Anyone here, besides me, still use this product? For it being an old school product, it sure can hang with todays more modern paint sealants.

I've used it in the past some 30 years ago however, for it's price, I didn't think it was better than other products. I paid ~ $18 years ago. How much is it today?

I still have some and use it (received it as a gift). Works pretty good, though I would never have bought it myself.

My Dad used it back in the 70's. I have not seen it in years. I never hand wax a vehicle. Whatever wax the car wash sprays on it is good enough for me.

The only waxes we use are Nuwax "once a year" and Color Magic(blue) wax, but that stuff is [censored] hard to find in the U.S., probably some stupid EPA [censored].

I used Liquid Glass back in the 80's and early 90's. Stepped up to the newest and hottest waxes and sealants. Just this past year I got a can of Liquid Glass. Stuff works as well as any of the other high priced sealants that I used to use. I wax every six months. Liquid Glass still beads at the six month mark. Keeping it simple is my plan going forward.

Liquid Glass is a good product but of course there are better options nowadays like Zaino and Blackfire.

I have a container of this. It sure does wonders on dark paint.
I have never tried ZAINO, but always wanted to. Is it as good, or better than BLACKFIRE?

If you guys haven't used F11 you missed the easiest shine I have ever used! Plus it never turns any trim white, terrific stuff...

I've used it years ago with good results. I got it at a good price though. IMO there are better products for the same money, maybe less.

Used it for years with great results. Stopped using it a couple years tried a number new products. Then went back to using it as my basecoat and then applying Collinite Liquid Insulator Wax #845 over top. Maybe not what most would do but it has been working well for me.

Good stuff but I always found it hard to work with until I used the pre-cleaner first.

https://www.amazon.com/Liquid-Glass-Pre-Cleaner-8-oz/dp/B0007ZDRT4

This stuff does a great job of cleaning the surface which makes Liquid Glass easier to apply/remove, but I'm with others here, there are other products that are easier to work with for a lot less money.
