    Collinite 855 works great as well.

    That would be a question for the CarPro guys to answer. Perhaps this is more forgiving for internal plastics compared to DLUX in terms of ease of use. In reality one could probably use any coating on those pieces.

    Re: Review - CarPro Cquartz Leather Coating

    Here are a couple more applications.

    Applied it to the leather seat on my brothers harley.



    Also applied it to the interior of my dad's 2015 Impala. The seats are grey. Tested this a few months back on an inconspicuous spot to see if it would cause any issues. It did not, so I finally had time to apply to the leather seats. Applied 2 coats to the rear seats and 3 coats on the front seats.

    Lost daylight while I was finishing up. Took the Scangrip iView headlamp out and lit up the area.



    1 1/2 days later I tested out the hydrophobic properties of the coating on the seats.

    Water out of an eye dropper.



    Water sprayed out of a spray bottle




    Video coming up shortly once I finish uploading it.

    I also forgot to include this photo of me applying it to the wood grain plastics on my dad's 2015 Impala.



    Videos are up. Covers most of what is written in this thread. Tried to keep it short.

    Is there a specific temperature this product should be applied?

    Great question. Hopefully Avi or someone from CarPro can chime in on that because I could not find any information on that.

    My most recent application it started dropping into the 50's as I was finishing up the last seat and it was still working ok.

    I just saw that CarPro made a slight update to the precautions on their home page. The two boxes I had came with orange sued applicator. So something must have changed. I just ordered a new one so I will see if it comes with orange or white suede applicators. Very interesting.

    Precautions:

    Professional Product - Not for do it yourself use

    Do NOT use the orange suede applicators. Use only white cotton applicators or white suedes.

    Avoid use on white/light colored interiors

    Confirm any leather is standard finished leather only and if unsure perform 2 week visual test on inconspicuous surface

    Note: Currently there are a variety of leather and vinyl materials with a variety of coatings used by many auto manufacturers. It is not possible to acquire or test this number of surfaces therefore user must confirm viability in inconspicuous area on any surface.

    Quick follow up why the change. Posted over on the CarPro Forum and this was the response.

So we are replacing all the applicators now in our kits. On dark leather you would not see an issue.

    Re: Review - CarPro Cquartz Leather Coating

    Nice review, Guz.

    I noticed you had used Meguiar's quick detailer. Did you at any point use cleaners that laid down any protectants (basically AIO or 3 in 1s) or did you clean your seats periodically with a straight up interior cleaner?

    Re: Review - CarPro Cquartz Leather Coating

    For a 2002 that leather has held up quite well. They surely dont make them like they used to these days. Once my leather needs a cleaning I have a sample of wolfgangs conditioner to try out. I have been using meguiars all purpose diluted at the lowest level and conditioning with leather masters.

    What is the difference between apc and the meguiars leather cleaner?

    I would be a little afraid to use that adams brush with the lexus interior it seems like the coating chips off so easily. They definitely dont make them like they used to anymore. Not to mention the prior owner sitting on the thick bolsters rather than the middle of the seat (I hate when people do that).
