I like Autobrite Direct Cherry Glaze...

Easy on, easy off, nice finish once buffed up! Doesn't last all that long, but it's so quick to use that top-up coats are no hassle

I've got Clearkote Vanilla Moose at the moment. Gives a very nice finish. Smells good too !

I like a nice port and cranberry glaze myself, cuts through game really well.

Erm, what is a glaze?!

Not really a glaze as such but I like to finish with Autoglym Extra Gloss Protection, really easy to use and decent finish.

PoorBoys Black Hole would be my suggestion (yes, it works amazingly on red cars). Follow it with a decent wax (I still rate Autoglym HD Wax) and it'll look awesome.

That's a sealant and has no filling abilities. It should be used AFTER a glaze to protect the finish.

PBW every time.. Very easy to work with by hand, but large foam pad on a DA for the bonnet and roof, gives top results..

Then, Sealant and Wax to finish.

Finally got round to using the glaze and WOW! what a result. Sealed in with EGP. Is it worth putting a wax over the EGP./

That looks good, might have to order some myself. Looks like it worked really well with Red!
