    Is this weird? Still works the same! I was just surprised...
    I guess itís a notch below honey Product Recommendation



    The Gold Glass scent brings back memories of way back. Good suds. Good stuff.

    I just wish Gold Class cleans well; it didn't for me but that was over 20 years ago or so
    Treat it like it's the only one in the world.

    So true. That's why I started the thread for my new polishing equipment asking about pads and such. Recommendations from folks with KNOWLEDGE that I do not yet have. We can recommend products but for each one, if no/little prior experience, much explaining will need done in person

    YouTube is also great for at least getting some "classroom" time in. Nothing beats hands-on of course.

    Sounds like you guys could have a great time together and he will more than likely appreciate the effort to teach on your part.

    I have used it for 15+ years and finally came to the conclusion that it DOESN"T clean that well

    It is awesome on a dusty car because to me it is so slick and has so many protectants in that the mitt glides over the paint and you would have to try to scratch it

    Having said that, anything more bonded than loose dust is a bit of a challenge

    I honestly loved it in Alaska more than here in Hawaii and it may simply be down to differences in the water

    Water in both places is rock hard but in Alaska it was well water and here it's a municipal water system

    Obviously it is possible they changed or "improved" it because others still seem to like it but I will be sending back some stronger stuff when I return from the holidays

    The kid has not had a fatherly presence for much of his life. I was thinking it would be nice to give him something to maintain the car as gift, and perhaps infect him with the detailing disease.

    His mother is getting him a few things for Christmas (on my recommendations) so I had intentions of something like P&S Bead Maker or Paint Gloss. I know Bead Maker can be a bit tricky to use and considering his lack of experience I don't want to discourage him, hence the thought of Paint Gloss as it's easier to work with.

    Any thoughts or suggestions welcomed.
    Apologies for getting away from your original question

    Unless the mom is planning on getting an LSP based on your input, maybe that would be a good foundation product for him (no pun intended)

    Your selections may be limited in OZ but how about a good OTC product like Hybrid Solutions or something where he can stay with a family of products as his knowledge base grows

    This is something I learned about this year. The soaps I've been using seem to clean, but they really don't. They're great for getting dusty stuff off as you had mentioned (pollen!!), but anything other than that and I've found myself really rubbing over spots to get them off. That's an unsettling feeling to me. Without applying pressure, I'm not sure I could ever get some of the more stubborn things off just by gliding a mitt over it. Maybe I could, but it would take like 3x as long to wash my car.

    I guess it's time for Hyper Wash? Soaps that are good detergents and can actually CLEAN don't necessarily remove LSP or things like that, right?

    I agree 100%

    Iím going to try Hyperwash as well

    I hate spot cleaning paint with an AP spray or the equivalent if I can avoid it

    I do pretreat with a real strong soap mix if I see spots ahead of time but I donít always catch them and I donít like spraying on my drying aid only to see something I missed

    Thatís happening too often with Gold Class

    Based on what I have read here Hyperwash is strong but still considered a maintenance wash and shouldnít strip waxes and sealants

    If anyone thinks differently please speak up
