You can find it at most places that sell waxes and such.

The cheapest I've seen it was at a local hardware store on clearance for 13 bucks.

Try a search here on Liquid Glass. You'll be surprised at the number of topics, including my long-term test comparing it to Mequiar'* Gold Class.

There'* several of us using it now.

Very true.

It'* one of those things that has been around a long time but kind of hidden in the shadows. I've used waxes for years, but this spring I went with LG. I'll never go back to wax.

I'm suprised it'* hard to find. I see it everywhere around here.

Liquid Glass is often used by car dealers to simulate factory clearcoat on used cars. Why? Because it works, and lasts a LONG time. It'* a Polymer, not a wax.

I've been using it for almost 10 years now.

I recently used it on my car, and even more recently -just this weekend, I used it on my wife'* 2001 Grand Prix GT, which is dark blue. Her car had not been hand waxed for three years, and when I wiped the LG on it, you could see water spotting embedded in the paint. (I'd prepped it by washing with dish soap and then clay bar.) -I really had to use a lot of elbow grease to buff the LG into the paint to get out the water spotting, but it did work. And of course, it left the Liquid Glass gleaming finish. Her car looks spectacular. I could actually see and feel the paint soaking up the LG. The moral here is that if you maintain it properly, it shouldn't require as much work as I had to put into it. Even using it once a year would make it a lot easier. Once you get it on good, subsequent applications go a lot easier.

My car had been waxed or polyurethaned last year, and it was much much easier to clay and LG.
