I use the one from Maguire's. It comes with a bottle of quick detail used for lubrication. Follow the directions and don't drop it on the ground.

I prefer the Mother's clay system. Meguires leaves streaks of clay that you have to clean off with a towel. I've used both many times.

We use clay magic in the paint shop. Comes in different grades for lighter/heavier
oversprays/ contaminents.Works great !. Don't spare the spray lubricant,kneed the clay well while working it.

Napa / Martin Senour works good. Like everybody said DONT DROP IT. Also, don't skimp on the lube, & do not do this in direct sun. If the metal is warm / hot to the touch....blow it off

Clay Magic is fucking awesome. I 2nd that. These dumb motherfuckers here at my apt complex painted the buildings one day when it was windy and my whole car got overspray, it felt like sand paper. I got that shit, clayed it, waxed it( 2 coats) and it came out smooth as butter. Heres a picture. Oh and I used basic Turtle Wax to wax it as well.

Yeah thats a pain in the ass to get the wax dust out of emblem crevices. I was gonna use a toothbrush, but thats too rough on the paint.

You can find it at any Autozone. Its relatively cheap. Like 20 bucks for the kit.
