    Turtle wax Ice is some pretty great stuff!
    I'm sure Jaymack will tell you what works good for a "Show quilty shine".

    I second the Turtle wax ice. The only issue I had is it didnt seem to last as long as other products, but it gave a better shine.
    Eagle One had a good tire product out, I dont remember the name tho.

    Well Darcy can call 'em... Its really all about personal preference and I have found that Meguiars has a really good arsenal of products. I use Meguiars quick detailer ultimate every time I go to a show and I stand by it for everything! I did half my hood with meguiars quick detailer and the other half with meguiars quick detailer ultimate and the difference was more than obvious.

    I just live out in a rural area in Washington State and during the winter months my waxing consists of the local carwash so I knew this was a question that needed to be answered by a guru of shine!

    Meguiars Gold Class.

    Yields Results such as these.

    1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera Intl - 155k - 15 year old paint at the time


    1989 Pontiac Bonneville LE - 152k - 18 year old paint at the time


    1993 Pontiac Bonneville SE - 98k - 15 year old paint



    Revives old paint, beautifies new paint. Best stuff I've ever used.

    Sorry, no good pics of the truck, no good camera right now.

    I was par of a wedding a while back and had to use my baby to carry around some of the bride's maids. I used eagle 1 band and found it was easy to use and lasted a long time.

    As far as tire shine, i use Cover All from O`Reilly`s you can get it in a spray can but i buy it by the gallon for around $21.00 and then just dump some in a spray bottle,Also works great on other plastic trim parts such as bumper covers.I have used it on my dash and door panels with no problems.
