I got Griots w/Speedshine. Will probably use rinse from my second wash as lubricant. I defer to whatever Ripsnort advises.

on the forums over at autopia-carport.com, the Mother's kit is highly respected (considered one of the best if not *the* best). the good news is that you can get it at your local Kragen and I think even PepBoys for like ~$14 complete with a quick detailer spray for lubricant. good price on a good product.

Sounds like a product from heaven.

Claymagic, sold at Autozone. $10 for the claybar and lubricant. I haven't tried it myself, but apparently it works well. I've also heard great things about Griot's. Mothers and Zaino are the ones I've tried and they both work well. Zaino's is a bit more rubbery while the Mothers bar is a bit stickier.
