Waxing front windshield

Has anybody ever waxed there front windshield. I do it all the time and it is a lot better than rain x. Rain doesnt even touch the windshield when im driving. With wax on your windshield, you dont even need windshield wipers. You just put it on like you would when you are waxing the body of the truck. Apply the wax, let it dry to a haze and wipe off.

I use the rain X concentrate that you put in with you wiper fluid. it works ok for me. I might have to give the waxing a try.

I've been using the rain x fluid refil but it doesn't make the water bead up like the true rain x stuff. It seems like over priced washer fluid. Are you agetting it to bead up Ben? Maybe I haven't used it long enough.

waxing works great but you have to make sure you get it all off. Its easy to streak a windshield when you wax it. Rain X is still the best for the windows.
