    ok, most people have said you can use #7 or #81, as the same step right? well the steps should be, polish, glaze, seal, wax, right? #7 shows as a "glaze" in the meguiars book, and #81 shows as a "polish"

    I`ll let a real #7/#81 expert tackle this one (there are plenty of `em around here- paging Mike Phillips!), but I WILL point out that #7 was previously called "Sealer and Reseal Glaze". How`s that for further muddying the waters :p



    But seriously, you just can`t put TOO much stock in how products are named.

    Meguiar`s IS kind of confusing with their interchangeable jargon. On my Harvest Gold `01 Duratec Taurus, I used the following:



    #83

    #7

    #20

    #26



    Are there some redundant steps in there? Perhaps. But hey, it`s my own car, and I like to perform `detailing overkill`. I will say that after the second layer of #26, the surface of the car looked like someone had poured honey on it. Incredible depth and gloss!

    #7 and #81 are both non-abrasive polishes and perform the same function. #7 tends to work better and apply and remove easier from single-stage paints, while #81 tends to work better and apply and remove easier from clear coat paints.



    #7 Show Car Glaze came out in either the late 1920`s, or the very early 1930`s.



    After claying, and then cleaning your paint, (if these steps are needed), apply a polish, such as #7 or #81 and then apply a wax or paint protectant over the polish.



    Here is a very rare and early 1/2 gallon jug of Sealer and Reseal Glaze.



    Note: Bottles with Mirror Bright were manufactured before World War II, and bottles with Mirror Glaze were manufactured after World War II



    Of course, I collect old Meguiar`s bottles so if anyone has any and would like to see their old bottle go to a good home and growing collection, please contact me.
