I've heard sealers don't do a lot for shine
Yea, that is the main complaint with LG, it gets a bad rep for cloudiness and flake mute. I've never used it myself, this is just what I've read. Newer sealants are also supposed to outlast LG. Again though, I don't have any experience with the product.

Cloudiness and flake mute are from application errors. 2 coats back-to-back without cure time in between, or inconsisent application.

Read the can, follow the instructions. It'* that easy.

Basically anything recommended here will do great for you.

I have used Zaino and can say that I am in love I recently picked up some Megs #21 synthetic sealant V 2.0, used it last night after some Menzerna polishes with my new UDM ( AWESOME stuff by the way ) and am VERY happy with it. I will have some pics tomorrow.

Here is a few pics of my cars after Zaino ( VERY crappy camera )

Actually, yes. Grand Marquis. I yelled at a buddy of mine to keep his crap off my car, and he fixed it. 5 minutes later I noticed it was there again, and just as I looked at it, I must have scared it. Went down the front of the roof, down the windshield, all into my wiper cowl/engine area. I got water on it right away so it didn't turn into that thick gooey stuff, but it smelled kind of funny when it dribbled on the exhaust lol. Twas regular Coke.

I think I saw leftovers of soda for about 3 months after that.

You know, I bet Coke would work well for getting off brake dust. Hmmmmm.

Seeing your faded plastic trim there you should have added some Black Wow or Poor Boys Trim Restorer to that order you got.

I don't have video of it, but I was shooting photos for an ad we were going to place for Finish First (same as LG). I tried to gently place the can on the hood of the GN, it slid off. [email protected]#!! No damage. I had to affix it in place. All I had was 3" wide masking tape. Took a big piece and looped it around to stick to the can and the car surface. Placed the can (and other products) in place on the hood. Went to take the picture, the products were too far apart. So I picked up the FF can to move it. The tape removed easily from the hood...no problem. I placed the can back on the hood about 1/2" closer than it was before and let go. Yup. With the tape still on it, it slid across the hood! I had to use all new tape on the products. The tape had just enough stick to keep stuff from sliding once. But once removed, it wasn't sticking again.

Will, I didn't see you mention the benefit to dealing with light scratches. Care to elaborate?
