Spend the better part of 4 hours clay barring and waxing the focus today. It was way overdue. I also took the zx5 badge off, and I planed on taking the focus one off too, but the otherone didn't come off as easy as I thought it was going to so I'll do it next time. So here are the fruits of my labor, pics don't due any justice, maybe cuz my camera sucks, but you get the idea.

I just did the same but my 03 was horrible. it took me about 7-8 hours. Did you use a pre wax cleaner, plus a sealer, and finish it off with a wax. I did and dang talk about a mirror and it is turning some heads, leme tell you!![:D]

When you use clay bar you don't need a cleaner wax, it takes the place of a cleaner wax. I only clayed the hood, roof, front fenders, rear hatch and bumper. The front bumper is a mess so I usually don't even do anything to it. The clay is sold in a package with the bar and the lube. I used the one called clay majic in the black and blue box. It really easy to use and you can really feel the difference as your using it. After I did that I topped it off with 2 coats of eagle one nano wax. This stuff is amazing, it's leave a deep rich sine and it's so smooth.

I think your car is really nice. I was just curious. I found that the precleaner helps if you use it before the bar. It saved me some time. My car was a mess. Tar Sap Bug gut marks. Almost like brail LOL! I like Eagle one too! The sealer help with filling in the fine scratches, but it was the Mother's system that I used.

My car has never been claybarred. After seeing your pics and countless others I think it's time for me to do it.
