I keep hearing mixed things on whether you should clay the star shield. Some people say yes some no and the manual says not to. But there is some grit that I know only a clay bar can remove. I just do not want to damage the shield by applying too much pressure.

No clay.

Starshield rips easily.


Wax the starshield! :clap:
You can clay it. No problems. If it can't withstand clay, how can it withstand the daily sandblasting it'll get on the road? Just make sure you use plenty of soap and water or quik detail. Then wax it.

Definitely can. I wouldn't use aggressive clay - I use mild. I also polish/glaze/wax it with my porter cable buffer. Makes it look great!

Why search when there's Ace10 especially if you have touring wheels (countdown to Tim...10, 9...)

But seriously, what is 13/42?

you can clay it - anytime you clay you should use a lubricant - mist bottle, if the clay feels "sticky" across the surface, you are not claying correctly!

paint protection films are soft - so you should clay soft and easy. paint finish are harder, as such you can clay more agressive.

i clayed every inch of my starshield - no problems, and then zaino 'd it as well.

use clay very very clean and lubricated - thats the secret
