillaCast Podcast. Her credentials basically are that she’s obsessed with car waxing and has been known to voluntarily wax the cars of complete strangers’ cars, especially if they are the nieces of famous actresses. Lest you think I’m joking, I have a Flicker set called “Cars I have Waxed” at flickr.com/photos/nosillacast.
Let’s get started. Below you’ll find a lovely video explaining exactly how to go through the entire process. Following the video you’ll find links to the products I use so you can rush out and buy them after you’re overwhelmed with enthusiasm from watching the video!
Here’s links at Amazon to the products I use – but remember you can buy them at any auto parts supply store.
Meguiar’s Car Wash at Amazon.com
Mother’s Clay at Amazon.com (remember to throw away the little bottle of wax, it’s awful!)
Meguiar’s Cleaner Wax at Amazon.com or if your car isn’t too faded, Meguiar’s Carnauba wax
