    I waxed my truck with Turtle Wax Ice today, very easy to apply, and, the truck looks and feels great!we'll see how it does when it rains. Anyone else ever use this stuff? What do you think of it?

    I have read about it quite a lot on this forum and just bought some last night. Plan to give it a try this weekend. Glad to hear you liked it.

    It comes in liquid with an applicator, and spray on. I used the spray on. I did the windows, mirrors, wheels, paint and bumper. Truck looks AWESOME! it's supposed to rain later, can't wait to see how well it does! Here's a pic of my clean truck.....

    The paste version is awesome! The paste doesn't just require elbow grease, but frickin' glucosamine, chondroitin, and MSM. Meaning it's tough to wipe off with a microfiber towel but stays on for good amount of time. Rain EASILY beads off. I highly recommend it, except on black of course. Turtle Wax made a kit specifically for black that's more labor intensive but very well worth it again.

    Did my truck two weekends ago with the spray on version. Very quick and easy application. I did everything on the exterior, including glass, plastic, chrome and painted surfaces. Very good bead in the recent rain we had. In fact, water rolls of it so well, the truck hardly looks dirty after 150 miles of driving in the rain on the interstate. Don't know how long it will last, but it is so easy to apply that doing it every other month or so wouldn't be hard at all.

    I use the spray wax every time i wash the truck. Have been for about a year now.

    just saw the past wax the other day. Think I’ll get some and try it as well, now that i see a few good posts about it. I like to do a past wax ever few months, and the spray wax every time i wash.

    I have used that stuff for a while now, the new stuff you can use everywhere is awesome. When it rains all the dirty water just beads right off.

    The dirty water really does just bead off the truck. I was so impressed I did my wife's Honda this weekend with the same good results. We drove it in the rain Sunday and it still looks clean. The Harley is next....:)

    Been using it for a year now. What I like about this product is that I can apply it on plastic without leaving any residue.

    I used the spray-on, wipe-off detailing spray this weekend, after running the truck through a touchless automatic car wash (one of those things that never actually gets a vehicle completely clean, but clean enough) and the results were very nice! Coming out of the car wash I had water spots and dust, and some stuck on bugs still. I used some bug/tar wipes to clean off the stuck guts, and then sprayed on the detailing spray. One cloth to wipe it all over the panel, and then a second cloth (keeps it dry) to polish it off. I used it on everything except the glass and the tires - RainX and Armor-All for that - and I was very happy with the results. It took me about 30 to 45 minutes to do the whole truck.

    I was going to try it. Then, my wife bought me an Armor-all:( package for a gift. I think I better try it first. Maybe I'll use the A-all on her car, and get the Ice for my truck.

    I've now done the Harley with it as well. Still very happy. Did the truck back in June and it still beads up very nicely and the bugs slide right off when I wash it. Good stuff.

    Just applied some today after claying the entire truck. Looks awesome!! Best part is you can use it on every surface an no white stains on platice/rubber. Now I'm curious how it will hold up after rain or overnight dew.
