Turtle Wax Ice

My OEM 92 VX paint finish is showing the years. I'll have to admit I haven't done as good of a job as I should have waxing it regularly in the 13 years I've had the car. I'd like to find a wax that works reasonably well without having to kill my chronically bad back with all kinds of rubbing, etc. I happened to see an infomercial about Turtle Wax Ice spray on wax; does anyone on the forum have experience with this product? Does it work as advertised (I am a known skeptic when it comes to infomercials, by the way)? I'm well aware that paste waxes such as carnauba probably give a better and more lasting finish, but they also require a lot of effort to apply and remove-and my back just can't take that.

I broke down several years ago and bought a 10" two-handled buffer from Sears. I was able to wax my truck twice in less time than I could do it once by hand. I kicked myself for not buying it sooner. I was even able to get out my little wheeled mechanic chair and scoot down the entire sides of the truck. It almost waxed itself. I even had enough arm left to hold several beers afterwards.

I'm a believer.

I've used the ICE liquid polish. It goes on pretty easy and comes off a lot better than the paste waxes. A buffer makes it even easier.

I use RejeX polish and have been getting it from SkyGeeks.com just ordered two bottles yesterday morning which should last about 5 years. It does not remove oxidized paint but it is a white thick liquid - apply with a micro fiber cloth or a foam pad and just spread it around evenly - or use your fingers for a thicker coating. Let dry for 20 minutes out of the sun!! and wipe the slight haze off with a paper towel or cloth towel. No heavy rubbing is needed unless you put it on too thick and then all you do is apply a little and it comes right off. You can spread it out thin or thick - usually two coats works great and the second coat goes on even easier.

Just make sure you don't use too much

I've used the spray on polish...I wasn't too thrilled, it hazed badd and wouldn't come out of the paint. I have painted my VX with spray cans though and has a rough finish though. OEM paint should be fine to use on.
