do whatever is necessary to promote GLARE in my area.
As some of you may recall, I had the '05 Q45 which I purchased in January 2007 detailed by "European Detail Specialists" in Phoenix. When I got it, it had a lot of those fine scratches from the car washes the PO used. The detailer got most of them out, but not all, as some were just too deep into the clear coat. Now, it looks much better than when I bought it, and has stayed that way. I elected to pay extra to have it finished with a product called "Glare" instead of Carnauba wax. I was a little skeptical at the time, but Rick (Rich?) at the detail place assured me that it would last at least 2 years, and is far better than wax. So I took a chance.
I'm glad I did. I don't usually believe in extreme claims, but so far at least, in this case, it proved to be true. The detail was done last June, and so far, the "Glare" finish is still working great. I have driven in the rain, and when I got home, there was practically none of that accumulated dirt from driving in puddles and getting sprayed by other cars. Except for a small amount of dirt on the rocker panels, the car was clean the next day. Apparently, the rain kept rinsing the dirt off the car as I drove. I couldn't believe it.
A few days ago, it rained heavily around my house. I thought I was okay because I didn't take the car out, but when I opened the garage door to let my wife bring her car into the garage, apparently, the rusty and dirty water from the garage door dripped all over the hood of my car. I didn't notice it until the next day, when it had dried, leaving large rusty spots all over my hood, front fenders, and bumper. I freaked out, figuring the rust had stained my beautiful pearl white paint. I dusted the car with my "California Duster" (purchased from European Detail Specialists), then wiped down the hood with a wet terrycloth towel and dried it with microfiber cloths. I was amazed! The rust spots came right off, and there's no trace of them anywhere. What a relief!
I don't usually tout products, except maybe for Infiniti’s, but this stuff is phenomenal. Since the detailer applied it, I don't know
how much effort goes into putting it on, but it sure works. It may require a buffer. I heartily recommend it for anyone who wants their Q45 to look like new and stay that way for a long time without re-doing it periodically.
If you'd like to check it out, here's their web site: http://www.glare.com/
Yes, lots of claims, like every other car finish, but in this case, the claims are true. I swear by it. Don't ask me which of the products listed they used, but I suspect it's the regular "Glare" polish. It works.
FWIW, the "California Duster" works too. It removes accumulated dust from the car without leaving scratches. I dust my car with it about once a week, and can go for a month without washing the car, and it always looks clean and freshly washed.
Between "Glare" and the "California Duster", I don't have to spend hours keeping my Q45 looking like new, and only have to wash it once a month.
I sure like that!
Anyone living in the Phoenix area, I can also heartily recommend "European Detail Specialists". I got their name from another member here whose boss paid to have his engine compartment detailed by them, and went there, after finding out they do the cars for the Barrett-Jackson auction. They are expensive, but worth every penny. Cost me around $375 for a complete detail in and out, buff the overspray from when I had a new front bumper cover put on and painted at the dealer as well as the car wash scratches, and apply the "Glare" finish. Best money I ever spent. And no, I have no connection whatsoever with either the detailer, "Glare", or "California Duster" except as a customer, and a happy and satisfied one at that.
After the awards ceremony, I asked several of the judges what were the strong points of my car. Without hesitation, 100% of the judges ruled the finish the outstanding quality which helped emphasize the rest of the car's attributes.GLARE STOLE THE SHOW - no doubt about it.

Dear Ultra 2000 Manufacturing International Co. Inc. (Glare):
I have used every product on the market. I have spent about $800 to $900 on all kinds of different brands of car detail products including: Wizards, Auto Glym, Eagle One, Mothers, 3M, Meguiars, Zano, Cillaget, and Dupont. None of these products I purchased from any of these brands compared to the results I got from Glare!
After seeing the amazing results I achieved by using Glare, I decided to give away all of the other products I had purchased to a friend of mine that works in another shop. The very next day, I ran into my friend at a local store. He saw my truck and could not believe how great it looked! He asked me what products I had used on my truck to achieve such a fantastic finish. I told him Glare products. To my surprise, my friend showed up at my shop the next day with all of the detailing products I had given him earlier in the week. He said he was only using Glare products in his shop from then on!! My boss has made it clear that the only products that are allowed in his shop are Glare products after seeing the amazing results I had on my personal truck. Glare products are the best!
After using Glare on my truck, I decided to try these wonderful products on one of our customer’s vehicles. This vehicle was then transported from South Carolina to Florida. The customer called me and asked what kind of polish I had used on the car. I told him Glare. He was blown away at the flawless finish I had achieved! He told me he had never seen a set of detail products that kept pollen and dust out of the finish and completely eliminates water spots. Water just sheets off of the finish!
