Cheat.

Good day,

Do as we do down here.

Go and take a sample of it to a chemist- and usually one that makes products similar. In the States, it may be called private label.

We get one bottle of whatever and knock it off. I'm awaiting a friend who is ordering that south'n shine to bring me some. A bottle purchased the legal channel method would cost me $50AUD, and take a month to get here.

We always have to resort to this and get the best products from EU and Asia as well- duplicate them and enjoy.

Get your friends together and try it! Cheers! Pete

Lightbulb What I've learned

Yes, It's been discontinued

That, as hard as it may seem, is true. Thanks in part, to the air quaility standards of the great state of CA...& the Federal Gov't.

The good news is that;
Several products have since come on the market to replace it.

Tom of "perfectpolish", sez..
"This product (NuImage) will be available in the very near future~!
Worth keeping an eye out for.."
ciao
BTW, I ordered my completed polishing kit yesterday from Perfect Polish...The wife insisted that, it be ordered~!~

How about this product? Saw it in Auto Week..

www.liquidglass.com


says- "no abrasives or harsh chemical. Liquid Glass - for all non porous surfaces including paintwork, clear-coat finishes, windshields, aluminum,chrome, brass.etc."

Sounds like an Airstreamers friend.

I bought Liquid Glass at Pep Boys, 17 bucks. A little goes a long way though.
I also got Mother's Wax remover( as they didn't have the liquid glass prep) to clean off the wax as specified on the liquid glass can directions. That was the harder part to do, I started yesterday on the roof. It has to be done in the shade, and then the glass stuff gets put on and is to bake in the sun afterward.
My front dome area was done with one coat, but I will add a second coat in a few days.
I can only report that so far it looks great, a terrific shine.
My main thing is to see how it will hold up and what the elements will do to it. Supposedly it is easy to clean crap off of.

I am also getting a canopy to protect the roof ..mainly from the tree sap/ bugs and sun.

Hope it all goes as planned.
