I use Liquid Glass on our vehicles. Goes on really easy, last an incredibly long time if you follow directions and let it bake in the sun after buffing it off, leaves the car less suseptible to dust, incredible shine which gets better the more coats you put on, and it super easy to take off.

Not listed but it gets my vote.

Adams quick detailed is awesome. I buy by the gal. And Adams or nxt 2.0 wax. I also use all Adams cloths as I feel they are the best I've used. Especially the great white drying towel. No stock in them just like their products. Have about 400 bucks of it sittin in my garage.

NTX is a man made sealant.
Meguiars NXT Generation Tech Wax is unlike any other car wax! Tech Wax, a synthetic, scientifically engineered paint sealant, is an alternative to

I might need to try Adams for all I've heard about it.

I'll give the ICE a testimonial. Our lovely DOT just finished leaving a layer of tar/chip on the state highway outside our house. My truck and car and my wife's Rav4 all turned white with the dust until today following a nice long rainstorm everything looks clean and perfect again!

That ICE is unbelievably slick.

Always been a Megs fan. The pro detailers are carrying it now so that must mean something. Used the black box on my wifes dark blue Fusion & a Dark green Explorer I was dumping. That stuff will hide a lot on a dark vehicle for sure. Tempted to use it on white to show what needs correcting.

My favorite detailing products are Chem 1 Wash N Wax, then hand dried. Then I hit it with some Spray Venom...

Types of Venom

Once you use ICE, you'll say: Megwhaters?

Collinite 845 is best used if you want to wax your truck only two or three times a year. I always claybar with Meguires smooth surface and buff out any scratches with a little 3M rubbing compound (it also fixes those swirls from someone who doesn't know how to wash a vehicle). Then I apply Collinite 845 in straight lines then immediately wipe the heavy layer off within 30 seconds (about enough time to set the bottle down and pick up a microfiber towel), then let it come to a haze before buffing the rest off. Don't do more than one spot at a time because it can actually spot and the only way to remove the spots is to buff them out (counterproductive). The best way to accent it is to wash with Meguires ultimate wash and wax about a weak later and apply a second coat. My profile has a picture of mine that was waxed a month before that and just rinsed off with water to send a picture to HBS.
