After clay barring the car you will probably notice that it mars the paint. You will want to polish that away. Be very careful with your microfiber towels. I did find evidence after I ceramic coated my car of some very fine lint that made it's way into the coating.

I've never seen clay bar mar the paint before! Are you using enough (or any) lubricant? Are you wiping away clay residue with a nice fluffy cloth?
