Clay isn't just for art. If you own a vehicle and like to keep it looking in pristine condition, you should know that a clay bar can help keep the body of the vehicle feeling smooth and looking its best. At Durrett Motor Co. in Houston, TX, we'd like to take a few minutes to tell you about this great technique and what it can do for your vehicle.

Seeing a spattering of tiny rust spots all over the vehicle is especially common with light-colored cars, trucks, and SUVs because the orange stands out against the light background. But any vehicle can get these rust spots. Basically, small pieces of metal from your brakes or a foundry have embedded themselves in the clear coat of your vehicle.

You can take care of these rust spots by getting a clay bar. Just spray down the side of the vehicle with the lubricant; then, use the clay bar to pull out the metal pieces.
