My C220 was off the road for 15 months and I'm sorry to say I ignored it. Now it's back on the road I T-Cut it with one of the coloured variants and she's now beautiful again.

Should I now cover it with any other polish as I'm not sure whether T-Cut acts as a barrier as well as a cutter:Oops:

A good coating of a quality wax ..especially one that contains carnauba wax will help protect the finish.. T cut is only an abrasive cleaner ..

What exactly is clay bar? Is it instead of wax or as well as wax.

+ 1 from me. :cool:

I used to clay bar my BMW E36 Convertible and the result was amazing.

It was a very dark/deep midnight (Montreal) blue and the results of a few hours hard work with the clay bar etc was outstanding.

Clay bar is used to remove the paint contamination and if it is followed with quality Wax, the results can be very very pleasing.

T cut must always be followed with a wax coating. When you T cut the paint it actually cuts a thin layer of paint hence open for damage which then needs to be protected with a wax coating
