4 hours on a bonnet? Eh?

Watch the pros on youtube, takes them 20 minutes at most to clay the entire car, buy a clay lubricant and very gently 'float' the clay over the body.

First time out with my clay I bought that cheap 3M stuff, did it on the coldest day possible with just cold water and it marred the paint terrible.

Be gentle, no pressure required, and it the clay isn't soft and trying to mould around your fingers it ain't ready!

Nice bowl of warm water and just keep swapping pieces to keep the part your using pliable.
