im guessing this stuff is going to be good for use after the farcela g3 compound? looks like it ticks all the right box's ,http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3M-Imperial-Machine-Glaze-05991-1L-/260421516093?pt=UK_Body_Shop_Supplies_Paint&hash=item3ca254fb3d

My video is on the site on how I do it.

i don't use even the zymol. i use a simple spray glaze and final wipe. I've learned too that 1500 dry on a d/a works very well for me, solid or metallics. On average 3 coats of clear and the super duty does well with getting rid of the small orange peel left. And i now only use the foam pads. work very well for me. A lot less worry about burning through, and cuts nice and smooth. :goodjob:

well if they have the perfect it series there, they must have the heavy duty compound. Just named differently. we have the perfect it here, looks very close but mines in a purple bottle and it's perfect it II not III but it's also not a glaze. It's just a fine compound. here it is in a gallon. just for reference.

I'm not saying it's the best glaze on the market but I like it because it leaves a residue free finish,a quick wipe with a soft cloth and it's done :goodjob:

Deity,that super duty is really cheap,could do with finding that in the UK

like i said they have to have an equivalent in the uk. Maybe contact 3m uk and see if you get an answer back or your local jobber and give them that part number from the usa site and see if it will cross to another part number?
