Information Anyone else try ICE liquid polish from Turtlewax??

I have a 2000 sc2, dark green and I tried the clear ICE synthetic liquid polish "wax" from turtlewax on my car, I was tired of all the white residue left from waxing so I gave it a shot.

It looked good to me, and was simple to use, although it did seem a bit greasy coming off. I had claybarred the car in the past to get all the surface contamination off so it was smooth to begin with, but it seemed smoother after using this stuff. My paint was still in fairly good shape to begin with, so it shined easily.

Anyone else used it yet? Any other results?

YEah memememeeeee

I dont know how to wax properly but it did a pretty good job. My car needs a bad bad bad bad bad cleaning, Usually just a pressure wash and quick dry and im done

It did a good job, my trunk turned out nice looking, but my hands felt funky

The clear liquid went right through the applicator and got all over my hand also. I wore rubber gloves when I put on a second coat the next day. It was easier to get off the residue the second time also, and I still haven't washed the blue cloth that came with it to wipe residue off.

I wonder how often it will need to be applied, and if there is any down side to using it??

Has it rained yet? Not here, I wonder if it will be easier to clean car now that its on?

I should have worn gloves but I hate when water gets in them...They have ice glass cleaner or something too, that stuff is awesome!!!

I've bought it but haven't used it yet. Want to do the clay thing on the ION first and the SL1 doesn't need to be waxed yet, but could try it there first. It's the same dark green as yours GreenSC2. The clay stuff and wax really took the surface scratches out. I hope this fills them in even better.

Even though they call it "polish", it doesn't appear to have any abrasives in it to polish scratches. It seems to work more like a very thin glaze, but it does make it shine. I am curious how long it will last, and if repeated applications will make it a deaper shine. I have put two coats on and will continue to add coats daily to see if it deepens.

I put mine on in the shade, but I will try it in full sun also to see if that makes a difference. They said on the bottle that it is ok to do so. We will see.

It's definitely not a polish...it's a sealant only, but apparently mostly 'delivery agents' and little active ingredients. I've heard complaints of water sheeting going away after 1 wash... Personally, I'd go with Meguiar's NXT

Have you tried it or are you just quoting the "experiences" of others?

"Anyone else try ICE liquid polish" was the original question

I haven't tried it, but some detailing boards are saying that. Alot of people do like it as a 'trim sealer' since it doesn't haze and you can use it in the sun are the biggest positives I've heard, but if sun use is important, you can use poorboys products and it's roughly the same price and are pretty highly regarded.

I am interested in hearing how durable it turns out for you.

The OTC products have really been improving over the past few years

That's what I started using. It's a great wax and doesn't leave a white residue. Plus, it's much easier to remove than other waxes I've used and uses half the amount of towel surface. If ICE doesn't give you the results you are looking for, Maguiar's NXT is definitely something to look into.

Green, do you have any of the black trim anywhere?

I have the black bumpers and door handles. I wanted to use it on there but I am kind of scared, it says you can but I just worry it might eat away at it?

BW target has it for $9.99, everywhere elsei s $15

Update: I tried it in full sun like they said could be done on the bottle and it ended up being rather streaked. The streaks did come out when I reapplied it in the shade, but I won't try it in the sun again.

I have yet to see how it works in the rain, or after washing it. It does go on and is easier to wipe off each time it is appled. Jury is still out on using it long term.

June update

Still no rain here but I let the car get fairly dirty before just washing it. It seemed fairly easy to scrub the dirt off and the finish still felt rather slick and the dirt didn't seem ground in to the finish.

I have not seen any spottyness from the water, and will wait a day before re-applying the ICE. Does seem to protect fairly well, and without a lot of effort. The ease of washing the dirt off seemed to indicate to me that the ICE was remaining on the paint and not just dissipating.

The real test for me will be how well it holds up in the winter, but that will have to wait.

i'm interested in this product too. i have the black onyx, and it's very touchy to maintain. I'm really interested in the spray wax/detailer from Ice, to use on quick touchups. my uncle said it is like vegtable oil, but the shine is great. anyone have any luck with this on black, or know of anyone who likes this on black?

Thanks,
DDay
