    Turtle Wax ICE products = goat

    They recently updated both their ICE seal n shine as well as their spray wax formulas. Added gloss and more protection. YouTube torture tests validated as much. I snagged a couple bottles at Wally world to try out on our Accord for ~$10 each. Unfortunately there were some existing swirl marks in the paint so I hit them first with Meguiar's ultimate polish and an orange medium cut pad.

    Stuff is legit. ICE seal n shine sealant can be a bit streaky so you really need to go sparingly on it. First time using the spray wax and it was really easy to apply and buff off.

    Comparison of the new formula spray wax to the older formula


    Comparison of ICE seal n shine topped with their spray wax like I did vs a consumer grade ceramic coating

    Reminds me I need to invest in a mini polisher. The 5.5" couldn't get into certain areas.

    Get a 3 inch hook and loop for a drill. Then just use 3 inch pads. It will actually work faster in small areas than a DA would since it’s just straight rotary, even on the smaller scale.

    Next zett (formerly einz zett) destroys everything. I used to wax every year. This stuff keeps beads for 2-3 years.

    A little off topic but fits in this thread. I finally got my Camaro back after 11 months and thr paint and windows feel rough like they have a film of shop dirt and grime on them that won't come off with washing. Is there any product I can buy to get it off?

    Did you try the old dawn soap?

    I mean it works well to strip it down, obviously you would have to re-wax, but dawn soap wash then clay bar then rehash, wax, buff...

    It always works well for me.

    Pretty sure a media blaster would take that layer of shit off effectively.

    What is a media blaster?

    Never mind I looked it up, not sure where I could get that done and wouldn't want to have to go buy one. I was hoping there a some chemical I could wash it in that would do it.

    Yeah you only want a media blaster if you want to disassemble the car for a repaint.

    Ok so I went out to the garage since it's still raining and just had a wet rag with some dish washing detergent on it and did one spot and then rinsed it off and dried it and that seems to be doing the trick. I think once I can wash it all over and then wax/polish it again it will be back to smooth and glossy.

    What kind of washing did you use? Like car wash spray wand? If so that won't do shit for road grime/baked in stuff. Gotta break out the wash sponge/mitt.

    I first used my typical microfiber wash mitt and the Meguires wash I typically use and it still felt rough. After using some dish washing detergent on one spot that spot is now feeling better so I'm going to wah the whole car in it, minus all of the carbon fiber parts, and polish it all again and I think it will be ok

    I would wash the entire thing with dawn soap. Then claybar (or clay towel FTW) followed by the polish or wax of your preference

    That's what I'm planning on except the carbon fiber body parts as they are new and I'm afraid to damage those expensive parts.

    Makes sense. I'm sure the dawn soap and clay will take all of that stuff off

    I really like Turtle Wax's ceramic spray. Paint surface must be CLEAN, so at least clay bar/mitt/pad first prior to applying. The stuff is awesome and you can't beat the price.
