Glare UK to cease trading

Sad day to hear Glare UK is to cease trading on line as from tomorrow I really rate their Pro Polish
While stocks last Phil will still be trading at Shows

Gutted tbh

Love the stuff and can't rate it highly enough, but stocking up before he sells out will cost me a fortune

Lol

I've got nearly two bottles of all four polishes so should be enough to be going on with!

I've been thinking about getting this to try out. I have a Honda Civic so very soft paint.

I did a machine polish earlier this year but the swirls come back so quickly. Could be down to my technique of course but wondering if this could be worth getting before it's too late.

I think Shiny uses it on his black Accord Type R but not 100% sure. If I could get my car half as good as that I would be delighted.

I had a blue civic and glare worked a treat on it
I'd highly recommend before Philip sells out to pick up a 4 pack!

Definitely worth picking some up. Shiny does indeed use Glare on his Type R - here's the thread where he first gave it a go, and another here.

You can see some more results from using Glare here.

Edit more Glare threads from my "Subscribed" folder on the topic:

Just want to mention that Glare-UK aren't closing due to problems or issues with the product itself, it the general costs to buy and import from the USA and it being a niche product it sold in small quantities making the growing costs unbearable. The website is now no longer taking orders so should anyone require any, do contact me via DW or email and I'll make sure you get an excellent deal.
Also a big thanks to all those who bought and supported me on the project, really appreciated it.
