I need to purchase some clay polish and wax for personal use. The vehicle has a marine paint job it's an old jeep. Any tips?

I like Meguiar’s liquid cleaner/wax best for personal or professional use. It combines Kaolin clay and express wax, easy on/off, no powder residue, no streaking. I find it holds up for about two months here in Florida climate.

Waxing your car helps in protecting your car’s paint job by slowing oxidation and by creating a barrier against bird droppings and also makes the car look good by adding extra shine.

When it comes to clay, I've jumped on the bandwagon of "claymitts" or "clay wipes." They seem to do just as good of a job, if not better, and last much longer. You can get appx 50 cars out of one wipe or mitt.

@andrew I just bought a clay towel, I'll see how well it works this weekend.

@robert as always, thank you.

Make sure you break in the clay towel. Just spray your clay lube on the glass and move it across the glass aggressively for about a minute. The towels need to get the coating off the clay part before they work like they should.
