Wax for the focus
 
Living in western Pa and driving in woodsy type areas the front of my focus meets bugs of all sorts all too often. It's really an unapealing look. Prior to this past week I had been using McGuires spray wax which made the car look great but I could tell it didn't provide protection, so, I picked up turtle's ice paste wax. I'm sold forever, not only does it bring out the rich-race red color of my car, but my bug problem was even solved, instead of seeing smooshed bug remains, the remains are nothing but what looks like little dust spots that can be BLOWN OFF. The trouble dirt spot on the top of the rear bumper has been fixed. I highly recommend this wax for the focus for that reason alone.

Turtle Wax Ice is a poor product line.

We have a detailing chat section here too...

I've been using this for a LONG time. I've strayed and tried other products, but I keep coming back to Liquid Glass:

I like the turtle wax ice products a lot, they seem to work great ...synthetic products with added uv protection are the way to go

Liquid Glass is good stuff.

Try Collinite #845 as well. It lasts a long time and is easy to put on.

Meguiar's 3 step process with a clay bar

I use Mother's Reflections series of products, best wax I've found thus far. I like to clay bar first, or if I'm not really into to doing that I have some wax stripper by Mother's that works pretty well. Then I use the Reflection wax followed by the Top Coat, really brings out the metallic in the tuxedo black.

I just clay barred my car a little over a week ago and even with new paint it was a bit rough but not now it's the cliche "smooth as a baby's butt". I followed it up with some NXT wax and it came out real nice.

I live in Ohio near the lake and get a lot of bugs. I just use Meg's carnauba wax on mine. Bugs come off pretty easy when I wash my car the next time.
