Yep, just your regular old swirl filler. :thumb:Ripsnort said:I'm not too familiar with the "Imperial hand glaze " but I'm assuming that is is a sort of paint cleaner that hides swirls marks, thus filling any small swirl marks or light scratches.
Note that 3M IHG has no abrasives and acts only as a filler. If you use a polymer system, you can't use 3M IHG before the polymer, you must have a clean surface. So ideally, here's what you would do:hillbilly bimme said:I have used Imperial hand glaze on my 330 ci with great results. How does clay differ and do either clay or glaze have abrasives that will harm your paint over a long period of time?
Yep, just used some McGuires #9 Swirl Mark Remover over the weekend before I Zainoed. That was more of a repair though than general paint preparation. My car is still new, so I have very few swirls or scratches.Ripsnort said:Just wanted to add to Garys post that you could use a machine polish (With an orbital buffer) to prep the surface prior to the application of a polymer I believe. This will level the clear coat (essentially "removing" a microthin layer of it ).
I used it A LOT with my 540i, which had squeaky door seals. It quiets them down for a couple weeks. The stuff smells like coconut, as if you were applying suntan lotion to your car. Smells great, feels kinda weird!Ripsnort said:Great looking website Gary!
Say, that Zymol Seal, you like the product? I may try that for my door seals.
Thks. I have no noises either but was thinking "maintenance" ...on second though, not sure if I should bother..., when I hit 15k and bring it in for service, I'm going to have them replace the door seals with the new ones. :dunno:Nat Brown said:

The new 330i has no noises, but I don't know how long that will last.
