    Bill D - When you use Valuguard ABC, (is that 3 steps?), does this leave the paintwork as smooth and clean as when you use a claybar properly?

    Hi Dan

    Yes, it`s 3 steps and yes it can leave the paint very smooth. However if you determine the paint is quite contaminated to begin with, I`d suggest using clay during step B. I never had to do this though. I understand B can eat clay so have plenty on hand to do this step.
    Treat it like it`s the only one in the world.

    Same experience here, though I *have* had to either clay or use the VG/AI "bug pad" (or whatever they call it) when the contamination was really bad. As noted, it destroys the clay in one hot minute.
