I've seen guys at car shows using this stuff called Hand Glaze made by 3M. Does anyone here use it? What is it's general pourpose. Usually I wax it with Maguires gold class, and at shows I just use a detailer spray wax for touch ups. I have a custom Spies Hecker paint job, so i'm pretty picky about what I put on it. Let me know if this 3M stuff is any good.

That would be 3M Imperial Hand Glaze

I am not a big fan, but it does have its advantages.

Basicly when you boil it down, it is a glaze. Which means its an oily substance used to temporarilly hide swirls and give your car a wet look.

The good? It does make the car look pretty oily
The Bad? It takes as long (if not longer) to put on than waxing, yet it only lasts for a few weeks at most. Further, high quality synthetic polymer sealants will not bond to the oils from this product.

Basicly, its like makeup for your car. It does have some mild cleaning and polishing properties (very mild), but you would be better off using a cleaner wax for that aspect than IHG.

UPDATE: I tried this stuff on my Civic. Didn't like it. A good wax (Maguire's Gold Class) has much better and long lasting effects.