To anyone who may be hesitant to purchase Glare products let me say this… You will not be disappointed! I have been doing custom paint work for 16 years, on my personal vehicles as well as our customer’s vehicles. I have never had this great of results on any of my work in those 16 years! I will NEVER go back to any of the other products!
My wife and I have used Glare on glass, tile, chrome, and silver and we get the same perfect results every single time! Thank you for a great product and service. You all are the best!!!
Thanks a Million!!!!

Sorry no before and after pics but here's the story...
Saturday I noticed that the right hand side of the wifes car (it's a red Solara) had horizontal scratches all the way down the side. It looked like she had either been keyed many times or actually more like she parked and scraped next to some bushes. They were about 3-4 inches wide from the rear of the front fender all along the door and down on the back panel.
I went in the house and asked her what happened to her car and she had no idea. I went back outside grabbed the PC, a Lake Country 5.5" orange flat pad, some Glare polish and went to work. She came out in about five minutes to look at the damage and by that time all the scratches were all completely GONE!
What I really like about this stuff is that it's not a temporary glaze/filler that washes off after the first rain. I truly bonds and becomes IMHO a permanent paint surface correction.
Hmmmm...add product to correct paint rather than polishing away clear coat to level the paint....what a concept.
Detailing terms for compound, polish, sealant etc. are not industry consistent.
One school of thought when using Glare Pro Polish is...
You need to polish your paint (compound) before using Glare Pro.
In some cases this is using a DA with M105/M205/Menz PO85 type combo
Reason: Remove all the swirls and fine scratches before applying Glare Pro
Another school of thought when using Glare Pro Polish is...
Let the Glare Pro product completely fill the swirls and they will stay gone.
IMHO This really depends on the amount of the paint correction needed.
I would DA polish the paint first then apply Glare Pro
Glare is a unique product:
Your first application (on clean paint) is applied like a compound.
Glare Polish is rubbed into the paint like a compound until it completely disappears.
This causes Glare Pro to bond to the vehicles paint through a covalent chemical bond
This also IMHO permanently fills and hides imperfections in the paint (swirls etc.)
Repeat if needed.
Glare Polish is applied like you would a wax or sealant.
Let haze (to the swipe test) and lightly buff to remove.
Remove with a high quality MF towel or 100% USA cotton.
This is the process they recommend when using their product.
I have used this process and have had excellent results.
For protection, durability, longevity and correcting scratches and swirls it truly excels.
Although Glare is very good for what it is, it is not IMHO the shiniest LSP on the market.
I have corrected "spots" and then used a different LSP product to seal the entire truck.
I have used Glare as a "spot" correction product to permanently fill and hide scratches.
I have done complete dawn washes and all the "spots" corrected with Glare are still gone.
I have been using Glare Pro for many years and it has a special place in my detailing arsenal.
To whom it may concern,
I was introduced to your Glare Professional Polish car care line earlier this summer by my good friend Lanson Saizon down at 2020 auto detailing here in Hawai'i. I decided to take his word for it and go down to have him try out your product on my new 2005 Toyota Tundra. The results were fantastic! I have been personally detailing my own vehicles for about two years now and have been using Meguiar's with good results UNTIL you came along! I am extremely picky and have an eye for detail when it comes to making my car looking its best and with your product I was truly amazed. Since the paint has a metallic base, I was still able to clearly see my face shine through which is what I have been trying to do for a long time.
I am happy to see how easy it is to apply even with the first application, and how you can even use it on glass. I used your Spider and Knock Out to remove some scuff marks, and was astonished to see an unexpected darkening of my paint making it appear more rich and bolder looking, while filling in the scratches and removing those dreaded swirl marks. With our weather here in Hawai'i being mostly coastal and sunny, salt and dirt debris often embed themselves into our paint, yet with your product that's a thing of the past.
With much Aloha,
P.S- feel free to put this on your website for a testimonials, also I have enclosed photos of my ride with your product. Also, would it be possible by any chance to get some sort of sticker to sport on my truck from you folks?
As a Glare wash and polish customer, I thought you’d be interested in seeing some proof of your product claims.
These were taken after a Glare wash and polish with my Flex Tool XC
3401 VR and the new CCS, Gold Finishing Pads.
Glare polish is without a doubt the best car wax I have ever used. Since I bought my most recent car in summer of this year, I have used five other high-quality polishes/waxes on it, (Wemol, Zymol, Nu-Finish, Meguire's Tech Wax, and something by Turtle Wax) and while all of them gave at minimum a clean luster, I was never able to tell a difference in a side-by-side comparison. When I used Glare polish for the first time, not only was I able to tell a difference in a side-by-side comparison - I could tell that it was outstanding even during the application. I was most amazed because I had been using Meguire's Tech Wax which I considered to be the best, but I was definitely proved wrong not just by the finish your polish gave, but by how extremely easy it was to buff out and its ability to hold up against being parked outdoors 24/7. Your polish is unmatched and I hope you have a lot of success in the future!

