|I like Meguiars Products. and over the past summer I tried that Ice also... not a bad product, however it needs a polished surface to start with. I tried to shortcut on a work truck and found that pre-polishing is a must. |
I hear ya on the pre-polish, I actually do the 3 step Mothers polishing process they offer at the begining of each summer when I get it out of the garage. Step 1 Pre-wax cleaner, Step 2 Sealer and glaze, Step 3 Carnuba wax. I use an obital buffer to remove the dried wax and a soft bristled toothbrush to remove the residue around the emblems, trunk lid gaps, door gaps, hood gaps, etc. Aswell as Mothers RVP on the ground effects, dash. Also use NO TOUCH tire cleaner. Then when it looks like it could use a good shine afterword instead of re-doing the whole process I opt for the turtle wax ice to save time. Call me lazy but it takes me like 4 hours to do the 3 step, although i do the RVP and NO TOUCH everytime regardless.

wash with any decent car wash liquid and clay bar per clay bar directions
http://www.lifeowood.com/ (nourishes paint, goes LONG way, can mix with water to lube for claybar)
http://www.3m.com/product/information/Perfect-It-Hand-Glaze.html (fills spiderweb swirls)
http://www.blackmagicshine.com/wet-shine-liquid-wax.php (top it off, use electric buffer)
any decent silicone spray or DOT 5 brake fluid to clean the excess wax off the plastic/rubber parts
allow 2.5 - 3 hours for the whole thing

This stuff is excellent for clean back paint. Really hides any minor blemishes!
