A few threads knocking about on here about it

Quality products and no abrasives (other than Glare Micro)
Another one here for Glare Professional think you can now only buy it off eBay

Machine application is best as heat really helps it bond

A conversation with Savvyfox on here would be the best bet, he used to be Mr Glare when it was distributed over here.
If not the glare-uk website may still be up, and may have a contact page.
Talk to him direct through there for advice on pads/application

So, gave the car a clean this morning. Snow foam, shampoo rinsed, did the carrier bag test and no lumps or bumps so went straight to polishing after drying. Had some slight issues with the SRP, only did one panel at a time, but after buffing off with a Eagle edgless towel could still see faint lines in when I looked at the paintwork from a different angle. When I rubbed it with my finger, it went. So changed towels and buffed better but not easy. Then I waxed with R222 which I was very pleased with. Also did the wheels. So, happy with R222 but not so with the SRP., mind I was doing it by hand so I expect I would get better results with a DA

You might need a MF towel with a bit more "bite" to take off the SRP.

Maybe something like this:

Some try just a hint of Quick Detailer.

There's many alternatives to SRP once you've finished the bottle if you're still not happy with the results. Do a search when you're ready - be aware there may be much worse choices for you as well. SRP is a solid, reliable and much used and respected product.

May I suggest being careful not to end up with a shed full of barely touched products. Give what you've got a decent chance for you to learn its strengths and weaknesses before jumping ship to the next "better" product - only to find you can't tell the difference.

Good Luck.

Andy.

Andy is dead on about the cloth, sometimes you will find that products will need a little more effort in removal and a change of cloth can really help make the difference.

If I have polished and am struggling with removal of residue then I give my MF a light spray with QD and that solves the issue.
I sometimes find I do that anyway just for the ease of removal.

Have a word with Savvyfox about Glare, I used it again today for a scratch on a Nissan, forgot how damn good it is.
