Hi! I have read many of your posts about using Mirror Glaze on vintage machines. But WHICH Mirror Glaze do you use? There are, I think, 7 or so different Mirror Glaze products, I got all confused looking at them and trying to figure out which one to use.

Thanks for your help!

I use the Professional Show Car Glaze. You can get it at Auto Zone.

Just to clarify - use the glaze on the vintage black Singer machines? Does the glaze clean and then add a protective finish?

Yes, it works on any shiny, automobile-like surface. I wouldn't use it on a crinkle finish, or a finish that is naturally dull.

Be sure to clean the machine first with lighter fluid.

And I think a coat of carnauba wax afterwards is a good idea. To the best of my knowledge, the Mirror Glaze is more polish than it is protectant.
