Default 2011 obp Subaru Sti glaze?

Hello everyone, I have a pretty good cleaning routine going. Over time the car picks up fine defects. I have read a glaze can hide the defects in between paint correction. Can anyone suggest a product I can apply with my da polisher? Should it be applied with a white pad? This gets very addictive and I don't want to polish my car till the paint is gone.

I use a pre wax cleaner called Klasse All in One, then a glaze called Klasse Sealant Glaze. I also drive a 2011 WRX and have some very minor defects in the paint. After using these products with my orbital buffer the car looks perfect! I use Autogeek pads on my buffer; a white pad for the All in One and a black pad for the Glaze.

Klasse All in ONe is literally that. "All in one".

So it's not just a cleaner alone, but has an acrylic sealant in it as well. Ideally, you could use that by itself.

Just a FYI.

While I too cannot sing enough praises for Klasse All-In-One or KAIO as it is sometimes called, I think you are looking for more of a traditional, pure, glaze.
A glaze, similar to a wax, will fill small imperfections and blemishes and effectively hide them from view until the product wears away.
A glaze product that I have had particular success with is Poorboys Black Hole glaze. This is specifically made for darker colored paint which would work well with your obsidian black pearl.
I would top it with a pure sealant to maintain the appearance as long as possible.
Also, there is no need to apply this using a machine. By hand is fine, shouldn't take you any longer to apply than wax.

Klasse Sealant Glaze is the pure glaze from Klasse (usually applied on top of AIO). It's basically All In One without the cleaning properties. It fills and can be layered for more fill, depth, and protection.

I just bought a whole bunch of new products and I may be going back to my old and trustworthy Klasse AIO & SG method.
