Richard's Top 3
Surface Prep Tips


Reduce clean up. Synthetic clay won't leave behind residue around emblems or the edges of protective films, saving you time and effort.


Work in small sections. Limiting your work area allows you to better focus your efforts. Using the same crosshatch pattern we recommend for Random Orbitals will also pay dividends during surface prep.


Pretreat the tough stuff. If you have a heavily contaminated surface, use Iron & Fallout Remover to eliminate deeply embedded contaminants before moving to a mechanical surface prep product.
