waxing windows.

ok, my dad told me the other day he used to wax his windows with his car, and I tried it today, and boy did it make a difference. it makes them shine like there's no tomorrow!, it takes a little elbow grease, but I'd say it's worth it.
have any if you heard if this before?

Re: waxing windows.

You can use wax or a product like Rain X. I used to use wax on my Oldsmobile windsheild and didnt have any windsheild wipers so the couple times I was caught in the rain coming home from a show it really helped.

Re: waxing windows.

I actually use a Product by Adams, Adams Polish... it can be used on glass, chrome and paint. Over the past 12 years I've waxed my ride all of three times... all I use is Adams.. I highly recommend it.

Re: waxing windows.

I have used Meguiars as well but I find it streaks so easy... I've used many products over the past 13 years and found Adams to be the best. Using the polish with the clay bar especially... spritz on whip off very cool stuff.

Re: waxing windows.

Clay bar is a cleaner and you need to apply wax after using. You can find Adams products online.

Re: waxing windows.

clay bar should be before waxing but after the paint has been cleaned of any wax or protection

Try some optimum opti-seal on the winders. Going on my 4th month water still beading off like the first day input it on. Use it on my paint when I don't feel like waxing either

Rain x is really good sometimes you won't even need the wipers.
