    Meguiar's #7 glaze

    Hello the experts,

    I have been told that the #7 mirror glaze is not safe for new cars paints.I have on hand this product and before using it maybe someone could help me. Apparently this product must stay on the car for a long period of time and not easy to remove.I know that this product does not offer any protection and must top it with a good wax.I also have XNT wax2.0 and want to use it over the glaze.Any suggestions? My car is a brand new Santa Fee and a paint sealant has already been applied and topped with a wax.
    Thanks in advance.

    This product is 100% totally and completely safe for use on any and all paint - old, new, factory, repaint, etc. On a brand new car fresh from the factory you may not see much of a difference when using it, and on lighter colors the effects of it are not as noticeable, but it is perfectly safe to use. You do not want to let it dry on the paint, however. Rather, you should lightly work it against the paint in small areas at a time, wiping off the residue while it's still wet. It is a heavy, oily product so wipe off is quite different from that of wiping off a hazed wax. Also, it is not a wax so it offers zero protection, and it's not a paint cleaner so it won't remove any defects like swirl marks, etc. It is a pure polish, so it essentially a gloss enhancer and you do need to apply a coat of wax after using it.

    Thank you very much Michael. Can I apply XNT2.0 wax after using the glaze because I have three bottles left.

    NXT 2.0 over #7 is a good combination. It will add even more depth and even add more pop to metallic paint, so go ahead and apply #7 before NXT 2.0, I even used it on silver and it improved the clarity of the metallic flakes and added a bit of depth that is hard to get on silver paints.

    Re: Meguiar's #7 glaze

    Here's one I've wondered about for a while. Once you put on the #7, it does have a very shiny appearance which I'm guessing is due, at least in part, to the polishing oils left on the paint. Should you assume that wax will form a good bond if you put it on immediately after? Or should you wash the car first? But then that would take off the polishing oils. I'm all such confused!

    You can wax right after polishing. Protect that shine as quickly as possible!

    Re: Meguiar's #7 glaze

    As far as meguiar's products is concerned, there will be no bonding issues when using one of their pure polishes or glazes before applying wax/pure wax. Other manufacturers require paint to be stripped down of any polishes/waxes that have been previously applied so that the paint will be sqeaky clean and ready for the coating/sealant/wax.

    If you feel a paint that's been treated with #7, you'll notice that the paint has a certain "tacky" feel that's not too oily. This "grabby" feel to me tells me that the wax to be applied will be easier to apply and will bond even better to the paint. In my experience, it didn't reduce the durability of the wax at all, I used it with NXT 2.0 tech wax with great results. In fact, I felt it improved the NXT 2.0's durability and the water is shed from the paint seems to have improved also.

    Each manufacturer has their own requirements or instructions on how their products must be applied or what preparation steps to take before applying a protective coating on paint.