Attention: Vijay Parthab
Vijay I thought I would send this quick email after my visit to you for the top up on my black Subaru. When the Glare Polish was first applied I was both shocked and delighted that my new car (including all the factory Subaru imperfections) could look so much better then the day I picked it up from the dealer. Since that day I have had multiple people stop me, including the
service manager at Subaru and ask me what polish I use on my car. When I tell them I haven't polished the car since the day I bought it, the most common reply is you're kidding mate. That is when I tell them about the Glare product and your business. I can say with no hesitation that theGlare Polish is a great product but is only half the equation in my book, as I could honestly say that you would have to be one of the most professional and honest businessman I have ever had the joy to deal with. When it comes to preparing and applying the Glare Product you work like a surgeon and are so passionate about your work and it shows in the final product which is a black Subaru with a truly mirror like finish. I have also become one of those fastidious car owners that look at friends cars and pick their paint work to pieces, which doesn't always make them that happy but I tell them
that with a visit to you they too can have a gleaming car. I hope this email doesn't sound like one of those American info commercials but I can honestly say that this is the way I feel.
Thank you for your phone service and patience in helping us use the GLARE products correctly. As you may know, we have been persistent in trying to prove that this product is what it is meant to be.
First of all I will state that we are only amateurs, but have used the Glareproducts on our late model silver Toyota Prado, a white 1995 Toyota Hilux and a 1997 grey Nissan Pulsar. I have had others comment on how nice our vehicles have looked, but this next job was a real test of the glare products. In the last week or so, we have had the challenge to remove bad scratches from a friends late model white Commodore. The scratches were excessive, in fact probably a very rare instance where it seemed like someone had sanded the whole area of hood, boot and rear spoiler with medium sand paper – not something we expect to happen. The scratches were deep, very noticeable and widespread across the full areas stated. It was a very disappointing sight for the owner to find that a neighbor had done this to his car approximately 2 months before. I had shaken my head upon seeing this vehicle and called Paint Protection Direct for assistance to see if their products could achieve a desired result. We tried Vjay’s instructions to a small section for 15 minutes to no avail. I called again and you were very confident if we followed your instructions, and used pressure on our low 500 rpm buffer (which we hadn’t done on the first attempt) -that we would remove all the scratches, taking no layers of paint off with your (cut and polish like product –) GLARE KNOCK OUT.
We used buffing machine and applied knockout several times per areas done for the deep scratches to be removed, but note that no paint layers were removed. If we had a more high powered buffer maybe the job would have been achieved quicker, but all scratches have been removed in about a day and half to the whole vehicle. There is one very happy owner who now has his car looking like new again. It is really an amazing product – the 23 yr old young man who is the owner of the white Commodore shared his joys over the phone with his father who has been very particular with polishing and keeping his own cars immaculate over the years, but he was a little dubious of the thought that a cut and polish like product would not take the paint off. They were going to go to a professional paint shop and probably pay $500 or more for the removal of the severe scratches and probably remove layers of paint as well, but instead “Glare Knockout” has done the spectacular job for less than $50 and a day or so of laboring with a buffing machine. I have personally seen the before and after of this vehicle and assisted in the removal of scratches and polishing. The removal of these scratches with Glare Knockout has convinced me totally that this product is amazing, and too the results and comments from others I’ve had about the vehicles we have applied the Professional Glare Polish previously.
Don’t just purchase the Glare Products and give up,- practice, persist, talk and seek advice from the team at Paint Protection Direct and you will achieve amazing results in a very short time without taking ANY layers of paint off your vehicle. We will from now on always use Glare products on our vehicles and share Glare product results with as many as we can.
Hi,I had my car (Audi A4 1998) waxed in a cosmetic shop about 5 years ago. I sure was impressed with the results! But what is even better is that it lasted until then. It is still shiny and water still pearls on it. I am so satisfied that I want to have it done once more just so the paint keeps looking nice and brilliant. Because you know how Audi owners are proud of their cars hey!

I just wanted to tell you how impressed my husband was with the results of you GLARE Winners Kit. He applied all the applications and while I am the polish fanatic, all he kept saying was how easy everything went on and raved about the results of each coat. He was floored when the last coat of GLARE went on.
Here in Florida, where the love bugs swarm and the sun just bakes them in, the ease of cleaning off anything you encounter on the road is just short of miraculous. Nothing sticks!
I look forward to getting my next order of GLARE Tire and Trim, and Leather products. WE are believers!
