Default How to Superclean your windshield! (video)

Hey guys,

I made a new "How To" video using the truck. Let me know what you think! I use this method of cleaning to clean my Vette windows and the car just shines all around!

Just plain carnauba wax must be the secret. The first and last time I waxed my windshield, I had a smeary mess that I couldn't see through when I turned the wipers on in the rain. It wasn't pure carnauba, it was just regular car wax like turtle wax. Maybe a disclaimer about using regular wax? Must be something in the wax, or maybe something I did. Regardless, I've never done that again.

Dang that stinks. I have used multiple types of wax and never had a problem... You really have to buff it hard when taking it off... It also has to be very dry onto the windshield.
