Also, the clay bar probably doesnt work too well in the cold weather right?

Its supposed to be like 40* tomorrow and I have to wash the car outside. Im going to try and get it washed as quick as I can since its not very dirty. But I have a heated garage that I will pull it in to clay bar it. It will probably be around 60* in the garage. should this be fine? Should I put the clay in some warm water? Any tips?

60* should be fine. I would keep water away from the claybar, it will likely interfere with whatever lubricant you're using with it.

If it needs to be said, don't use water as a claybar lubricant.

Warm water can help if the claybar is freezing cold. Usually i just let is sit between my hands and keep kneading it. If you're in a 60* garage you're fine.

Paid $13 for this. Never tried ArmorAll before. But for 13$ for everything I couldn't pass it up.

And even that isn't that great. I only use Armor All on my quads wheels and plastics, all of it sucks for cars.

Since there's no wax in it, I'm not very worried about it. It's just wheel/tire cleaner, tire shine, tire sealant, dust guard, and window cleaner. I'm still looking for new wax.

Armor All stuff isn't terrible other than their interior dressing.

pictures of (some) the cars i detail.
http://razzi.me/PremierDetailingLLC?page=1

I need to take more before/afters. Especially on the detail I'm working on right now. 10 man-hours in, and all we've done is washup+interior. It's an 07 Trailblazer that was absolutely destroyed.. I've run 12 gallons of water through my extractor cleaning up the seats+carpets.

I love optimum. Opti-seal is mah ****. Put it on everything: my paint, my glass, my wheels, my face, etc.

Their detail spray is awesome, comparable to FK425 but doesn't smear to **** over sealants.

Poly-seal + Opti-Seal is a good combination for a AIO and a sealant only. Makes the car look like it's liquid all the time.

Yeah I've used opti-seal, not poly-seal though.

Think I'm gonna pick up some opti-coat 2.0 for my Jeep.
