Nu-finish is one of the worst IMO. It never lasts, and doesn't have a hard finish. That'* why he'* after Liquid Glass.

Do a search on "liquid glass" on this forum, search for all terms with me as the author. You might be surprised.

that i would disagree on because thats all I ever use on all my cars is the nufinish and the meguires #5 show car glaze and have one top prizes at the world of wheels in my cars. Plus the consumers buyers guide does numerous test and hard test on nufinish. Check it out for yourself.

I have checked it out myself. And I'm not talking about showing here. I'm talking about durability and armor for your car. Liquid Glass is the closest thing to a clearcoat that you can get. Used car dealers use it for that purpose. I challenge you to wax half your car with Nu-Finish, and the other half with Liquid Glass. I did the same thing with Mequiar'* Gold Class and Liquid Glass on my Honda Civic before I sold it. Look it up here.

If all you've ever used is Nu-Finish, how do you know how it would compare? I've used both products. I'll take Liquid Glass.

i dont doubt you one bit. but I have used liquid glass and also alot of others mostly Meguires and mothers. I have tested many of them and not one can you apply in direct sunlight not one. Like OleBlueeyes states in this forum he had bad luck with Liquid glass which left spots on his car. That i have experienced for myself because my car is white and its alot harder to keep clean. I also own a Black 68 camaro with a 650 cubic inch big block/6-71 blower that runs in 7 second class mountain motor class here in MD which is a total pain to keep clean and not one can touch nufinish on a my black camaro. Also dealerships dont use liquid glass but they do use the PPS paint sealant to help protect new cars from sitting outside in different weather conditions. that I know

First of all, my experience with Nu-Finish is horrible.

Secondly, my Liquid Glass gets applied in full sunlight, as it states on the can that you should.

Third, I've never had spots or streaks, because I didn't have any wax remaining when applying it (as Marty'* case would probably show).

Third, get back on topic. If you want to start a debate, start a new topic. I believe this topic is "How do I prep for Liquid Glass", not "What'* the best wax".

thats very true. Welll then on the topic. Try out Liquid Glass and read the instruction on applying it. Make sure your car is clean and dry and see for yourself. Like they say " you will only learn from experience". So try it and Good luck!

i have used nu finish before and it was real nice on my old white car, a 90 cutlass calais. i tried it on my blueish green 96 regal, it sucked- as did every thing else i had the patience to try. on my garnet red metallic 99 blazer, i used nothing but duragloss clear coat polish and it was AWESOME. on my burgundy 88 toyota camry I used a 3 step process and a buffer with meguires stuff and it was like glass when i was done. so different cars, different paint, different levels of contaminants/old wax on the finish, etc etc etc. there are many good waxes/polishes out there, and too many variables. youll never know how good/bad something works for you unless you try.


speaking of which, i also want to try the liquid glass on my bonneville, or maybe the NXT stuff (but I hate the ricer bottle) and I will also probably try the duragloss CCP again. I dread waxing my car though, since its black.

I will stand and vouch for Liquid Glass. It is the best, hands down, polish in my garage now, and I doubt any other could even stand a chance next to its durability. Gold Class Meguiars even wears off WAY faster in weather VS Liquid Glass...I re apply every 6 months, an I also use the pre-cleaner, good good stuff. I saw Bill'* old Honda this August, it had Liquid glass on it, very high mileage car, looked GREAT. I had it on my Bonneville before making the trip down to Oregon. Paint honestly looked new, hands down.
