Guys

I know this is going to be a long shot, but is there anyone on the forum that’s heard of a decent polish to remove paint surface swirls ?

I’ve searched, and searched until my fingers tips were bleeding on my keyboard, but with no success. :cry:

Has anyone got Warrens contact number, as I’ve heard a rumour that he’s the man on all things shiny?:)


Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Meguiars products are all very good, always use them, first 'found' them when I was showing my SS100 (Jaguar)

Here ya go mate...............


Carnauba wax is carnauba wax whether or not you pay 10 dollars for 8 oz's or 100 dollars its still the same carnauba wax. Polymer synthetic wax is a step up from Carnauba but still old technology when compared to the new products that are being produced. Lets put it this way, Carnauba wax was used to polish the horse and buggy (well not the horse but the buggy LOL!), and Carnauba wax is highly acidic, melts in direct sunlight cuz it has a very low melting point and when it does this it speeds up the oxidation process of the paint by superheating and frying the paint. Polymers (like Teflon) were introduced in the 60's. They are a step above Carnauba wax but still not as good as Glassplexin. Polymers don't filter out UV rays and they can crack fade and peel within 1 years time. Also Polymer wax has a low melting point, granted its not as low as carnauba wax, but its no where near GLARE's. GLARE is good up to 650 degs F so you can polish your exhaust pipes and it wont burn off. Try that with carnauba wax or synthetic wax and see what happens. I'll give you a clue, it doesn't look or smell good at all. LOL! GLARE with Glassplexin is the only product out there that actually bonds to the clearcoat or paint via, what's called in chemistry, a covalent bond. Waxes and polymers do not bond to paint molecularly. They only lay on top of the paint and do not last.
Glassplexin is a negatively charged silicate ionic compound that has chemical reactivity with the clearcoat or paint. When applied there is an exchange of electrons that occurs between the negative charged Glassplexin and the paint or clear coat bonding the two into one molecule. This transformation gives the paint a new chemical identity that now shares the properties of both paint and glass. Because of this, the newly transformed paint has a depth of gloss that is so optically clear that the gloss looks 3 dimensional. Not only that but the surface tension is increased, the new paint surface is super slick, and because it now shares glass properties it will filter UV rays because glass will filter out 98% of the suns UVA and UVB rays. There are test reports from Labs all over the world on this product including from HONDA.
This is all information I learned from doing research on polishes and waxes since I am so anal about what I use on my bikes and cars. I mean if you still want to use old inferior wax products then go for it. But 10 years down the road when your paint looks dingy and oxidized after applying so many coats of stuff that melts and ruins your paint and the other guy who used GLARE on his bike has a bike that looks better then the day that he bought it you will kick yourself in the pants. That's why I chose very carefully what I use and if I had a $20,000 bike (which I will very shortly and I cant wait ) then I would make sure that I use the absolute best and without a doubt after trying everything out there and I mean EVERYTHING I would never use anything but GLARE.
If Mitch Lanzini from Overhaulin uses GLARE on the custom FOOSE design Hot Rods that FOOSE has him paint in light of the fact that Mother's is paying FOOSE millions to endorse their product, that should tell you what the best product for your MV is.
It doesn't cost $100 a bottle but its not the cheapest product out there either. I believe it goes for around $30 for a 12 oz. bottle, but I know from personal experience that it is a very concentrated product and I get about 3-4 small cars out of one bottle so IMHO its well worth every penny. Let's put it this way you CANT NOT afford not to use it given the benefits vs the price of the one bottle. Did I mention that they also have the best swirl removing product, called GLARE Spider, I've ever used as well? Well they do. These chemists over there are on a roll. Also the GLARE Professional Polish can be used on not only the paint but also on Carbonfiber, glass, plastic, plexiglass, the clear windshields on bikes, Fiberglass, Aluminum, Chrome, and all metal alloys. The GLARE Turbo Action Wheel Cleaner is also another superb product from them. I use it for cleaning the brakedust, road grime, and chain grease sling and its a non acid base formula so you can use it without worying about if its going to damage the finish of your wheels or paint. Its also an Awesome product from GLARE!!! Everything they make is the best hands down!!!

Glare is the Amsoil of the wax world.
CAG

What's Amsoil ?

Is this some sought of urinary incontinence treatment ?

Do they offer Gynecologist advice to strengthening vaginal muscles ?

All advice is much appreciated..

Sorry, must dash for a :piss:


( PS: Hasn't anyone ever wondered why this emoticon urinating is of a Cat standing up with what appears to be human behaviour skills .. Weird or what !!)

I've had good luck with Griot's Fine Hand Polish. Not sure how deep your swirl marks may be into the clearcoat though. Could be iffy with any polish.

Doh !

Andrew.

The whole things was just a silly little sarcastic dig at the forum for not listening to the pleas of Roy ( F41NXS) to be removed from this site..

Everywhere you looked on the forum there was this advertisement for feckin GLARE, and although it was funny ( nice one Roy) it got tedious.

I decided to start a thread in the hope of taking the Mickey out of the situation, but it ended up back firing somewhat when kind forum members started posting useful advise.. Sorry Chaps for the childish joke, but there was no real harm done...

Andrew.. On a serious note, I only use AutoGlym products on my bikes.. Have for many years, and their range seems to cover most paint finish needs.

Cheers mate

To explain the joke (and ruin it), many years ago some salesman for Glare joined the forum and started posting endless crap about it. The poster was banned but rejoined under various alts (but usually the same IP address), always denying he was employed by the company.

It turned into a MV meme.
