Nothing goes on easier or comes off during buffing easier than Liquid Glass. I can do 2 coats in less time than it takes to do one coat of traditional wax. However, it'* best to let it 'cure' in the sun for 4 hours between coats.

Psst Bill...I found Zaino to be equally as easy.

However...staying on topic... both are by far the easiest products I've used as well.

actually gang it did not fair to well with "the car wax test report"
a non biased report from Guru Reports
http://www.gurureports.org/specialre...waxtest.3.html
tested 46 different kinds of waxes.
now they will not tell you the results because they want you to buy it.
But a kind friend has made a copy for me.

I'll have to find it when I get home and post results later.



this is not a flame

There are too many things they may have tested differently. What prep? What directions? Did they let it cure properly?

I've used all the major wax brands personally for many years. I could really care less what someone'* test report says. I know what works on my own vehicles, and my testimonial as well as others here that use LG are more than enough for me.

Independent tests are NEVER neutral and fair.

Tom told some of us at NEBF that when they tested Zaino..they applied and prepped wrong. Then mentioned bad results...the addicts beat them down and they retested per the correct instructions and had great success....

I wouldn't put much faith in their test methods.

You are correct with the statement! However whatever works best for you is what you should use.

I agree 110% about the statements regarding Zaino. It works EXTREMELY well for me.

But, I digress, this thread is about Liquid Glass.

I was researching what product to use on my car and searching through the club forums here, and I ran across Bill'* test on his old car. (I think it was an old Honda.) -He did LG on one half and one of those Mothers or Meguiars products on the other half. A month later the LG side still gleamed, but the other side was appreciably dull. That was enough to convince me to give LG a try, and now that I've glassed my Bonneville and my wif'es Grand Prix, I have to say, the stuff works.

This isn't to say that Zaino isn't comparable, -I've never used it. But I can definitely vouch for Liquid Glass. There'* one other thing about Liquid Glass that makes me *really* like it: Not only can you use it in full sun, you SHOULD use it in full sun to let it bake in! This was the convincing thing for me, because I have limited time available for things like waxing cars, and in California, we get a lot of sun. It is difficult for me to find a suitably cloudy day to wax the car, or even to find good shade. But with LG, I put it on in the evening, let it sit overnight and bake in for a day in the parking lot, and buffed it off the next evening. And it SHINES!

I think the main comparison is to products like Mothers or Meguiars, with their labor-intensive multi-step applications of multiple products. With Liquid Glass, I washed the car with dish soap, clay bar'd it, and Liquid Glassed it to perfection. I'm not sure how many coats of various Mothers or Meguiars products are in their multi-step systems, and I don't intend to have to find out! (The hard way, anyway.)

Having not tried Zaino, it sounds like a very similar product to Liquid Glass.
But I can definitely vouch that Liquid Glass is some shiny stuff!

I've heard of a lot of debate of LG vs. Zaino.

They have pretty similar results, but each will have a different opinion on which is better.

But when you compare how much they cost, LG is WAY cheaper.

Well with me having a black car…

I love LG… it works really well, easy to put on even easier to take off

I put on coat on. Waited a week. Washed and did a second coat.. man it looks a lot better then with stander Wax..

Well LG doesn’t have an wax in it so that’* maybe why it looks better.
All I know it that now when my car gets COVERED in dust and dirt from the new building going up next to my work… all I have to do is just run the hose over it and all the dirt comes right off. And the rain does the same thing. Never had that work with Mothers wax or any other…
