I really like The Junkman. He can be very long winded at times, but he is entertaining and he has has good information. And, somehow he manages to get his points across without resorting to four letter words. Do a YouTube search for "Junkman" or "Junkman2000."

My 68 El Camino Malibu and my 68 El Camino SS. In 1968 I got my 1st 66 Chevelle SS. 30 years later, I got my 2nd. Both Chevelles are in the same location.

The bottle label in your left picture is the one I remember.

I tried the 3M hand glaze and that wax and it looked pretty good but, when it sat in the sun, it looked like the wax melted and left an oily like film?

Re: OK...I`ll be first.

The snow is melting around here so the day is coming soon when I will have to perform the time-honored tradition of clay bar followed by wax. I used to use Liquid Glass on my black daily driver but they aren't bringing it in anymore. Last year I visited The Chemical Guys and came out of there with their Black Light glaze, designed to make scratches visually disappear. I use it once at the start of the season, then seal it up with The Chemical Guys - Black Luminous Glow Infusion. Because it is a daily driver and is in all kinds of weather, including stretches of being salt-covered, then ice on top that needs to be removed, I will re-apply the Black Luminous Glow Infusion about once a month (when possible) because I am a freak.



The car is a 2010 and has over 250,000 kms (155,000 miles) and I have no plans on replacing it anytime soon. It is a 6-speed manual and has loads of room, so finding a replacement is doubtful. I am serious about keeping my cars in top shape and in service for a long time

Tim, I never had that problem. Although, the vette didn't sit in the hot sun very often.

3M Imperial hand glaze used to work great. Gave up on it many years ago, product did not seem the same as in the mid/late 90's
