    ICE! Use it on everything - paint, plastic, glass, rubber, etc ;)

    I usually use Optimum Spray Wax. It seems to hold up to the heat better and last the longest for me. However, I have been hearing some pretty good things about the new Turtle Ice Seal N Shine formula. It's definitely easier to get than Optimum, so I may give it a try next time.

    For the Windshield, I'd stick to something like Rainx.

    As an avid rain x user in the 90s, I can assure you that ICE works just as well on glass. Now, I may be talking out of my butt, but my understanding is that ICE and rain x are both liquid polymer technology ;)

    This is concentrate so dilute with distilled water, works great on glass. I have been using the same bottle for over 2 years and its basically still full. Can also use as a tire shine undiluted but i have never tried it.

    Looks like he does not sell on amazon anymore but you can get it on his web site.

    Spray was is great after a wash, but it needs to be properly prepped every so often. Clay it, polish it, seal it with you favorite wax, then use a wash and wax and spray wax at every wash.

    Chemical guys has a great wash and wax. I like griots speed wax for a spray wax.

    Here’s my method:

    Brand new vehicle:
    1. Wash
    2. Clay bar
    3. Wash again
    4. Rinse well
    5. Rinse the water off (sounds crazy, but if you imagine the water is mercury, and you’re trying to pool it together and off, it works.
    6. Spray everything with ICE
    7. Dry, but not thoroughly
    8. Spray again with ICE
    9. Dry
    10. Clean windows with fresh, clean water and dry

    After the first, brand new wash, I skip steps 2,3,7,8.

    Also, with ICE, it can come out kind of smeary if you’re not thorough, which I’m not. I use it more for protection than shine, and being synthetic, any smudges or smear ones won’t get baked in to the paint and be difficult to remove.

    I think you and I agreed on this recently in another thread as well! I love this stuff and use it on everything. Even my flat black Harley!

    Megs 15601 Express wax by the gallon. Good stuff and cheap.

    I've also used mckess37 high gloss detailer and griots spray wax they're both pretty good.

    Really tho the megs is just as good and has a great smell. I use it to clean leather sometimes too. You can use it on anything for the most part.

    Turtle Wax Ice spray wax:

    "DIRECTIONS: Wash and dry vehicle. Shake well."

    How much does a JLU weigh? Do I need to lift it over my head, or just rock it side to side?


    But seriously, how would you use this with the Aerospace 303 on fenders/bumpers? Before, after, instead of?

    I'd guess, that you would apply the Ice and then apply the 303.

    Wait til you see how good the plastic bumpers, fenders, plastic door handles, etc. look after the application of the Ice.... AND, the Ice keeps doing the job.... even after weeks the black looks good.

    You just spray Ice on. No worry at all, about over spray getting on the body or glass.. then just easily buff off. Try it just once and you will be a believer lets say.

    I usually just use the 303. I'd be afraid (possibly unwarranted) that a spray wax like Ice would eventually start to build up in the grain of the plastic.

    Best part of Ice in my opinion. No overspray worries. I've been using Turtle Wax for 40 years or so and never had any complaints. Ice has a wash, cleaner, and wax. By the way you can use Ice and 303 around the house too. I use it on my patio stuff and have a $23 grill cover that is still black on it's third year in the Texas sun.
