I tried the Pledge, but it leaves streaks and a wax residue. DON'T USE ARMORAL! It weakens the strength of the Ultra and Mono after prolonged use. I don't use Armoral on anything, not even in my car. Ask any professional detailer, or ask about Armoral on any Car Detailer Forum and they will give you all the negitive reasons why you shouldn't use that stuff.

What I found that worked best, leaves no residue and doesn't harm your decals, Ultra or Mono is the Turtle Wax Express Shine. I'm the person who started that tip thread that was mentioned prior by Lnewqban, I switched my avitar from Luftwaffe Oberst to just plain Oberst.

The best way to do it is, get yourself one of those old cloth diapers (Clean of coarse) fold it in a nice hand held square and spray on side of the cloth until it is damp. Wipe on and flip the cloth and wipe off. It hardly takes any buffing, leaves a nice shine and improves airspeed because of the reduced air friction.

You can go to any Walmart, K-mart or just about any drug store and get a bottle for about $4-$5.00 bucks.
