Pretty much the same. Haven't tried ICE yet so. Did you try the ice on the fenders?

I remember you saying that way back before the hubster bought the Jk lol.

IMO--with smaller tires, they look dumbo (ish)

There is a new set local to me on CL for $100. I have been debating buying them to chop and bedline.

I had the same issue on the black plastic trim on my 07 car but after a couple of applications the orriginal colour came back, maybe just luck on my part?

Here is what I used. My fenders are 1 year old and this is the first time I've put anything on them other than soap & water. Man this stuff works great, and the rain today helped prove it.

Hmm, let's add it all up:

Anti-detailer
Lazy
Cheap

Man, I'm there. Turtle Wax Ice Detailer it is...

jk'n OK, sorry for all of the confusion about ICE.

First off, they make an interior ICE and an exterior. I have tried the interior cleaner and have been very happy with it for inside work and it seems to work great on the seals as well. I'm now tempted to try the 303 on the interior.

The exterior ICE comes in at least 3 flavors. I have used the liquid detailer in the spray bottle and the liquid ICE (not the detailer) and they both seem to produce the same results. I use the liquid after a wash and the detailer sometimes between washes.

I have not used the paste yet but I have heard that it has the same ingredients in it more like a synthetic wax.

They also make a liquid form of clay bar ICE. I have used that on my wife's PT cruiser and it works well. Good for removing that foggy sheen that sometimes appears after years of neglect. Really brings back the deep luster shine.

All of my use of the ICE product is my sheer laziness when it comes to detailing. I consider myself the anti-detailer. It goes on easy, it doesn't require a lot of buffing, you can apply it in sunlight or shade, and if you get it on the plastic, so what.....coat the whole thing and it looks good and black and sheds water.

x2 (or 3, or 5, whatever).

Under Turtle Wax Ice there is a polish, a wax and a detailer. My GUESS would be the detailer. Anybody know for sure?

Thought it was bad to get wax on the fenders. Anybody used it on Bushwacker flat styles?
10-18-2011 12:33 PM
sneck I wound up buying a bunch of the ice stuff from amazon. I got the spray, the soap, and the polish. I don't really dig the spray, but it seems to be the synthetic wax; the polish seems to be the more traditional style wax that was able to buff out a few of the pin strips i had developed.

Amazon.com: Turtle Wax T-468 Ice Liquid Polish, 16 ounces: Automotive seems to be more like normal wax, I like.

Amazon.com: Turtle Wax T477 ICE Synthetic Spray Wax - 23 oz: Automotive seems to be a top coat finish. makes it look wicked nice, but useless for buffing anything out

Amazon.com: Turtle Wax T472 ICE Car Wash - 64 oz.: Automotive the soap. didnt seem to do anything magical, but smells nice

InfernoGirl Yes, the protectant is what you want.

Yup, inside and soft top fabric for me with 303.

Still trying to figure out this ICE thing ?

I starting to believe all the ICE products are the same just they comes in different forms.

I guess you can use it on anything, plastic or paint.

azyjjk I have used Ice and Back to Black in the past. I am now using 303 for the UV protection. UV is what turns the fenders gray over time. 303 immediately turns them back to black and I think it is much easier to apply, though more expensive. Ice looked really nice but the fenders didn't stay black after a few months on mine.
