    What are you using for polishing your machines?

    So I have been trying to figure out what is the best way to get the most shine on my ski's without wasting a lot of elbow grease (need to save some for lifting the suds while doing the job). I have used TR-3 resin glaze in the blue can, turtle wax liquid, nu-finish, Turtle Wax ICE, and some other stuff that was supposed to be a cleaner wax. I like the ease of the TR-3 but the shine goes away unless you wax over the top of it, I myself don't want to go over the machines twice. Nu-finish actually holds its shine for quite a while but doesn't glisten like I want it to. Turtle wax is a major pain in the rump to remove after it has dried. I have come to the conclusion that the ICE formula was some sick, twisted b*sterd's idea of a joke, pay good money and receive a product that wouldn't polish or protect the plastic jug it comes in.
    What have you been using that is working best?

    I got to tell you, as far as the easiest stuff I've ever used, it would have to be Ardex Viper Wax. It's a liquified paste that goes on easy, comes off easy and shines really well.!!!

    Just spray WD-40 on it Casey. it will look brand new instantly..then go ride it all day and the next day it will get blotchy on ya.. its a "i'm lazy today" way of rubbing out your ski...lol

    I had the owner of chapperal boats tell me to wipe trans fluid on the hull where its faded on thier vessels.. it works instantly but it gets bltchy like the WD does too. try it, you"ll see what I mean.

    I use meguirs carnuba wax and it works excellent. wax on wax off!

    So does WD-40 outshine Armor All or is it easier to use because it's in an aerosol can?
