Turtle Wax Ice is what I have been using. Every time I see a sale, I seem to try another version of it. Used the liquid clay bar, real clay bar kit, detailer spray, total interior care spray, synthetic wax spray, synthetic liquid polish in bottle, and the Ice car wash. Must have 50 bucks or more tied up in the stuff. Being able to apply it on virtually everything with no powdery residue is a real positive to me. If I were to only wax once a year, I do not know how it would last, but it is so easy to use that I seem to do it at least once every month in the summer. The detailer and synthetic wax sprays usually stay in the car along with some microfiber towels during the summer for when I am lazy and go through a touch free car wash. When the car wash bill becomes more than the gas bill, there might be a problem. Need to stick to doing it at home. To my horror, the local gas station recently changed to a spinning brush type car wash. I did not realize it until I pulled up to a stop and it started. They must of heard me yelling like somebody was dying for the first minute until I went catatonic, rocking back and forth counting my teeth from left to right, and then right to left while drooling with my eyes rolled back in my skull. I tried going to my safe place, but Helena Bonham Carter was there wearing yellow dish gloves telling me to slide, so that did not work. Luckily I did not lose control of any other bodily functions. I still have not really looked at my paint in the light. I told the gas station attendant that they have to take down the touch free car wash signs, but they have not as of the last week or so since the horror of horrors. Synthetic and or sealants first or carnubas first? What is the best order for getting the depth? Which is the best for protection? I suppose once you get the rich wet depth of some carnubas, adding synthetics might slightly dull it a little. I think I remember Barry Meguiar of Meguiar's wax once commenting that carnubas can age and turn yellow and dull paint too.As it is now, I will probably stick with the Ice liquid polish, and use the synthetic wax spray as a detailer after the detailer. Besides, half the time I am stacking the liquid polish over the synthetic spray anyway. Probably find out all of it is the same stuff, just in different packages. edit*Decided the correct procedure for detail waxing would be to use a sealant or very durable synthetic wax first, doing layers and letting it cure over night, then adding layers of carnuba based waxes, like in the link below. This is after proper prep of paint. I probably will not do this because I do not want to deal with powdery residues and the ensuing clean ups on the plastics. Easier to stick with the Ice.http://www.yamahafz1oa.com/fzs...shtml
