Waxing the Ultra.
I'm going to wax my Ultra before putting it up for the winter.
What is okay to wax?
What should I NOT get the wax on?
Any techniques you guys use? Favorite brand of wax maybe?

somebody just waxed their ski, it was a red one. Looked great. He used McGuires with the clay bar.
I've waxed my ski, well, okay, my cousin waxed it for me prior to a race. It looked great. He even did the black rubber in the front, nice and shiney!

Try Meguires Polish. It coats like a wax and also conditions. Its also easier and faster.
For the rubber and vinyl you can use fluid film or tire gloss.

You should wax anything thats painted , try not to get any on the plastics. I even wax my mirrors. I always use Nufinish its a great product it works good at repelling salt too.

Very very nice.
Was this Meguires you used a Marine wax or just an automotive wax?

Get some Turtlewax "Ice"
You can put it on anything. Plastic,chrome,vinyl,rubber.
It does not leave any white residue and goes on and off very easy.
It's nice not to have to worry about getting wax on all the black parts of the ski.

The clay bar works very very well. I use it often when the finish of my cars or ski starts to look hazy. You just have to be careful to never let any dirt get on the bar. Finish it off with a good carnuba wax and your golden.
