After much contemplation, I finally decided to part with a significant amount of money in order to get some good sleep.
Hence, I decided to put my money on the Amazing Glaze AG5. As advertised, this product is used in the aviation industry to protect the paints of Airbuses and Boeings. So I figured that if it could protect a plane, it should protect my car.
To tell you the truth, I am quite a skeptic over such claims but in desperate times, I was willing to give it a go. Thus far, after my first wash and shampoo, the water bleeds off the car well enough. As you can see, my paint is now spotless with a true piano black finish.
Nevertheless, money has been invested and I am very happy with the restoration. Fingers crossed for the glaze. Perhaps regular coasts of sealant would give some added protection. After all, if the AG5 cannot be stripped by washing, an added sealant would just be another layer of protection for the paint work.
