  3. I like Griots Garage sealant and cleaner all-in-one. Used it on my '99 4Runner and it really cleaned up the paint nicely. Sealant is better than wax because it will last a lot longer. But you'll still want to run the clay at first.

    Groits makes excellent stuff!! I like the turtle wax ICE... easy on/off!!! I like any product that protects the paint and does not involve lots of labor and time to apply. Tried this stuff.. seems to work???? http://www.fastwax.com/

    Of all the members of this forum, Palladium is the only one who has mentioned Zaino. And I am surprised to find so many members preferring ICE. Comparisons of Zaino and ICE can be found on the web and photographs show Zaino as being a much deeper and more lusterous shine.

    Zaino is a polymer polish/cleaner that takes a little more time and effort to apply, but lasts and lasts and lasts between applications. The extra time and effort will pay off between applications and in terms of the surface protection. Water beads up and dirt and grime seem to just rinse off. Bird droppings and air pollution residue are easily wiped away off the Zaino protected surfaces. Super. I can't really tell you how nice it is to just wipe away crud like that. You have to experience it.

    Auto detailers that advertise showroom quality detailing? Zaino.

    You can't find Zaino in stores like Walmart, etc. You can order it from the Zaino store on the web.

    A clay bar is a clay bar. Any brand will do. Differences arise in whether a polishing and surfacing product is a paste or liquid and its chemistry. Detailers have told me that many products are otherwise repackaging of the same thing with only a few unique stand-outs like Zaino.

    Zaino is applied in three coats after the top-down rinse and clay bar. That is followed by microfiber rubbing on of a Zaino top sealer. Make life easy when doing the three applications by getting a cordless rotary buffer (A Ryobi is cheap enough).

    I use Griot Speed Shine, clay, and the Speed Shine again. Good to go.

    I love the way that smells. If I could I’d put it on my truck. I used it on my surfboards.

    Turtle was ice liquid wax is a fantastic product. It’s recommended to even put it on the plastics and weatherstripping and it DOES NOT leave a white residue. Super shiny finish and water beads for months.
