Never been clayed.
Paint is 12 yrs old, car only saw 3000 miles since painted, garaged and covered the whole time. Only seen water once, it usually just gets dusted off and quick detailed, waxed almost as often as driven. Paint was slicker than polished teflon prior to the overspray.
I need to do the rest of the Focus though, it has lived outside all ten years of it's life.
