I ordered everything but the PC, which I plan to buy this week. While I'm waiting for it to come in, I'm gonna do a regular wash and feel for contaminants with a plastic baggie. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna need to clay, though. I watched some PC videos and read some tutorials. I have some quick questions though:
1. When using OPS with a PC, is it important to tape off trim and weatherstripping?
2. I'm planning to debadge some of it, but how close to the remaining badges should I try to get with the PC.
3. I saw some overlapping buffing patterns that seem suitable for larger areas, but when it comes to smaller/thinner area like between the window and windshield do I just hit it back and forth a couple of times?
4. Is one bar of clay gonna be enough to do a full sized truck? I get the concept of reshaping, but I'm still worried about dragging stuff back across the paint. I'm not sure that I'll know the difference between needing more lube/reshapping, and needing a new bar of clay. In my mind it would seem that when you reshape, some of the stuff is gonna come back to the top no matter what.
