    Re: Meguiar's #7 Show Car Glaze - Goodbye to an old friend - hello to a new friend!

    I was shocked too! Two things I noticed is that the 'new' formula doesn't seem as 'oily' as the old formula. It also seems to take more 'color' off of the paint - maybe slightly more abrasive?

    I did tear the shop apart and found half a bottle of the old formula, and finished the car up with that. But I'll give the new stuff a chance :-)

    In my other post I said I didn't think the new #7 did as good a job, but may just have been jaded by my shock at the change. I don't like change when it's a product I've trusted for years. Too many things that work well are changed or disappear altogether in the name of "progress", so you can imagine how concerned I was. This thread, and your explanation, go a long way towards reducing my concern.........thanks Mike!

    Is it possible it just looked like it took more color off the paint, because the product is so much lighter now?

    Thanks for the heads up, Mike! Gonna go pick up a couple of bottles of the old stuff here locally. Just for peace of mind, and nostalgia.

    I believe it was. I used to use that too. I used to like some of the 3M stuff back in the 90's.

    Nice one! I had forgotten about Imperial Hand Glaze. Was a really good glaze in the "appearance" definition of glazes. Does anyone know if they still make it?

    Pleased to read that it is only a minor change to #7 & if Mike says its better . . . then, its better.

    Re: Meguiar's #7 Show Car Glaze - Goodbye to an old friend - hello to a new friend!

    Great timing on this thread Mike!

    I have a project coming up on a 1930 Model A, SS black lacquer that was painted in 81. It was my father-in-laws, (mentioned him in the Papa Fred threads back in Jan and Feb). I've inherited the car, and can't wait to get to it. Of course he NEVER buffed it, EVER. And it's as swirl ridden as you can picture in your mind. Plus it has a couple of boo-boo's from a couple things falling on it in the garage. One dent in a fender, and another in the right side of the ol' fold up hood. That one unfortunately, he took a rattle can and tried to touch-up. You know what happens when you spray lacquer and enamel right? You get that weird crazing and bad chalky dull look.

    But the rest of the car is as original as day one from the Ford Factory. He spent 5 years doing a nut and bolt restoration, and it was is pride and joy for many years. We are blessed to be getting it for sure. Heck... even picked up the PE-8 kit for all the little tight curves, nooks and crannies on her. (Well... that's if the kit ever shows up, seems 4 days to ship (yes I asked for expedited shipping) when my orders have always ARRIVED in only 3 is the best that happens these days.)

    I do have a fresh (old formula) bottle of #7 sitting here though. Now you've given me a reason to head up to Advance and see if they've got 'new' or 'old' on the shelf.
    Might be interesting to do a 50/50 just for the heck of it.

    Dear Mike
    Do you usually polish these old gems before applying Number 7?

    -I still use 3M's Imperial Hand Glaze (IHG)
    -As of right now: AGO still carries it:

    3M Imperial Hand Glaze is a gentle moisturizer, especially for beautifying freshly painted surfaces!

    -Meguiar's states that their #7 is a "pure polish";
    that is to say: contains no abrasives.

    On the other hand:

    -3M Imperial Hand Glaze contains (their Trade
    Secret) "Ceramic Materials and Wares".
    [CAS# 66402-68-4]

    Note:
    Some people are known to classify
    "Ceramic Materials and Wares" (CM&W)
    (and their synonyms that are listed below)
    as abrasives.
