Need clarification on layering Brilliant Glaze

Question

Hey guys and gals,

I'm fairly new to waxing and detailing, been doing it to my vehicle for like 6 months.

And I have a question about layering. I was reading another FAQ Article from Adams, and I got a little confused as to when to apply the Brilliant Glaze.

 

This is what I have available:

Liquid Paint Sealant

Buttery Wax

Brilliant Glaze

H2O Guard and Gloss

 

Before, I used to do LSP, then Buttery Wax, then apply G&G once a month.

 

However, I got Brilliant Glaze in a mystery box today, and I'm not entirely sure where to put it in the application process. I read that it has filling abilities for subtle swirl marks and because of that it should be placed somewhere in the beginning of the process.

 

But since it has extremely low durability, wouldn't placing it in the beginning cause everything that was layered on top of it to come off? If I apply it before the LSP, would the LSP seal it to last the same as the LSP?

 

Any suggestions and tips would be gladly appreciated!!

Thanks guys.

You're going to get two different opinions here on that. I personally go with sealant, glaze, wax but lots of folks here go with glaze, sealant, wax.

 

The only sure thing is that you should try it for yourself. You'll figure out what works best for you.

Liquid paint sealant is LPS. You kept saying LSP which is last step product, which means just that...your last step. Any product can be a LSP if it's applied...well...last, LOL.

 

Oh man, totally missed that lol yeah I totally meant "LPS" (Liquid Paint Sealant).

As Roger said, you're going to get 2 opinions as to if glaze goes before or after LPS. I am on Roger's team in saying I prefer my LPS first. Last time I tried doing glaze under the sealant and man was the sealant harder to remove.

I agree with the rest, I do a sealant, then glaze, then wax, that way I have the best bond with the sealant to the paint, and since I have a wax over the glaze, the glaze will last as long as the wax.

 

Some people don't have time or the materials for a paint correction, so they will use a glaze to fill in and hide imperfections. This is why some people glaze, then seal (so now the glaze will last as long as the sealant, which is about 6 months), and then they wax.

 

 

Either route I would maintain with H20 Guard, a wax, or ceramic boost every few washes.

Depends on what effects you're after...longest protection, most shine, etc.. And is it a daily or garage queen? Since I only have daily drivers, I go PS, HGG every 4 or so washes, and BG when the mood strikes me. Product application in that order. I'm also considering adding W&W to my routine. I don't use any of the waxes, though, so I'll defer to others that may use all four of your products. Be sure to watch the videos (twice!) on the Adam's site, http://adamspolishes.com/video, and on YouTube, as they could help answer some questions, too.

 

By the way, the new acronym for PS is "P S" (no space), which will automatically revert to the full name. "Liquid" is not in the product title anymore. See this thread for more acronyms: http://www.adamsforums.com/topic/31826-acronym-expansion/.
