I think we should continue these tests.....

I would compare the Mothers 3 Phase system to Liquid Glass......
If Bill doesn't mind his Honda being a lab rat.... we could keep comparing waxes.... winner stays for the next round.

But my car looks like ****. Then again, my car IS ****. I can tell you that you'll be hard pressed to find something that works this good. This is what the used car dealers use.

Yay!! I got it right. As much as I hate to admit I actually listen to Will....

Is anyone else getting bombarded by commercials for this stuff??



It'* been around forever, so it can't be all bad. But the one time I used it (many, many years ago), I wasn't overly impressed...

Haven't seen any commericals..... but it'* always on the shelf at CT..... dunno... never tried it....

I'm a Mothers guy myself...... I'd love to try Zaino.... but I might give Liquid Glass a chance too.

I always used the Mothers 3 Phase system, and the clay bar beforehand, when necessary. Worked great, didn't have much to compare it to but the wax lasted a long time. I just recently got the Meguiar'* nxt Generation wax (something like that). Seems to work good, but again, it'* hard to tell since I haven't compared it like you did Bill. Plus I have a white car so I won't really be able to tell a huge difference in waxes, at least in shine. I could tell by the beading of water though.

I've used Mothers and Meguiars, and have been happy with both. But I gotta try this stuff out now.

Bill, 3 coats in the normal time for one. Do them all.

The beauty is after the second day. The sun bakes out any haze, and 'float'*' it in level. It always looks better a day or two later.
