Hi Suds!

Thanks for the email.

Our product which is most like a Glaze would be our newest addition, Cloak.

It's a true glaze, very similar to what you're used to, except this cures in one go rather than a few swipes.

I've got plenty in stock and it's in our 3 for 2 sale too!

Thank you, John

If you can find a bottle on the cheap... Meguiars Paint Protect (the red varnish one) might be worth a go.

It clearly has oils in it... and I've just used it to bring back a plastic green patio chair that was chalky white all over.

Won't say it's perfect but the difference between it and an untreated one is night and day. No idea if it has any longevity, but might be worth a go. It offers protection a swell.

I was also trying to get hold of some Megs #7 in an attempt to restore my mates incredibly faded Merc, searching through the forums for an alternative 'oily' glaze and some folks were recommending 3M Imperial?? - anyone got experience or inputs on this?

There is also Mother's glaze under sealer glaze and hand glaze product names.

3M Imperial Hand Glaze. Proper old school glaze, I had no idea this stuff is still around. It is different to Megs No7 though

Whilst I will happily recommend the Megs No7 product all day long for neglected and old single stage paints, it should be pointed out it is perfectly possible to restore older paints without it.

It is an amazing product however all the usual steps eg polishing can be done without it

the nearest you will get to megs #7 is stage 2 pure polish in there 3 stage system ( there the ones in the dark red bottles). have used it a few times with great results. only about a tenner a bottle as well.

had a bit of a tidy up at the weekend and found 2 sample bottles that had been in there for so long that the labels had lost all ink. All I could make out was a #7 on one of them and #21 on the other. Guessing one of them is this one.

Not used any of either so might give them a test out next time (although doubtful they'll do much on silver.

I was going to suggest this, unless the formula has changed in the last few years, they were pretty similar products back in the day. The Step 1 and 2 were really good in this system, only let down by the terrible wax.

If you're in the UK mate I'm happy to post you this sample of #7 I've got if you want it. You're more likely to make some use of it than I am.

PM me if you want it.
