      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.

        Comments about Mothers California Gold Clay Bar System:

        This is yet another fantastic California Gold line product by Mothers. It includes two 80 gram bars of clay, a 16oz. spray bottle of Showtime Instant Detailer and a 15" square Microfiber towel.

        I find this product to be essential when taking a cars paint and making it as smooth as a sheet of glass, removing grim and dirt that you can feel but not see with your eyes. Not only does it make the paint smooth to the touch, it also preps the vehicles paint for polishes, glazes and waxes.

        I really like how you get the Microfiber towel included but I highly recommend having plenty more on hand prior to using this kit.

              Good value for the money but not the best clay bar I have ever used either. Bars aren't that big and at least for me they don't last that long. Product will remove normal oxidation, contamination and most surface stains that are not removed from a basic washing.

                  Don't do too large an area at a time, the spray will dry up on you. Make sure you do in the shade to help prevent this.

                        Works great, picked up a lot of dirt and grime that didn't come off with normal washing. Made my paint super smooth and was a great prep before waxing. Allowed the wax to go on smooth and made it easier to take off. Make sure you use enough spray so the clay doesn't stick to the paint. Afterwards finish with a good wax and your car will look amazing. The only downside is that the bar gets sticky and it can stick to your fingers but it comes off with a little soap and water. Overall, a great product that is worth the price.

                          can you buy just the clay or do you have to buy the whole kit?

                            I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

                            The clay bar may help but I can not say for sure how well it will help remove the sap, because I have not used this item to remove sap before.
