Seems OK to me. Nice how you have no white residue and don't have to be careful about getting it on black plastic parts.

Thanks for the recommendation... I like Meguiar's Quik Interior Detailer. Will give Tech Wax a try. So goo or paste version? I would guess paste lasts a bit longer?

It's easy to get a consistent sheen with the stuff. Easier than armour all original.

But you use the word synthetic, so are we talking about synthetic spray wax or interior detailer?

Originally I was asking about TW Ice (synthetic wax). Someone recommended Meguiar's instead of TW. I mentioned I liked Meguiar's interior products, and since it came so highly recommended would try their Tech Wax instead of TW Ice.

If you were talking to me that is.... *grin*

the Tech wax's over all protective finish will last longer than any other product that I'm familiar with. (I own a Detail Shop) I also recommend turtle wax "black box" but its a multi-step program, it's designed for black vehicles..

The last two times I used turtle wax it left wax all over the truck. I put it on then buffed it out. I did everything right and it turned out horrible, so I haven't touched anything turtle wax since.

wax has to dry, if it draws moisture it's a bitch... if you ever have that problem again it washes off with soap

That goes for waxing factory rims too? I hate brake dust and now I got 4 wheel disc brakes.

Speaking of which, does anyone have any experience with ceramic brakes? R they worth the extra money to keep the brake dust at bay?
