Claying the car won't damage the paint. Just remember don't use it on the same section for a long period of time because it can possibly remove some of the clear coat then you'll have to rewax that area again. Just clay the area until it doesn't pick up anymore debris.

Okay, thank you.
I'll probably get my dad to help me to speed up the process. He has a waxing machine as well, just need to buy the wax. But I prefer to wax it by hand, the machine is kind of heavy.

i dont think claying can remove the clear but am not sure)

Also I dont clay in Circles, I actually go with the direction of windflow ie the way air will pass it as you drive (been told this by several detailers, not sure why though)

for claying just keep it wet and dont let it dry on your car ^_^ and you dont have to use any kind of pressure what so ever just let it glide then it should be as smooth as a babys behind when clear coat is clean :P for your sideskirt use an interior cleaner for the plastic moldings i personally use turtlewax ice liquid wax on plastic trims because its safe for plastic or painted surface :P
