Are the places you called bodyshops or 'detailing' people?

 

He is a detailer.

 

 

 

I'm having my car done on Wednesday, everywhere I called said they clayed before using the compound...

 

I thought it a bit strange.

Are there any benefits to it?

 

 

more time in labour cost to you that why they will do it!

 

It's a fixed price, not per hour.

But you said "everywhere i called" ;)

 

It was every where I called... I didn't call any body shops though lol..

 

Body shops round here don't even do dent removal! Lol

The full process is:

 

Wash

Clay

Hard compound

Soft compound

Polish and wax

 

It's the first time the car is having it, the swirls are quite bad and there are light scratches behind the door handles and a large light scratch on the side, think its a branch scratch.

 

Debating wether ti get the engine bay done as well.

Has the car been clayed before?... The car is usually clayed prior to machine polishing to remove contamination embedded in/on your paint!

 

You would be surprised at what a clay bar would remove from the surface after pre wash & wash stages, if you skip the clay stage you would risk inflicting defects to the paintwork!
