I have to agree regarding the Clay Magic Kit.  While spray painting some
parts one day, and not realizing it at the time, overspray drifted onto
my Jeep 
parked nearby. After washing I used the Clay Magic and was very happy
the way
it cleaned the contaminants from the surface.  Now I always use it prior
waxing the LBC's (and Jeep).  It sells for around $20.00 as I recall at
Boys and Griot's also has Paint Cleaning Clay listed in their catalog
