Quit busting on my car. Your Volksthingy needs Liquid Glass more than the Gold Class side of my beater.

There you have it boys, about 12 members here have seen the results personally in the last week.

Actually it needs a bath (or two) and a case of clay bars first.

Guys, clay bars are designed NOT to remove wax. So just claying a your cars will not take the wax off.

you have a few choices:
1 wash it with dish soap (remember this will also remove oils from plastic and paint that should be there.
2 3M adhesive/wax remover
3 the cleaner in one of the 3 step cleaning processes

Ok, this was 30 days into the test when I posted it, and it was posted on:

I waxed half the car with Gold Class and half with Liquid Glass in Early/Mid June. I'm sad to report that the Honda is going to it'* new home in the next couple days, and since she'* going to a good frend and co-worker, I can't pass her on in her half/half condition. So I washed her up and re-waxed the whole car with Liquid Glass. I thought I'd share the after rinse pics with you. The passenger side is Liquid Glass:

Mequiar'* Gold Class can kiss my Liquid Glass
I knew this would be the case before the test. I've been using the glass for several years.
