    You are getting some great information from our community here! Happy to see! I wanted to add, it is impressive what a cleaner/polish like Ultimate Polish can do to a light colored paint when applied with a yellow polishing pad on a dual action polisher like our MT300. Really can increase the gloss and "pop" look.

    Re: Polish, Glaze or Cleaner before Waxing?

    Hope I'm not hijacking the thread, but how often can UP be used to help get that extra pop on new car? Also, does UP take bits of the clearcoat each time it's used?

    I have a 2017 Chevy Malibu LT with dark blue velvet metallic paint, which I believe is a hard paint. Which would give better results, UP or #7 glaze.

    Still trying to learn Meguiar's products.

    Thanks

    Within reason, you probably can't use UP often enough to hurt your finish, especially on the hard paint of your Malibu.
    As one who uses a lot of M07 on single-stage paint restorations, I'll tell you it's a product not worth the effort required on a new clearcoat finish. I've done it just as a test on one of my newer cars and it gives an insane "wet look" on a dark color, but the effort required is substantial, since it has to be done by hand and there's no longevity. I've done it on the night before a judged show with my El Camino on a surface already polished and waxed and it looks great for a couple days or the first washing. It's just faster and easier to give it a rub with M26 or Gold Class. If you're looking to get the most out of an already good dark finish, I'd recommend UP, Mirror Bright Polishing Wax, or even D301 Finishing wax.
