    Don't waste your money. It did very poorly in the Guru Report's Wax test-30th out of 46. It stopped beading after the 5th week and shine, clarity, etc were all just average. Apparently, it is a clone of Liquid Glass-similar smell, results, etc according to the test.

    They didn't test it, but I know a bunch of people on Autopia.org who've ordered Clearkote products and love them...in fact, two of them are now distributers!

    Just FYI, this is a limo I detailed using Vanilla Moose, Moose Wax and Quikshine (in that order) in the direct sun on a 70 degree day:

    And this is an F-250 that I used Moose Wax only on-in 38 degree weather!

    Excuse me? Photoshop? :slap:

    Nothing I post has ever been touched up in any way. I majored in photography (didn't stay long enough to get a degree though) and I know how to position the cars so they look their best, but no tricks are involved at all. Plus, print film still beats digital in quality.

    Scott, I didn't know that your pictures were taken traditionally. I guess I always assumed it was digital. :dunno:

    Photoshop! :slap: :rofl:

    Nikon N60, baby!

    Digital is convienent, but print film still gives superior quality. I have the put on a picture CD that I request be done at 100% resolution for best quality and then I resize and compress them using the free image optimizer from www.xat.com
