Dry and Shine

Looking for some advice on using turtle wax fry and shine. Iím planning on sealing my glass with Angel wax h2go and treating my trim with 303 automotive protectant. As the glass and trim are the last exterior bits to do do I need to tape the trim and do something to stop it going on glass?

spray it on a damp MF cloth / pad and wipe it on. Then wipe down with another MF cloth. One panel at a time.

I thought it had to be pressure washed off after application?

Iíve never had an issue with dry and shine getting on the glass. I never spray it directly onto the glass but when it runs down it when pressure washing the dry and shine from the roof Iíve never had issues. The key with dry and shine is use a tiny amount. One spray per panel is plenty and youíll see the water behaviour change instantly when the pressure washer hits the panel. Itís excellent stuff.

Cheers. Thinking about it I’ve got a panoramic roof so probably won’t spray anywhere higher than the bottom edge of the door glass. Just the trim to worry about now then.

I use the Dry and Shine as a glass sealant as well.

I spray 2 to 3 wide spritzes across each panel and glass and pressure wash off, no issues getting it on glass or trim. Does not last so long on the glass but while its there it works as well as a dedicated sealant. Never had any issues with streaks or grabby wipers etc.

Dry and shine is great on the bodywork, glass and wheels

Thanks guys, will try your suggestions.
Definitely don’t want to use it as the sealant on the glass as I have angelwax h2go here to try.
Infact the last of my supplies arrived yesterday so once we have some dry weather (probably in 3 months) I can have my first go at detailing a car instead of 1 bucket with a sponge and fairy liquid.
