Our ’68 Valiant had an SS-1 paint code, telling us that our aging single-stage repaint was the original Sunfire Yellow. While there are a few dozen chips and minor surface rust spots peppering the Valiant, the repaint was deemed salvageable by Jeppesen. His first move was to use the Mothers Clay Bar System on it. After washing and drying the paint, spay a small section with the included Mothers Showtime Detailer (used as a lubricant), and rub the sprayed area with the clay bar. To finish, just wipe dry with a microfiber towel. The clay will remove embedded dirt and smooth the finish. Many cars will only need this process to look nearly new.
