Uncle Paul Liquid Glass had to change their name to Liquid First Class when they lost a lawsuit claiming that there was no actual Glass in their formulation :-)

They were the first to use lighter fluid on fire to indicate how tough it was, and a can sliding down off the hood to show how slick. They used to go to a junk yard and find a distressed hood and demonstrate how even a "Junkyard car" can shine again. Marketing tricks still used today to sell wax and polish.


The amazing thing about Liquid First Class is how much better even their great shine can get by applying additional coats.

wiseman007 I've heard of this one, and only good opinions.

henrywilson I think Liquid glass is much better, I've covered my car with that and as far as I know it last longer than wax

Racejaw I use Collinite SUPER DOUBLECOAT
Last Step Paste Wax

It's a company that made marine wax back in 1936, what's harder on surfaces than salt water?
They also make automotive wax too. I was tipped off about this company by a professional detailing company...he said no many people know about it except people in the detailing business.

So, I have been using it on all my cars for years and it looks great / holds up to time and elements.

Give it a try, you won't be disappointed just impressed!

4x4 Viper I use Nxt Gen Tech wax too, and agree it is easy on, easy off and it looks great.

For those that like the results of the PS21, but would like to spend about 1/2 as much.....do what I do and go to a Harley dealer or Harley dealer web-site and buy some S100. It is the exact same wax, but relabeled for the biker guys who wouldn't pay $30+ for PS21

As for the my personal preference, I use NXT as my base protectent and a coat of S100 on top of it. The NXT provides the longer protection and the carnauba-based S100 adds back some of the depth you lose with a synthetic alone.

Lastly, for a detailer...I have tried about 8-10 brands and the best by far I have ever used is "Wizard".

bigmike32172 I have a multi step wax that kicks ass, the only downfall is you have to apply it every day
August 1st, 2007 09:00 PM
Zan186 I tried a bunch and have found the Zaino to be what I prefer. Gives that deep down wet look. Knowing that the protection lasts longer than Carruba Wax is just a great bonus!

Richie-SRT10 Zaino wax is like Mr Zaino, a real pain in the ass to work with
August 1st, 2007 07:06 PM
ViperJon It's a trade off usually.
Deepest shine a high quality carnuba wax (like Pinnacle). Easy on, doesn't have to dry can be wiped right off. Downside, doesn't last long. The syntetics have come a long way, almost as good a shine (not quite as deep) but last much longer.

I've used them all. Currently been using the butter wax from Adams polishes: Car Wax, Car Polish, Auto Detail Supplies - Adam's Polishes - Polish & Wax. Goes on easy, looks great so far so good can't really tell you about the durability. Side note, the Adams detail spray is the absolute best I have ever used. NO residue, cleans great smells great.

Personally I enjoy waxing so I couldn't care less how long it lasts. I like to be able to do the whole car on and off in an hour...and go take a ride. Once or twice a month is no problem.

BAD68GTO Tried Zaino and looking for 1 step ot 2 step things now. I used Meguires (spelling?) and been happy. I'd love to get it done professionally, but they would probably scratch my car like the dealership that did my warranty work-lol. Thus far I used three dealerships for DC warranty work, and two scrathed my car where it needed a panel repainted. Same with tow trucks two for two scratching it, so I do my own work when possible but I am always looking for the nice wax.

On the wax note, for any of you folks that drive yours often, how often do you wax? I wax only 3 times a year myself, so when I wax it isn't fun for me with road crap needing to get waxed off. Mine is inside my garage, but I drive it 7K miles a year since I work @ home.

Hamrhead I've been using Mother's Reflections Polish for a few years now on numerous black vehicles and am very happy with the results.

Also have a can of Liquid Glass which is equally as good.


Really don't have time or patience for multi-step applications anymore.

I agree, waxes are a thing of the past and do not have any durability or hold up to heat well at all. Definitely Zaino for me.

dans69ss P21 for me too! Will give it a shot.

Disturbed I use Nxt Gen Tech wax. Easy on, easy off and it looks great. It's been great so far. But I'll look into what your talking about.
July 10th, 2007 11:52 AM
btapp I personally love the P21 pure carnuba wax. Thanks for the lead though, I am going to give this a try.

Go to Top of the Line Auto Detailing Supplies
Very informative site and only way to get it.
You'll love it man.

Richie-SRT10 Thanks Woodz. . Your recommendation was good enough for me. I decided to check their site out and it was informative and I need to buy some ASAP.

From science...super-refining and modern polymers. We start with #1 Grade Yellow Carnauba, then refine it a second time. This changes the wax's pale yellow color to ivory as the last remaining impurities are removed. The result is Ivory Carnauba, a super-pure wax with unsurpassed clarity. We use only Ivory Carnauba as a foundation for all our waxes. To this base of Ivory Carnauba, we add modern crystalline polymers. These super-hard polymers increase the wax's durability by resisting breakdown from acid rain and ultraviolet light. Month after month, your
vehicle will proudly display its Ivory Carnauba shine!
