Vehicle Shield Protection???

My stealership gave me a bottle of Vehicle Shield Protection Sealant Cleaner. Does anyone have any experience with this stuff? I'm thinking it should be a pre-polish and wax application, but the directions do not indicate. It's the consistancy of a cleaner wax, and I'm thinking that it just may be cleaner wax. Not sure.

Does it say toyo guard on the bottle now I used toyo guard on my 06 once made it shine like new but it's hard work next time I plan just to buy some turtle wax from autozone. But the toyo guard that i used was a few years old about 2 so in was really thick.

No, it doesn't say Toyo, but it is a Toyota item, Part Number 00020-00651. The directions are as follows:

"To maintain Vehicle shield Protection warranty, apply at least twice a year to clean vehicle"

It came with my Vehicle Shield Package:

-Lusterizing Sealant
-Sound Shield
-Sealant Cleaner
-Rental Car Assistance

Hmm...sounds like the Toyoguard package here in the southeast. It's probably a bottle of acrylic sealer.

Wash your truck very good getting as much of the dirt and bugs off as you can.
Dry it off completely.
Apply your sealant just as you would a wax using a sponge(new) to apply to an entire panel and microfiber towel to buff it off.
Then, when you are all done with the sealant, apply a coat of wax as normal. I usually apply another coat of wax about evry other car wash after that but the sun is brutal here in central FL.
REMEMBER:do all of the above steps OUT OF DIRECT SUNLIGHT!

All you should have to do now is keep it clean. It should be good for the next six months. It does a great job protecting the paint against scratches.

I too have the Vehicle Shield Package. The dealer told me that the truck has clear coat on it. They said I should use the bottle of shield protection every 6 months. I asked several times if I should ever wax the truck and their reply was no, it would do no good because of the clear coat.
I feel certain there will be a comment or two about this from the members

Yeah, you're right. While I can't argue with the shield protection being a good produce (it is Toyota after all) years of working with paint lead me to believe that anything with carnuba in it is good to put on your paint (especially with clear coat).

So with your experience, would you say that a good wax would in fact actually be in direct contact with the paint and not just the clear coat?

I understand the reasoning that the process of building up layers of protection will benefit the paint

Your truck has a clear coat. Use a good quality wax...several times.

Take what you hear at the dealer, EXPECIALLY from a SALESMAN, with a TEXAS size grain of salt! Take your truck to an autobody shop to get answers about the paint!
