This looks very interesting, was this all done by hand?

Would you say this is a valid alternative to machine polishing?

For the hobbyists daily driver of course.

Yeah
Glare is the perfect alternative to traditional cutting correction

I did all the work with a DAS6 Pro and a polishing pad. Spreading the polish on speed 1, them working it in on speed 6.

You absolutely could do it by hand, although it would take longer to get the same results. But a firm polishing "puck" like the white Scholl one would take some of the strain out of it. They key with Glare is to use minimal amount of product and work it in as hard as you can.

I found this article on the web about using Glare:

http://www.webbikeworld.com/r3/swirl-remover/

They're using Spider followed by Pro. The thing to remember about Glare is that you always need to finish with at least one layer of Pro, which seals in the work you've done with the preceding stages. But as you can see by the illustrations, it does fill in the light "spider webbing", and the correction you can see there is in line with what I would expect from my own experiences using the system.

All that said, even a fairly "tame" DA eg the one Argos sell will help you cover more ground more effectively than you could by hand (and with less arm ache).

Thanks Steelghost

I've not come across this product before and was wondering if this was the miracle I was looking for, I was thinking I could get away with buying a DA.

I tried cleanser polish by hand on a couple of panels and it's too much hard work for me .

It looks like a DA is staying on the Christmas list then.

I had a go with Glare on my previous car and whilst i admit i do like it is quite time consuming.

I did something similar in that i gave it a quick whizz round with a normal polish to take the edge of a lot of the swirls and marks which helped a lot.

The finish of the glare and topped off with ADS Kostos was really really nice
