I always consider that Turtle products were like ArmorAll garbage, guess I'm wrong....
I love the Adam's stuff but also use Meguiar's "Ultimate Quik Detailer" spray and Zymol "Blue" Wax...

One last question on this - since this is safe for paint (if done properly) is it also okay to use on the windshield? I have to think that there is more gunk built up on the glass that there would be on the horizontal paint surfaces. Give me thoughts or direction...

Critter, its the best thing for the windshield, leaves it super non residue clean. Have you ever notice half ring mark outside of the windshield blades area when it get wet, Gone! Works very well....

Thanks so much Marv...I think the details and complexities of doing the right thing with a vehicle like this would drive me to do nothing rather than what all of you have helped me with....Weather permitting the clay clean is on for the weekend! Probably never been done to it. My plan is to wash, clay, rewash (remove residue), add a Maguilar's Polish/Glaze and then MAguilar's Carrnuba Paste...Concur?

Critter, I do sections at a time, it might take me all day just clay baring. I do take my sweet time by stopping and doing other things. Don't rush!!
Good Luck and post a picture when your done, I'm sure its going to come out nice..

One last one - again - on the windows what do you use as the lubricant for the clay bar? I can't imagine using the Detailer Wax like on the paint body, it would take a week of washing to get it all off afterwards...

Just thought that purposely putting a lot of detailing wax on the windshield would be hard to wash off. Obviously, from your reply it will not be - so, detail spray it is...

Well, I could be wrong, but I dont think it would be a big deal. I always clay after a rinse and before a dry. So a light misting of the complete car plus the water still there works very well for lube.
