    Looks good....Can be put on in direct light...restores trim and can be used on wheels and chrome....

    You can use Optimum's and Poorboy's polishes in the sun and Clearkote's products are fine in the sun too.

    I've heard on Autopia that Ice doesn't have good durability. :dunno:

    The stuff works good in my opinion. Alot of people are down on it just because of the brand. Its simple to put on & take off & is availiable in all stores. I used it on my '92 Dakota & it has never looked this good. I washed/clayed/washed/dried/iced & it looks almost too good, as the flaws in the paint stick out like a cock in church now. I would reccomend it. Alot of times I think many at Autopia are elietists who are basicly fanboys of certian brands. Myself, I use what works for me.

    Well it is calling itself a polish. Polishes don't offer any protection...just a shine. Maybe if it was covered with a spray wax or even mixed 50/50 with a spray wax.

    Hmmmmmmmm.......

    Personally, I love the stuff. It's almost like a quick detailer on steroids. While I wouldn't consider it a replacment for a proper polish, its definetly easy to apply on the road or while at a car show. It is quite literally like slapping on a coat on new. Even better is that you can also use it on the rubber trim.

    Like somebody said though, the duribility isn't really all that up there..

    However, with it as easy to put on as it is, are you really surprised?

    Regardless, heres a pic of my car with Turtle Wax Ice that I was able to apply in the sun on my car in the parking lot of a show that was approx 900 miles away from my house.

    Looks decent but you can probably get even better results and durability with Optimum Car Wax. If Ice makes you happy though, no reason to stop using it.
