    My huge stash of NXT is about gone, and for some reason I cannot find it around here. I've looked at 5 stores :wtf: Meg's website still shows it though... I was thinking of getting the detailers gallon, from what I remember, wasn't it just concentrated NXT (???) What's the new hotness in glass cleaner these days? I still have some NXT and IG left, but if something else new is better I'm all for it. I need to make an order for some stuff before colder weather hits anyway (like some ONR :o ).

    I personally like Eagle One 20/20, or just polish the glass with Werkstatt Prime while I'm doing the paint. Makes it look like new and gets rid of all the water spots.

    I've been using Clearkote's Quikshine. You can also make your own using ONR at QD strength and adding an ounce of denatured alcohol.

    I really like the original windex. Real streak free if you use clean towels that don't have any sort of residue/fabric softener on it. The no-drip windex will give you some more problems in my history. Also, go to Costco where you can get the cheapest windex, paper towels, and microfiber towels.

    No windex? Does it remove wax or something?

    Windex isn't tint safe, at least it wasn't a few years back. Besides, automotive glass cleaners are formulated to cut through bugs and grease, etc.

    Wash it first dip shit. Its not going to take off bug guts that hit the windshield at 50 mph. Get a bug sponge.

    the ammonia causes the tint adhesive to swell, breaking down the bond to the glass.

    ZEP's Concentrate. One gallon is 9.89 at Home Depot. It makes 10 gallons. Works wonderful in the sun too. Almost borderline APC strength. Tint safe.

    I've been using Invisible Glass for years and love it. I ran out yesterday cleaning up a Legacy GT so today I went to Home Depot and they had Sprayway for $2.50 a can (comparable aerosol foaming type cleaner, a lot of detailers like it apparently) so I grabbed it. It's good, but I don't like it as well as IG.

    OOPS! I have been using it on my tinted cars since 2000! I guess they changed the formulation because none of my cars tint is damaged, fading, or bubbling.
