    Getting more gloss with Klasse twins

    I use Klasse AIO and Glaze sealant for my cars. It does the job of protection in northeast winters but it doesn't give any gloss. I was wondering what I can use under Klasse AIO or above Glaze Sealant to get the gloss. FWIW, during last winter, I used Turtle Wax Seal and Shine after washing the car but there was not much shine. (I have Raynaud's so everything must be done very quickly before my fingers turn pale and numb.)

    I have been reading the board for few days trying to understand where X-type of products fit into detailing methodology. This board is a cornucopia of auto detailing info but I don't seem to find anything that can fit into my situation.

    I came across this flowchart from 2009 (Flow Chart) I don't know if there are updates that a new generation of products are in the market with completely disorganized nomenclature. Maybe that is my problem. I don't know. Hence posting the question here.

    One car falls under neglected paint and another under good condition. Both daily drivers and have metallic paints. I do not plan to do any paint correction for the neglected paint car due to my limitations.

    Questions
    - If the flowchart still holds true, what is prewax cleaning polish. According to one of Mike's articles, Klasse AIO falls under cleaner/sealant.
    - Is there any finishing polish that can be added for the neglected paint car to enhance gloss?
    - Any other ideas or product recommendations and where to use them in this flow chart to enhance the gloss.

    Thanks a lot in advance.

    Look at Sonus products. They have a full line of products including pre-wax cleaners, polishes, toppers and detailers. Sonus says they are all formulated from the the same German made Acrylic polymers that Klasse products are made from.

    Gloss comes from the paint being smooth.
    Smoothness comes from polishing/correction.

    •With that being said:
    -Sorry about your ailment. [As I’m similarly
    affected (+ peripheral neuropathy) I can truly
    empathize.] Regardless; and painful as it may be:

    -The journey, to impart as much gloss as possible,
    begins with polishing/correction “step(s)”.

    Thank you, Bob.

    I should have been more clear. I do not plan to correct the paint of the car with neglected paint, all swirls, and scratches.

    But another car's paint is in good shape. The paint is smooth and I do not see any swirls on it. Is there anything that can be used for that car? This car was initially ceramic coated by a professional detailer and has rarely gone through the carwash.

    Can Sonus Glanz be used as a drying agent?

    Re: Getting more gloss with Klasse twins

    I wouldn't use it as a drying agent. It's pretty thick. I would use the Spritz.

    I used both Glanz and Spritz for many years when I still used the Klasse Twins on my vehicles. I never really liked Glanz. I found it actually muted the gloss of Klasse SG and it didn't do the water behavior any favors either. Spritz however, was nice. It was easy to use, and boosted the gloss a bit when used after a wash. I worked well as a QD spray too, which is it's primary purpose.

    Spritz works well as a drying aid. Glanz streaks a bit. I mixed Glanz and Spritz 50/50 and it works well as a drying aid also.
