oh and for the MR>clean it works but after 2 washes i needed new filters for it at 9.99 so i threw it away . i think i just enjoy the 6-8 hours i spend cleanin my truck im not really in a hurry when i clean so i didnt need the no dry of the mr.clean
I go to the local coin-op car wash once a month whether the truck needs it or not. $3.00 in the slot, pull forward 'til the light turns red, multi-nozzle hose water/soap/polish thing spins around 4 or 5 times and I'm good for another 30 days or so.

Wash it real good with something like Dawn dishwashing liquid to strip all the old wax off, use a clay bar over the entire vehicle, wash it again, put one coat of Z2 on the vehicle and let it sit for at least an hour (the longer it sits, the better it is), buff it off with a white 100% cotton towel made in the USA (100% cotton towels made outside the USA are not 100% cotton), apply another coat of Z2 as before, buff it off, then use the Z6 Ultra Clean Gloss Enhancer and spray it on and wipe off with a clean 100% cotton towel 1 square foot at a time.
It's a lot of work but well worth it. I polish my vehicles about four to five times a year but only do the entire process above once a year. I don't put as much time and effort into it the other times out of the year and don't strip it with Dawn but still use the Z2 and Z6.
Another good thing about Zaino is that you can use it in the sun and use a back and forth motion when applying it rather than the standard Karate Kid motion.

You can get a bottle at most auto parts stores or Summit Racing for $5.95. This stuff is awesome! It will make faded plastic look better than new, and one application will last several months. I have been extremely impressed with this product and I highly recommend it for all CC owners .

"A comment about the new ICE product. It is unbelievable. I have a truck which is all primer (black). It is faded and the ICE product brought it back to black instead of gray. I will definitely use again. You can polish primer. Great product.”

"Just tried Turtle Wax ICE on my black 1961 Oldsmobile Super 88 in direct sunlight. It is an absolutely amazing product. The "waxing" probably took a third of the time and did a beautiful job with no streaks that needed a lot of struggle. Thanks for developing such a great product--my Meguiar's has been relegated to hubcap duty!"
- Dave Mahan
"I just tried your ICE product. It cut 50% off my usual time to do the car and went on and came off easily, with a great shine. Thanks!"
- David King
"Thanks for developing the new ICE Polish. I have always been a Meguiar's user but decided to try ICE. It is a fantastic product! Application time is less than Eagle One's spray wax. It leaves a beautiful wet shine look and no residue! Keep up the good work!"
- Dave Kane
"I am a detailer and I am always trying to find the best products to give me the best results. I am traditionally a user of Meguiar's until I went to the store the other day and noticed your new ICE polish, on a hunch I bought it. After using it twice and going through 4 washes and two days of nonstop rain, I am happy to report that the water still beads off the car...I am very happy with it and will buy more in the future, it has given me confidence in your company and I may just start to test out more of your products."

The way you've got your interior set up is exactly what I'd like to have in mine.....when I get one! And I will be getting one after seeing yours work out on the trail! .........IMHO, the crew cab has the absolute best mix of all the above! .................Now for the big question.... How the hell did you keep that thing so clean out there??? While all of our rigs looked like dirt magnets.....the dust seemed to just fall right off of yours!?

Dunno Maybe it doesn't work as well west of the big muddy when it is applied there It apparently does well West of it when it is applied East of the Mississippi
A possibility but, I don't know. I did the liquidHenryJ wrote:..........I wonder if a second application might be what it needs to start working?
