THICKEST GLAZE - I mean THICK!!

Hey guys
Im after an opinion on the thickest glaze you know of. Ive got some really deep scratches I want to get rid of by hiding). Why choose a glaze? Well its easy to apply and I have already got ride of ALL of my deep scratches with :

Meguiars Endurance Tyre Gel

Really unbelievable how well it works i went round the car, saw a dirty big scratch one wipe and it was invisible to the eye!

However the next day, sure enough the dust was attracted like bees to honey. .and its greasy as hell but what a brilliant product for scratches i thought.

Ive got NXT, ultimate wax, etc. doesnt come close for hiding.

So my question then, what glaze is the thickest and is made to be used on bodywork? and wont attract dust

P.s.
Meguiars Endurance Tyre Gel is amazing on plastics too, my grey faded scratched plastics now look new!

Hmm Meguires tyre gel used on bodywork, that's got to be the daftest idea ever (sorry)

As for Glaze i highly rate R222 gloss enhancing paintwork cleaner, might not be thick but it can be layered to help fill minor scratches and give high levels of gloss before waxing,or using your ultimate wax which is a sealant.

Really deep scratches need polishing by machine if there is enough clearcoat left.

I'd like to see the state of your clothes if you brush against a car covered in tyre gel.

I've read this a few times now and still want to know what made you try that

Your never gonna hide really deep scratches unfortunately. There are lots of glazes out there that will hide very light swirling as stated above but dont expect miracles from a glaze.

Haha yep, brilliant at hiding scratches terrible at repelling dirt...though when you wash the car next time it spreads everywhere again and you get that great finish again haha.

Keeps shoppers from rubbing up my car

No, seriously though not ideal for a long term solution but id like a decent glaze really.

Crazy

Megs tyre gel is a solvent based gel, not one I would put near tyres let alone paint, your leaving a solvent to soak in to your paint !

Hydrotreated Light Petroleum Distillates
White Mineral Oil (Petroleum)

They are the 2 solvents in the gel, not to be left on paint, especially if its on the soft side !

I have to show you, ill do some pics. Why did i do it? by mistake.... first time i got some on my bumper by accident... then kept going.. and the plastics went like new. So, it became my go-to for plastics as back to black was rubbish!

So, as i did the plastics on the volvo i got some on the bodywork by mistake just in the section where the scratches were that are really really bad and they disappeared! Literally dissappeared completely.. i went woah! grabbed the girlfriend for verification she went round her TT and her scratches dissappeared too and looked great!
