      This product pulled all of the grime out of my white paint. My car went from an off-white with darkish streaks to brilliant white. I washed and washed with little progress. This stuff made all the difference. I can't recommend more highly.

              I used this particular clay bar on my newley purchased 2008 Honda Shadow Aero 750. It had a neglected paint finish. The paint felt rough to the touch and was full of surface contaminants. This clay bar removed all the surface contamination from the gas tank and fenders and restored the paint finish to a very smooth surface. I then applied two coats of carnuba wax and the bike looked like brand new.

                Comments about Mothers California Gold Clay Bar System:

                Got a good deal on a left over 2013 model, but since it had been sitting out on the dealer's lot for over a year next to a busy road, there was all kinds of crud embedded in the paint. I tried polishing with my electric buffer, but it didn't do much. It removed a few particles, but most of it was still there.

                I had heard about clay barring for years, but it just sounded unbelievable. The concept of something like this removing embedded particles from paint without causing scratches seemed impossible.

                Well, I wanted my new car's paint to look and feel new, so I tried it on an inconspicuous area, and to my amazement it worked! Particles were gone, and no scratches. Within an hour I had the whole car done. Talk about simple and easy.

                So I'm sold. I'll be using this as needed from now on.
