Anyone ever clay bar one of these pigs?

I was washing and waxing the truck today and the paint feels like ****. I was like man I should clay bar this thing. Then I decided I didn't want to spend the next decade working on it.

200K of never being clay'ed I am guessing this is going to be a 10-12hr endeavor.

yay sheetmetal!

I just finished mine last weekend, and it was a PITA. Wash, clay bar, and three coats of wax.

i recently purchased a rubberish coated micro rag, that is said to work like a claybar but it was way easier. just wash, lube with a quick detail and wipe. works great !!!! reason i purchased, i had a dusting of overspray hit my truck at work. picked it up a the local paint supply house...30 bucks roughly.

I have the rust specks on mine and have been meaning to take it to a detailing place to get cleaned up, clayed, and waxed. My only issue is that it sits outside all winter and its hard for me to drop the coin/effort on it for it to get salty the next drive. I still want to get a good wax on it for the winter buy I'm just not sure when I'll get it done.

I have clay barred more of these than you can imagine. Once I got used to it I was able to do a whole CCLB in under 3 hours, then came buffing and swirl remover.

Clay'ing wouldnt be so bad if there wasn't so much contamination.

I am sure once I do it and then maintain it will take much less time.

Check out the NanoSkin AutoScrub. If I have an indoor area to work in, I can clay my truck in 20-30 minutes. I clay it every time I wash. I hand clayed for years, but I have now chunked all my bars in the trash.
