    I am back to using the turtle ice car wash, I keep trying other products but keep ending up back with the turtle. What are other products anyone is using?

    I use Griot's Best of Show wax and freshen it up betweeen those with their Spray-on Wax. (So busy with PFH this year so far that Spray-on is all it's gotten, but that will change soon.)

    I use the ICE spray before taking it out. I can't complain about it.
    This year my car hasn't had any pampering on the outside though. Just some tuning to the engine.

    Killa -- with that nice black paint, you want a nice deep finish. For dark colored cars, I'm not a fan of the Ice products. All shine, no depth.

    For a deep shine, you really need to use a true carnuba wax. The polymer stuff is fast and easy, but doesn't give that rich shine you can "reach into".

    For normal auto-parts counter products, there's nothing wrong with Mothers or Maguiers. I use a multi-layer method of either Klasse All-in-one topped with P21 Carnuba. Or Collomite 845 insulator wax, followed by the P21. All can be found online. Don't be scared of the price -- all of them will last for a few seasons.
    P21 is very soft. It looks incredible, but has no staying power -- a couple of weeks max. You want to apply it only for shows.

    Also, if you don't clay bar now, try it -- it's probably the single biggest improvement you can make to your finish. And it's easy, fast and nearly impossible to do anything to damage the paint.

    I use Meguire's Gold Class. Has a great shine and adds some amount of depth. I agree with jim on the clay bar it gets rid of all types of slight imperfections. Great stuff!!

    Interesting, Jim; we liked a lot of the same products. I used to use Maguiers, then moved on to Mothers, then to Klasse. I loved a lot of Griot's other products so I tried his wax and I've never looked back. Of course, my Laser Red is a dark-ish paint, but not as dark as black. The results may be different on black.

    I have been using only Adams Polishes ever since I went to one of their detailing clinics. My '07 Vista Blue is a daily Driver in CT and it has 77k but looks as shiny as the day it was on the showroom floor. I think they have one of the best detail sprays, but you first need to Clay -> polish -> sealant -> glaze -> wax the detail spray as needed. Also I use the Super VRT (vinyl, rubber, tire) that shines like no other with no sling and lasts for weeks.

    I have a professional hand glaze from Malco then use Mother's pure Carnuaba with NO CLEANERS!!! Cleaner wax on black makes swirls

    Home of the SmokinStangs - Northeast Mustang Rally!
    lots of good info in this thread....single most important product I'd recomend is a carnubay wax. I'd recomend you stick with Jim's suggestions.......

    Stay away from the over the counter products, they are all sub par compared to everything else thats out there. I'd recomend Pinnacle Souveran wax, it's not cheap but it works awesome and lasts along time. Only pure carnuba I use

    Just like Ed said, save teh cleaner waxes for the daily drivers!!
