Liquid Glass sealant and matte black stripes

I know that there has been may posts on the best wax/polish on the site but I am very interested in liquid glass. I have a black on black with matte black stripe running the length of the car. Will this product ruin the matte black vinyl if you where to apply it to the stripe? If so, those that use it with a stripe, how do you keep from getting on vinyl?

I cant speak directly about liquid glass but every polish/ wax I have ever used did not do well on Matt Black stripes. I currently leave a little buffer 1/2" or so where I do not apply the wax to the car. When I wipe off I make sure to "spread" the residue close to the stripes but make sure not to hit them. I remember reading somewhere about a cleaner for the Matt Black stripes but you can search as easily as I can.

I use liquid glass. It is the best polish I have ever had. I have about 30 coats on my Race Red 2012 , and everywhere I go someone compliments the paint. BUT it is bad stuff if you get it on matte black parts and surfaces. It will come off the plastic rocker covers with alcohol and a toothbrush but if you get it on matte stripes or rubber window trim etc you will be in trouble. The instructions from the company say varsol will remove it but I didn't have much luck with that. Unbelieveable product though.

PS I did learn to be real careful with it. You might also consider taping off what you dont want to cover.

I love liquid glass. I use nothing else and get nothing but compliments as well. But, like randeez said it's a pain to get off anything but the paint. Which is funny, because it comes off the paint real easy. I wouldn't try it on the matte finish stripes. Although, I did have great luck with it on gloss finish stripes.

Where is Liquid Glass available anyway? I hear great things about it, but it seems unavailable everywhere online.

I'm currently using Zaino - but when I run out I'd like to try something else.

I use it as well, very good product. I get it out of the trim by using Mother's back to black and it works very well, I would not however get it on your matte blk strips. I like the fact it reacts to the sun (Baking) since their is allot of it here in AZ, 30 coats is impressive. I'm still working on it...about 22 coats!

I used Liquid Glass many years ago and it was a good product but as others have said is a PITA to get off of no-painted surfaces.

I use Turtle Wax Ice on my car and I have matte black 'hood spears' and the matte black vinyl blackout decal between my tailights. I

t works great on the paint, the matte black and ALL of the black trim on the car and leaves no white residue since it is a clear liquid.

I always get compliments about the paint on my car!

I believe you can get liquid glass off amazon.com. Also , there should be distributors that can mail it out to you. It is on ebay as well. Maybe some of the pepboys etc carry it ?

If you chose to use it. Get the precleaner also and cxlean your paint as required. You wouldnt want to put the liquid glass on over unwanted diirt.
