Ok so I tried some of that clay stuff on the hood of my car. It did make it shiney but unfortunately I dont think there isn't much of the black paint left on the hood anymore. It is smooth as hell in the portion I tried though. I gave up after like 45 min working on the same 24" area with no black paint returning. It was a good idea but it's a few years to late I think.
I have some pics of the hood preclay and the clay I used on this site http://picasaweb.google.com/exilionp...16375681728530
