Don't even think about detailing it before fixing the damage!
For your information, using a clay bar removes contaminants; it will not help the car look shiny. I would recommend using a clay bar on a cool and cloudy day to remove those contaminants and then wax the car. By waxing the car before using a clay bar, you risk embedding the contaminants deeper into the paint.
