    I use the Zaino clay kit. But I think you'll get good results from anything as long as you use the proper technique.

    a recommendation from a past exterior detailer is to get some tar remover or lacquer thinner to take most of the tar off first. just avoid your plastic pieces with the lacquer thinner, its causes most of the unpainted parts to fog up white. also you can use a cutting compound on your headlights, taillights, front markers, front turnsignals to freshen em up using a high speed buffer or high speed drill with a polishing ball. good luck!

    also use a hair water spray bottle filled with water for the clay lube, more is better, and mix the clay onto itself regularly so that it is most effective.
