yes, the other way is going to take up too much time and will be a headache.
I enjoy it now, but if I have to spend hours on one car every month, I will hate it.

The reason I ask is I've been using meguiars gold class soap & ultimate wax on my honda, since I bought it new. I did have it "paint corrected" by a pro, prior to this regimen.
I dont have any swirls or anything but I was claying the car today after washing it clean. There was a ton of crap embedded in the paint/remaining wax, that appeared on the clay bar. I really keep this car super clean. Its always spotless and waxed regularly.

For being a bit OCD in keeping the honda so clean, I am shocked at how much grime has accumulated while using a reputed pH neutral soap and a decent wax (IMHO).
EDIT: The maximum I have gone without re-waxing this car has been about 7-8 weeks.

So, should I be claying more than once in 6-8 months? Because pH neutral doesnt seem to clean away all the grime the car collects. And this is not the daily driver, mostly sits in a garage. Its only been driven about 5500 miles.

I am not looking forward to claying the camaro. That car has seen 10k miles in the past year and sits outside a lot more than the honda.
I used to LOVE gold class soap, until I realized it does leave its own film on the car. You want CLEAN/Safe use carpro RESET. not too strong and leave no film like gold class.

Glen, I'm using Collinite and I like it. But isn't it just a type of carnauba wax? I heard some call it a sealant.

It’s what they call a hybrid wax, meeting it it’s got some artificial polymers and it mixes them with carnuba, is the best thing to use in terrible winter weather where you’re going to use the car. I don’t use it , because it’s a bitch to buff off.
