I hope you understand the significance of me using my beloved BEER to demonstrate this slickness (at great risk to my mental health, I might add):

Right click, save as. 1mb or so.

And the other green car. 15 minutes to apply, an hour working on my lawnmower while it sat, and 15 minutes to wipe off:

Keep in mind if used as instructed that can will last two years or more.

Read the first page. No automation. No buffer. Never with Liquid Glass. Wipe on lightly, let it sit for a bit, and wipe it off.

Not sure... it was from a Mr. Beer kit. I don't really care a lot for whatever flavor that batch was... he doesn't either. I think it'* like the one that comes with the starter kit, hence risking the sacrifice of a perfectly good beer lol.

So you don't advocate using 000 steel wool on wheels, but you have no qualms about sliding a glass across the paint?

A beer isn't really that impressive anyway. I've had a microfiber towel slide off my car before, and it wasn't a windy day.

With LG on my cars, no, I don't worry about glass sliding across. Especially on the SLE.

I have my buffing towels slide off regularly during application. They'll slide off the hood (from the cowl area) on a level surface.

I don't use steel wool on any painted or cleared surface like my wheels.


LG isn't a soft wax. It'* a physical protection to the paint. It won't scratch any easier than the clearcoat would. And wax WILL.

LG'* finish is much tougher and more durable than any wax on the market.

Hence the reason I plan on using the 3m polish to make the car look good, then PROTECT it with the liquid glass. I've heard sealers don't do a lot for shine, so I don't think this is really a sealer, but I think that'* the closest definition for it.

And yes, I'm part of the sliding rag club too
