Depending on how my next coat of meg'* gold class, cleaner wax, and my new buffer works, I might try that stuff.

Dish soap STRIPS wax like no other.

My Meg'* Gold Class lasts about 2 months with one coat, and over 6 with a few. I find wax lasts a hell of a lot longer when it'* done with a ROB as opposed to my hand waxing skills.

Don't have any experience with a ROB, but I've waxed my share of cars. Update on my local test. Gold on the 95 and Liquid on the 97.

95 had like 3-4 coats and doesn't look like it'* ever been waxed. Which explains why I was doing it so often.
97 beads right up and looks amazing each time I go near it with water and soap. 1 coat of glass 3-4 weeks ago. A bunch of washes and that says something to me.

Greyhare was over last night working on Boost2 with me (boost gauge, driving lights, SC oil etc), and took another look at the long-term wax test on the far side of the driveway. Even covered with dust under a streetlight it'* still very obvious. Liquid Glass OWNS Gold Class long-term.

My experience with GC while it being a good product, the beading disappears pretty quickly.

I'm not only a boostaholic but also a beadaholic. Admitting it is half the battle I'm told.

There is something odd about a half shiny Honda.
