Jut thought i would put a few images up of something I'm working on still. The products are from Glare, they do a few different bottles, some readily available, some not. On this car i used knockout, micro, and two coats of pro polish
The info is tenuous at best, when trying to find genuine useful product knowledge. The manufacturers contradict themselves quite a lot, but in short these are a set of long term filling products, they create a covalent bond thus essentially making them permanent (the covalent bond is the second strongest attraction in our universe, behind the p!ss head and the kebab).
I can't really offer anymore than that, other than having tested them on various panels I've now completed a full black car, start to finish. The images are below





















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

Comments and questions welcome

Matt

Nearly got some of the Glare a year or so back.

Interesting to hear about these.
They are worth a play james if you can get at an affordable price, recommend having a go dude

always liked the glare stuff esp micro polish, some great work there Matt
Cheres dude. Micro was effective, its funny though each time I've used it we have started out underwhelmed, but after adding pro polish we have stepped back and all agreed its made a marked improvement. Still not too sure on knockout though

Nice flex bag Matt :lol:
one of many :D

In my view 'permanent' filler polishes would be the way to go to maintain a good paint finish on a daily. There is not an infinite amount of clear on paintwork and it seems this is getting even worse with new cars. It is not practical to keep a daily perfectly polished and it would soon wear through the paint so I'd definitely be a fan of a filler polish for my car. If the finish was a little worse than proper polishing I think it would still be worth it.

Interested to see how this goes Matt after chatting last.
I'm looking to use it on 2 Porsches this next month or so Scott so will keep you informed. Hopefully I will see them all sporadically and be able to update. Ive hit my panel a few more times with chemicals and it's still going strong, which is positive
