X2.

You can do a side by side comparison, waxing half of the car with LW and the other unwaxed or a different brand. It really brought out a mirror shine in my 12 year old paintjob.

LG was very hard to find for years. Used car dealers use it as their secret to simulating a factory clearcoat on a used car. I used to only be able to order it or get it from a local Chevy dealer.

Our local Autozone now carries it. While expensive, you really don't use much. It'* very thinly applied naturally, and buffs off FAR easier than anything out there. Best results are seen after a day baking in the sun. 2 or 3 coats of this stuff makes the car look like you spread a light coat of oil on it. VERY glossy finish, and very durable. This is the stuff that protected my hood from my hood protector for 2 years. Nary a scratch or rub mark.

Here'* my long-term wax test on the Civic test car using Liquid Glass on one side and Mequiar'* Gold Class on the other. WCBF attendees saw the car after 6 months of the test:

Note that this was a VERY oxidized car to begin with. And I did no prep work as reccommended. You'll want to remove ALL wax from your car before switching to LG.

After 30 days, Liquid Glass on the passenger side, Mequiar'* on the driver side:

Let'* not forget my Honda was BC COTM for April BEFORE LG. I would have owned all afterwards!

So, if I strip all the the wax off my car and apply LG how long will it last before I'll realistically need another application? Would there be any benefit in using another wax on top inbetween applications? BTW, what'* the best way to strip the old wax off - I've heard using dish soap is pretty rough on the car.
