Ignorance is bliss for too many people today. Sorry you have no sense of humor. You seem to have a beef with several members on this forum, yet you've owned a Sportster for only one year. That does not bode well for the future. Lighten up a bit.

I know that was a lot to hope for...
Check out DKCustoms on this forum. He's used it and has several posts and pics on it.

I just started using meguiars hybrid ceramic liquid on my softail. I really like it. Too soon to say how long it lasts but I'm sure it's longer than I need it to.
I like it better than any other liquid or paste I've used. It goes on and buffs out easier and doesnt seem to attract dust like other waxes. No dried up white shit flying around when buffing it out either.
I polished with meguiars mirror glaze swirl remover. Then used the show car glaze for the deep, wet look and sealed it in with the ceramic. Black is a bitch and I'm quite pleased with the results. Real deep shine.

I've been working a couple nights a week at an auto parts store closing for them and get 25% off and just tried it a couple days ago when it was in the 70s. It was in need of a good wax anyway and thought I'd try it. I swear you can almost feel the coating. We've got the spray too but I haven't tried that.

when you find liquid glass, buy it. it's been around for a long time and is amazing. probably won't find it at wally's.
