    no need to dry before claybarring... waste of time IMO. i clay as im washing... for instance ill wash the roof, rinse it... then clay it immediately after while its still nice n wet, or ill dip my clay in the soap bucket. you can use anything really as "lube', soapy water is best, i dont see the reasont o waste the expensive stuff as lube when anything will do.
    then wash/rinse again and then its ready to dry.

    a sealant is a wax alternative. its synthetic, a lot more durable then a wax (lasts about 3x as long), but doesnt quite give the shine or "pop" that a wax does.

    for neontrail and eordonez.........instead of using the qd for a lube..........im pretty sure its ok to use some carwash shampoo instead. then use the qd after you are all done for some extra shine.

    use soapy water... anything really that can keep the surface slick.
