Does clay barring remove paint sealant?

    When I had my last car (2000 Celica GTS) I loved clay barring and waxing it. Now that I have a 2010 Taco with some dealership-applied sealant (yea stupid me, should've done my homework on getting that :rolleyes:) I'm wondering if I can clay bar it. Will that remove the paint sealant?

    Most likely, yes. However, it's more important to remove bonded contaminants than it is to worry about whether or not you will strip off any dealer-applied sealant.

    If you like to wax often, get an easy to apply spray wax like CSI Q-7 Wax, Duragloss Aquawax or Meguiar's Ultimate Quik Wax. You can't go wrong with any of these.

    I just love it when a vendor gives props to, and recomends products they don't sell. That's awesome..... :)
