How To Give Your Car A Glossy Shine  – Chemical Guys Car Care


What’s up guys welcome back to the
Detail Garage. Today I’ve got this dark blue KIA Optima
in the shop. It belongs to a very good friend of the Detail Garage
and she drives this car everyday so it has a lot of oxidation, scratches and swirls. The paint has a lot of contamination so if
you listen carefully…. You can hear that rough sound, that is things
that are stuck in the pores of the paint which makes it feel rough and grimy. First, we need to clay it using our OG Clay
Bar and if you are new to clay, what this is, is a sticky substance that pulls contamination
and fallout from the pores of the paint to give it a slick finish. I’ve already kneaded mine into a paddy. You’re only using two or three fingers and
you’ll need some type of lubricant. This is our Clay Luber, spray it on the surface
and work it back and forth in straight lines. Giving a decent amount of pressure. I’m only going to do a small section over
here to give you guys a demonstration of the clay bar. You can see the junk in this run off and that
is all the crap coming out of the paint to bring back that smooth feeling. When you start claying the surface will feel
kind of rough or the clay bar is dragging but as you make your passes it will pull the
junk from the paint and it will glide and then you can move on. I’m done with this small section so I’ll wipe
off the excess. Using a clean microfiber towel I’ll buff off
in one direction this way I don’t create any new scratches or swirls. The paint feels really smooth which means it is
ready for the next step of the detailing process. The owner of this car, she wants to bring
back the gloss but she doesn’t have the time to get it polished. So what we are going to do is top it off with
a glaze. Our EZ Creme Glaze is going to fill in the
minor scratches and swirls and it is going to make the metallic in this paint really
pop but more importantly it will help protect the paintwork. Now if you listen carefully you can hear the
difference between the clayed side and the non clayed side. So all the contamination on this half of the
hood has been pulled out, we are going to throw on the glaze just to show you guys the
extreme gloss and then I’ll finish off the rest of the vehicle. Over here, I’ve got my TORQ 10FX and a Blue
Pad which is for applying glazes, sealants and waxes. It will produce a very fine layer which makes
it easier for the product to bond to the surface and easier to buff off. Our EZ Creme Glaze, I’ll start by shaking
it up. This is a glaze that enhances shine to really
bring out the metallic and also fills those minor scratches and swirls. First off, I’ve loaded my pad and now I’m
going to blotch it out. Then on the lowest speed setting I’ll spread
it out in an even layer. EZ Creme only takes about fifteen minutes
to bond so after it cures we will buff off the excess. After letting the EZ Creme sit for about fifteen
minutes like I had mentioned I’ll buff it off. You can see this amazing deep reflective shine. It has filled those minor scratches and swirls
and gave it an overall slicker finish. I’m going to finish off the rest of the vehicle,
I need to clay it and apply EZ Creme all over the painted surfaces. It is a big job but luckily for me I’ve got
my buddy Rocky here to help me out. You guys just sit back and enjoy. Alright guys I’m done buffing off the glaze
and the paint looks amazing. The fillers in the EZ Creme took car of the
minor scratches and swirls and it also enhanced the gloss of this blue to make the metallic
really pop. It was a pretty heavy job to take on by myself
but luckily I had Rocky to help me out. We clayed it and that got rid of all the embedded
contaminants to get the paint feeling really smooth and then using glaze it filled the
minor scratches and swirls to make the paint smooth as glass. If you want to learn more about these products you can check them out on our website ChemicalGuys.com. If you like this video be sure to give it
a thumbs up and we’ll see you guys next time right here in the Detail Garage. Rocky you’re driving? I thought your license was suspended?

  1. Put more honesty into your videos. At 2:11 you used two fingers to rub the clayed side and your whole hand to rub the non clayed side. It really disappoints that even with such little things you dont show the whole truth.

  2. I love this show but when you were claying you were going one way and when you took the left over stuff off you were going the opposite way? I know clay can leave marring but surely you want to minimise further in the reduction in leaving imperfections.

