    Different products.

    Ultima UPGP is a WOWA, or whatever you call the spray and wipe sealants.

    Four Star UPP is a traditional wipe on, haze, wipe off.

    I still have two bottles of the Klasse twins I bought circa 2006 and actually found a bottle of 3M Hand Glaze collecting dust next to a bottle of Collinite 845.

    As for a few others mentioned here, I have some Prima Amigo as well, and recently gave away the last of my Duragloss 253. I gave it away, not because I didn`t want it, but my daughter needed it for her car. I`ll probably buy another bottle as soon as my current supply of PERL runs out.

    It`s amazing how my use of coatings has really changed the products I use. I no longer have a need for glazes like Amigo and sealants last forever because I only apply them to my wheels vs being applied to entire vehicles every six months.

    Re: Products You Don`t Hear Too Much About Anymore...

    I`m surprised that so many of my go-to products got mentioned! I was expecting more obscure stuff like Malm`s.

    I don`t hear much about Autoglym or Pro.

    acuRAS82- Noting that you`re getting some results that differ from mine...4 Star UPP is something I *really* wanted to like (ease-of-use, looks, slickness that`s off the scale), but it`s protection against bugs/birds etching the paint is simply nil. Like nothing on there at all where protection is concerned IME (got the etching to prove it )...and it sure needs redone a lot compared to my other LSPs. I keep thinking I`ll redo the S8 with something else...probably oughta (if I ever get it out of mothballs). Still like it..it`d make a good LSP for...I dunno...a museum or something.

    BudgetPlan1- I`ve mentioned before how my beloved aunt Irene switched to RainDance (from M07 + M16) as her health failed. It wasn`t bad stuff as `70s-`80s Cleaner Waxes go, though you did have to keep it off trim. It was my second-fave Cleaner Wax (after the stuff from Pro, forget the #, we called it "Pro Blue" as it was blue while their straight wax was yellow).

    In comparison, ArmorAll`s Cleaner Wax was incredibly abrasive! For something that came out when b/c paint was just catching on it could be...problematic.

    Heh heh, my Klasse twins (and most of my 845) are a *lot* older than that, and still working great

    It`s amazing how many other products I`ve kept around that long went bad in the bottle, but Klasse never seems to age. Mine might be a bit older but only by a year or two and probably nowhere near the age of yours. I only know I quit using One Grand Blitz Wax somewhere around 2003~2006 and moved to Klasse because I got tired of having to wax my car every two months.

    Duragloss and 845 are my go-to products. I always top DG or 845 with a spritz of AW and, very often lately, Bead Maker, every week or two. I`m a big fan of spray waxes and gloss enhancers (BM).

    Rain Dance was a `cleaner wax`? Had no idea ...nor did I even know what a cleaner wax was. Fortunately there really wasn`t much black plastic on the cars we were using it on but it didn`t much like gray primer either; at least one panel was always in primer because, well `race car`

    Who had money for paint when ya hadda spend your $2.65/hr minimum wage on Hooker/Hedman/Blackjack headers and Thrush glasspacks?

    B/F Goodrich Radial T/A tires slathered in ArmorAll...good to go!

    Our brains woulda popped if someone conjured up a thing of Gyeon CanCoat back then..."What is this magic?

    I don’t hear much about Valugard and its ABC decontamination system any more although it remains my number one way to decontaminate and prep a car.
    Treat it like it`s the only one in the world.

    Lonnie, Presta is a somewhat popular brand in the auto body/paint shop industry. I know someone who uses it regularly with a rotary.
