I was using Mothers California gold for about 9 years. I switched over to Turtle Wax Ice today. I used the liquid. Thats the stuff that leaves no white residue on plastic. What great stuff. Shines up my plastic nicely. Here are a couple of pics of the Spectra after I did it. It has a great shine to it.

I've used MER for many a year now, simple & easy to use with a great LONG LASTING shine compared to others I used before.

I use mother's Cali Gold and have for like 13 years. I just used the Ice stuff but wasn't too impressed. It didn't last as long as I thought it would. I might go back to using the Dupont Teflon wax that I used once for a touch up coat after I put the good stuff on. I have to claybar my car too. I will never buy another black vehicle as long as I live. Unless it's a garage/weekend car and I'm retired. LOL.

When is the first time you wax your NEW vehicle? And why then?

I agree, Turtle Wax Ice! ;)

You'll never get water spots with it either! The 1st rain, water spots usually are the 1st thing that ruins a new wax job.

But, it doesn't last long on the flat black exterior surface

The day I get it home because the paint will never be in better condition.


First I clean with foam from my foam canon attached to my Karcher pressure washer and use a micro mitt. I never use a high pressure stream of water on a vehicle.

Once dry I use Klasse All in One cleaner/polish on the first coat. Second coat is Klasse acrylic glaze.
