Yep, the stuff you use to stick pictures on walls etc.
After you have thoroughly washed the car you will still have some dirt (tree sap, pollution etc) on the paintwork. You can usually feel it as a slight pimpling when you gently run your finger over the paintwork.
Get a spray bottle with some car shampoo and water in it. Spray over the surface and use the Blutak as a rubber. The spray acts a lubricant.
The Blutak will clean the surface of your paintwork, leaving a very smooth glass like finish. Polish, then wax for a really deep finish.
It also works on glass, chrome, wheels etc.
A cheap alternative to the more traditional Clay Bar
Funny enough Blu Tak was mentioned at one of our pub meets by Mr Rostyle Reed,(regional wreck) as being as good as these clay bars that are available. Not sure where he heard it from,anyone tried it? Big Kev.

Funny you should mention that. We've been experiencing some proper autumn weather for a couple of weeks; nice and mild and sunny. Then all of a sudden we shot back into summer with mid-20s temperatures and hot sun. There's a bushfire threatening properties about 20 minutes to the west towards Melbourne. But the forecast for tomorrow is 15 degrees, wind, hail, rain, and snow in the nearby ranges.
The poor Mars bars don't know what to make of it. The flies clean it of the paintwork fairly quickly though.
