The best thing about turtle wax ice is it is available everywhere. It is great for waxing all the black parts on your truck.

Did I read you actually tape off your trim each time you wax? Nobody else caught that?

Thats just a whole other level of detail. I thought I was particular about detailing, but you just dialed it up a notch.

Yep every time, it doesn't really take that long, and saves the trim from the white residue.

I use tape also. It's faster than looking on here for something to take the white crap off the trim everytime I wax my truck. To each their own.

The key is to remove the wax before it dries. Many waxes can "hit" the trim and be removed quickly without issues. The problem arises with heavily textured trim getting wax on it where it is hard to physically remove the wax.

That's true, but everyone uses a different product. The tape is still easier for me.
