I am a longtime user of Glare products here"s my views
You can use any preferred preparation product to correct your paint
Glares own products are good but very light on cut so you end up if you persevere with a very smooth reflective surface, but a lot of work.
The sealant must be applied sparingly and worked in really well
If you start on the bonnet you will quickly get the hang of it .
Your on the right track if its really easy to wipe off the residue
Now 1 more very light top coat quick light pass leave it on for upto an hour
Then buff off again if it comes off easily that"s perfect
Applying by machine makes it a lot easier to get the hang of.
The finish should bead in light rain and sheet over time .
If you favor beading as i do Gyeon Wet Coat lasts well for a couple of months for a quick wipe over
The good thing is at anytime you can reapply a top coat of Glare for a fresh feel
Multi coating does not keep adding depth of product the new coat will simply remove the previous coat after about 3 top coats.
I wait half an hour between final coats remember little residue means that layer is dry
this product was originally formulated for hot climates this time of year apply it in a garage no colder than 5 degrees preferably above 10
hope this is useful to you

Thanks for this. When re-applying the Pro polish do you use anything to remove LSPs (like eg the Gyeon you mention) or do you just apply directly to whatever is there?

Usually wait a few weeks so you can see Gyeon Falling away
Glare has cut in it so it will remove itself plus whats ontop but not the seal coat
to remove this a meduim pad and good cut the surface will be squeeky clean
I suppose this high lights the different people who use DW
As a professional you want a product that gives results and value to a client,
as an enthusiastic its almost an obsession and you need your fix
Using Glare as i suggest allows you todo that if its a sunny day top it up just because you want to
What i have found in the real world is with a regular wash routine Glare will last 3 years plus but will lose gloss and obviously will need claying.
so am i contradicting myself No
If you look at a Glared car after a couple of years of purely a wash routine
It would have lost gloss and feel why because the surface tension changes.
But if the car is lightly dirty the inherent shine is fighting through the dirty
so my solution is in my maintenance schedule I will apply a skinny coat once or maybe twice a year to rekindle upper gloss and surface feel
What i have had issues with are where clients put other products on top or use car wash with added wax so im very anti this course of maintenance

i personally wouldn't bother as the pro does everything I need it to do but if feel you want a waxed finish give it a minimum of a day to fully cure.

I assume you have a sizeable personal stash of Pro polish then?

Would glare be good for getting rid of holograms on my soft Nissan paint? Is it forgiving to use as I’ve never used a machine before?
