    What are you guys using for wax/exterior care these days? Both my truck and wife's car exterior need some TLC. I've really grown tired of the wax getting into the plastic and leaving the white haze. Seems inevitable no matter how careful you are. I've seen lots of advertisements for the spray stuff (turtle wax ice, F11 topcoat etc), but curious what sort of luck folks have had with that type of product.

    Looking for something a little easier to work with and forgiving.

    I've been using the ICE brand of car care products for Years Jourdan.. the wax goes on easy, comes off easy.. NO white haze on any of the trim stuff.. can be used on ALL of the exterior parts & pieces. Good Stuff. It's a Synthetic.. can be applied/used in Sun & Shade

    Still not supposed to get wax on unsealed plastic anyways.
    I switched to meguiars carnuba wax. (I think, would have to double check)
    There's many many different products out there. Hard to keep up with them all.
    I follow a couple detailers on YouTube. Pretty good info out there. Top 2 imo, obsessed garage and ammonyc.

    I'm a Mothers and Meguiars fan. I like the carnuba for keeping things clean. A good sealer that was recommended to me is made by a company called Klasse. I think I ordered it from Chemical Guys. That one is good for when I have to detail the wife's car a week before a show. All the dew and stuff seems to run off of it.

    Griots makes a really good spray on wax as well. I picked up a bottle from O'reillys. I use it in between the major wax jobs like a quick retailer.

    I'm not a pro by any means, but I think I do ok. [​IMG]

    The best website for wax/sealants and autodetailing that I have seen is https://www.autogeek.net/ i'm not a pro either, but AUTOGEEK has videos on how-to do it.
    I've used "Klasse ALL-IN-ONE Polish", which is a sealant, with excellent success.
    And I like "Pinnacle Signature Series" for carnuba wax applications.
    Good stuff.

    The ice works great. It darkens the plastic and has a great shine. Little pricey but worth it.
