Glare Micro Finish

Just bought myself a Honda Civic so want to get back into the Glare products.

I have Spider and Pro Polish but the car is brand new and paint is in pretty good condition. Do I need to get myself Micro Finish and use that instead of Spider?

They have been sat in the garage a few years so hopefully are still ok to use!

Thanks,

Ben

I'm a fan of Glare.

Without pics it's a bit difficult to say but since Glare can be layered why not try the same sort of process as if you were using a "normal" polish? i.e. start with the least aggressive first so see how she looks with Pro Polish.

If that's not really doing it for you then target the "worst" bit with Spider and top off with Pro Polish and see how that goes.

If it's still not doing it for you then you may well need Micro but I'd give it a go with what you've got first. After all it's not like you're polishing away the clearcoat!

Can't really see why they would degrade while sat in a bottle (assuming indoors, not frozen/cooked in a shed).

I'm sure others will be along shortly with their views.

Let us know how you get on.

Good Luck.

Andy.

Thanks Andy.

Does the professional polish fill then? I was under the impression you had to use something before it like spider or micro.

I have done a lot of reading today and most people recommend micro before pro polish, not sure why I didn't get some before!

Hi Ben.

Just a suggestion.

It's not Glare but Detailing Kingdom Finale is an excellent one step polish for new paintwork like yours.

Next Cut 1.1 is also superb.

Thanks Neil. I think I've actually got a sample of that somewhere.

I want to use a filler if possible and keep as much clear as I can. The paint seems very soft!

Had stunning results with Detailing Kingdom products
Have a lot of experience with Glare products their cutting products are all pretty low on cut
Glare or Glare+ need to be worked in really hard
first coat by Dual action final coat a mean skinny coat by hand left to dry for hour if all done right will come off easily with Microfibre

Managed to source a bottle for £20. Anyone know what they retailed at previously?

Wouldn't mind finding some knockout now to complete the set!

Do you have Spider Andy?

I got mine out last night and it seems to separate quite quickly after a good shake. I remember it was the same when I bought it. Does yours do that?