    Keep up the good works guys.maybe you should clean that rx7 in the background

  3. Ok i should use clay bar. Then glaze then a wax. Or sealant then wax. Does the glaze wash off as i read below and the shine wont be as good ? What steps should i use to bring back the shine on my 2014 maxima. Shine is nice now but has minor swilrs

  4. I always leave this videos motivated. after an hr of just washing the car n prepping it I lose interest and never get this far.

  5. Hi c.guys…again great video..but where to get all these products..im from mauritius..small island in the indian ocean

  6. I cant believe clay bars are still a thing.. What a joke.. You can scrub your car clean and use a fresh bar and it still scratches. The whole point of the clay bar makes it a scratching machine.. The dirt and crap is in the clay. No matter how much you nead it, its in there and easily gets pushed towards the surface causing scratches.. Iv tried this on brand new cars with multiple fresh new clay bars and it always scratches after about a fenders worth of cleaning with the bar.. DONT USE CLAY BAR IF YOU KNOW WHATS GOOD FOR YOUR PAINT

  7. Couldn’t see the difference between the start and finish. Only could hear the difference. You gave us a good look at the start with the up close view then you didn’t give us a after shot. And glaze will wash off after 1 wash. Waste of time and effort to use glaze, just my thoughts.

  8. I have a 2010 Yamaha yzfr1 limited edition, the factory stickers are starting to look dull, is there a way to make them look good again ?

  9. Why didn't you wash the car before using the clay bar?

    It's difficult to see what you have done as you have used a dark car in a dark garage

  10. What's the name of that first song that plays. (this love that I'm giving you will never die) remix

  11. Quick wax tip.. go to a car wash spray on a liquid wash and wax carnuba California gold… all over car… then spray a good Regular liquid wax any meguries all over .. run thru car wash… as car drires hit it with a good detailer spray showroom shine..do this for 4wks. ..clearcoat restored…. swirl marks gone….

  12. Oh, wow I like the clay block better lol. How much do you guys charge for EcoSmart, clay block, and extreme top coat finish??

  13. Nice video. The clear coat on my hood has turned into blotchy white patches. Would the products you use on this video help? I’ve been told there is nothing I can do about it, it must be repainted. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thank you.

  14. Do you have any videos on fixing paint chips? I have the same dark blue Optima & need to fix some rock chips on the front bumper & hood.

  15. next time if you gonna make such kind of videos try focus more on lights in your garage or make video on day time.

  16. Love your editing skillz. Just enough chatter to give us information and the rest visual. Love the format. I am a New subber. Terrific job on the car man! Angel from The Bay

  17. I own MCM auto detail out of kcmo and I always wash before claying …but yeah deff more light and I don't ever recall using that much spray…i use Lucas oil speed wax with the clay..i do a couple of dealers,mostly residential…using the speed wax with the clay is very beneficial….does anyone here do ceramic coating and how effective is it ….i got this stuff called zilion but kinda afraid to use it lol idk how it's gonna turn out…

  18. Chemical guys I have a black motorcycle with a ( good) shine, it stays in the garage and is never out in bad weather, what..one..product would you recommend for the ultimate shine.
    Thanks

  19. Great video, but in India these product's are either unavailable or expensive, waiting for you Guy's to launch in India.

  20. My Dads new Honda Accord has been permaplated over possible bird dropping ghost stains will clay bar remove it ?? He wants me to fix cuz he doesn’t wanna take it in Thanks

  21. Do you really need to use a special solution to use the clay bar? Can you just use water since it's to reduce the friction of the clay bar?

  22. Can someone answer my question: I understand that you need to wash the car before the claying process but are you supposed to fully dry the car after the wash or should you clay it when it's still moderately wet and then dry it after claying it?

  23. I saw your product in Wal-Mart today in Ohio! This is great because I can get it immediately instead of wait for it in the mail!

  24. Hola… Después del Ez Glaze recomiendan aplicar el Jet seal o Butter Wax…. Saludos desde San Pedro Cholula, Puebla, México.

  25. What if I have some deeper scratches. What products do I use to make my paint look shiny again. It’s a 2008 Toyota Sequoia with a dark slate metallic bluish green

  26. As always good stuff. I have tried your products and I am always pleased with the results. Looks like I have to try this in order to make my paint pop just a bit more.
