You guys remember the long-term wax test in this section? On my Honda?

Half the car was Mequiar'* Gold Class. Half the car was Liquid Glass. Everyone at WCBF05 saw the results personally, and they're posted here with pics.

Mequiars is a JOKE in comparison to Liquid Glass. There was a STARK AND AMAZING difference.

I know we all have our loyalties to our detailing products, but you can't argue with a hands-down even-steven test on the same car.

I remember those test. I would really like to see the liquid glass put up against Zaino.

Liquid Glass will have the long-term advantage, simply because it'* not a wax. It'* a polymer. Zaino or Mequiar'* may look better initially, but not by day 3.

Because it'* a polymer, it can act like a 2nd clearcoat. That'* alot of winter protection.

I am not doubting that liquid glass isnt good, but I like a better shine, and go with Meg'*. It may not last as long, but I like it better. I usually go 2-3 months on Megs, still looks as as good as day one (no doubt in my mind). (I use paste) With the right prep, application (using buffer and caranuba wax), it lasts and shines good for a long time. That is just my opinion, like it or not.

When originally waxed half/half, my Honda looked fine, and you couldn't tell the difference between the Mequiar'* half or the Liquid Glass half. At least not dry. Wet you certainly could.

I've been using Meguire'* NXT for over a year now, I really like it.A good application goes me about three months,every now and then I hit it with the NXT touch up spray.
I will try this Liquid Glass, sounds really good. Even if it'* good for 6 months I don't think I can go that long without polishing my car, I'm kind of O.C. when it comes to keeping her shiny

You must remove ALL wax before using Liquid Glass.
