I have abused a few panels that its been applied to, with ipa, panel wipe, tardis and general chemicals, still to this point its withstood them all
@stangalang, don't know if you've ever put a coating over a Glare'd car?

I presume its the Silver/Beige one from Lexus Stockport that's popped up on the Owners Club?

If so, I polished my old RX (same shape as his) with Sonax EX04-06 and LC pads. Was an absolute doddle TBH. Then just coat it with CquartzUK or similiar.

Hehe it's a good shout but no, he bought it privately in West Yorkshire somewhere, the paint is black with a strong blue fleck in it, not sure of the exact colour name.

What grade of LC pad did you use on yours?

Glare

Have a lot of experience with Glare
Don't waste your time with ceramic , if you have worked first coat in really well then put a second or third seal coat .
The ceramic will not bond properly
What I have found to work is Gyeon Wet Coat sits well and lasts a couple of months
Alternatively just buy some Glare car wash it adds a small amount in the wash bucket and keeps the finish topped up

Thanks for that. If I end up using Glare for my brother's Lexus presumably normal sealants will bond ok to it? Thinking of things like Sonax NPT which is supposed to be good for six months. On my own car I've been putting wax on the Glare'd panels, and wiping down with panel wipe to remove the wax if I wanted to top up the Glare.

The correct answer is don't bother putting anything on top because your applying a system and bt definition it shouldn't grip to the surface
But this is more about how we feel so I say apply what you like have a big smile
sorted 😀😄
