If you've never used detailing clay, then you haven't seen your vehicle's true potential! The Pinnacle XMT Speed Clay Bundle safely removes paint impurities. Afterwards, light reflects evenly off every curve of your vehicle. Wax bonds better with the clean paint, and your vehicle feels silky smooth.
The Pinnacle XMT Speed Clay Bundle includes:
226 grams XMT Speed Clay
Pinnacle XMT Speed Clay rids your vehicle of impurities to create the cleanest possible paint finish. This flexible clay bar removes contamination that washing leaves behind, creating a smooth-as-glass surface in preparation for a flawless coat of wax. After using Pinnacle XMT Speed Clay, your vehicle will feel as smooth as glass and have an improved gloss. Your favorite wax or paint sealant will bond better with the paint, and it may even last longer.
12 oz. XMT Speed Clay Lube
Pinnacle XMT Speed Clay Lube is an ultra slick lubricant formulated specifically to enhance the performance of detailing clay. The lubricating spray blankets your vehicle in polymers and lubricating agents to prevent scratches. The water-based lubricants will not dry out or deteriorate the clay bar. A light mist of Pinnacle XMT Speed Clay Lube onto the clay bar before storage will keep the clay soft and supple.
2 Microfiber All Purpose Towels
Microfiber All Purpose Cloth is spun from an 80/20 polyester/polyamide blend, producing a highly refined microfiber. The microscopic polyester/polyamide fibers are split with a unique process that creates a “feathered” weave on one side for buffing and looped fibers on the other side, which are excellent for cleaning. This superior “feather” weave results in far greater absorption properties in a virtually lint free network of fibers.
The Pinnacle XMT Speed Clay Bundle is just as important to the health of the paint finish as it is to the appearance. Gritty particles that penetrate the paint are detrimental. Many of these particles are metallic. As they oxidize, the oxidation spreads throughout the clear coat. One tiny pinpoint of rust can turn into a large patch in months. Prevention is as easy as using the Pinnacle XMT Speed Clay Bundle twice a year.
First mist the paint with XMT Speed Clay Lube.
Rub the clay bar over the lubricated area until it glides freely.
On a clean vehicle, spray a 2 x 2 sq. ft. area with Pinnacle XMT Speed Clay Lube.
Gently rub Pinnacle XMT Speed Clay back and forth across the wet area. It will grab initially as it works to remove contamination.
When the clay bar glides easily, the paint is clean. Use a Microfiber Detailing Cloth to wipe the paint dry. If any clay residue exists, mist the paint again with Pinnacle XMT Speed Clay Lube and wipe dry.
Continue this process until you have clayed the entire vehicle. Remember to reshape the clay bar often to reveal a clean portion.
After claying, always apply a fresh coat of wax or paint sealant.
Wipe the paint dry with a soft, clean microfiber towel.
Tips for claying:
Always use a clay lubricant. Pinnacle XMT Speed Clay Lube allows Pinnacle XMT Speed Clay to glide over the paint easily, and it protects the paint from the fine particles being removed by the clay.
Use Pinnacle XMT Speed Clay on a clean vehicle. Prewash the vehicle to remove loose contamination so it doesn't "clog" the clay bar.
Use clay before polishing. If your vehicle is in need of polishing, clay first to remove any gritty particles. If you don't these particles will come loose during the polishing process and they'll become "accidental abrasives". They may leave swirl marks even if your polish doesn't.
Of course there's always an exception to the rule! If your vehicle is heavily oxidized to the point of paint coming off, polish before claying. The reason is that paint flakes will overload the clay, making it perform poorly.
Fold and refold the clay bar often. The beauty of Pinnacle XMT Speed Clay is that you can renew the clay over and over. When the clay appears dirty, fold it until you see clean clay. It's safe to keep using the same clay bar until it has no clean surface area left.
Use Pinnacle XMT Speed Clay up to twice a year. As long as your vehicle is waxed regularly, there's no need to clay more often.
