I am a sucker for buying the perfect wax. I own a lot of different types, so I bought this.

Anyone ever use Liquid Glass polish? Its like 22 bucks for a 12 oz can.



a review on the net
Liquid Glass. I picked up Liquid Glass at Pep Boys on a whim and tried it out on my Audi. It was the first new wax I tried after I completed my initial wax test, a year or so later. I was so pleased at the resulting shine that it resurrected my interest in car wax, which had gone dormant after the initial wax test was complete.

Liquid Glass is as easy to work with as Zaino, including no white powdery residue. It says it's non abrasive, but I don't see how that can possibly be true because I put it on after neglecting my finish for several months, and it felt noticeably smoother after two coats of Liquid Glass. Zaino claims that the shine gets deeper with multiple coats of Z2, but I've never been able to tell the difference. With Liquid Glass I found my car really did look a lot better after the second coat. This again could be a result of it doing some polishing. Why did I rate the shine the same as Zaino? Because the Zaino shine when the car's paint is in perfect shape is just as shiny. I think this is a better product to use when your car's finish is in good but not great shape to begin with. This is available at Schuck's and other local auto supply stores.

Liquid Glass 5 high 0 low
Application 5
Removal 5
Longevity 2
White Powder 5
Static 5
Shine 4

I used Liquid Glass in the past on the fire trucks. Many of the younger guys at the station swear by it. Drawbacks $$ , longevity. Zaino lasts a long time and layering definatly makes a difference. Z5/Z2 on FIREM, the more costs the better.

Looks like you are correct. Zaino reviews say it last twice as long as LG.

For what its worth to you Duds, one of my cousins tried Liquid Glass on his jet black Mustang. The very first time he used it, the shine was truly amazing. Problem is, the 2nd, 3rd and subsequent applications just kept getting worse and worse. Eventually he had to use a wax stripper and fine grit polish to get all the Liquid Glass off.
The first time he used it, it was awesome, but I don't think he used it right. He either didn't get it properly applied (too thick) the 2nd time and might have tried too hard to get the shine back.
who knows.....

I used it several time on a couple of cars-amazing finish each time. First time I used it on a 79 Cordoba I had after I machine buffed it, the beads after I waxed it where very tiny and came right off when you drove it. Finish was just awsome, would not waste it on the shitty paint on my Trep right now-after I get it painted(hopefully next year) I'll used it again.

It is possible he put on to thick a coat the first time, and the 2/3rd coats could have caused the first coat to re-soften enough to smear and destroy the shine.. Or he didn't let it harden up just enough...

Used it 3 times last weekend at Carlisle. Saturday night it rained and with all the cars in the parking lot it beaded the same as everyone elses car. The shine is about as good as anything else I have tried...... so........ it it does not last any longer than all the other brands it is hardly worth it. It is very easy to use though.

I like it. It is the only thing I have used on the special since I bought it. Haven't really tried anything else in a long time.

Try giving Turtle Wax ICE a try. I did and was very impressed (and thats the fact that I have a Black car). I have used Meguiars Liquid Wax, their Paste Wax, and now I tried ICE and I really like it. Its very convienent because u can put it on when the suns out....u dont have to worry about white flakey residue, and it doesnt take much to apply a coat on your vehicle. Takes this advice for what u think its worth but seeing as how I have a black I have done a lot of research about polishing/waxing. The only other thing I want to try to that has caught my attention is Meguiars Next Generation Wax (I think thats the name)

Hope that helps :wink:

I like the Ice just because it is clear. Did not seem to last to long though. I have some of the Next Gen I will turn you onto at Tom's if I come. :smokin:

That I do know, but I just enjoy the occasional glossy look you can get from a wax, and the smoothness after applying it... Once I get my transmission fixed, I plan on getting a good paint job...

Well Chrales maybe here I can help u out. May I direct your attention to the black Special below. That is an 02' and my dailt driver in Chicago winter. Now I dont know bad your paint is but I can tell u that a good pressure wash, a clay bar treatment, M105, M205 cutting compound by Meguiars, swirl X scratch remover by Meguiars, a good polish, and then a wax on top of that WILL RESTORE your paint to almost brand new!!! Use a high speed buffer when using the cutting compound and buffing out the polish and wax.

It will be a lot of work I'm not gonna lie, but afterwards the paint will feel smoother then u have ever remember feeling!
