I was going to apply some of my Gyeon Trim to my car's plastic today. I guess I didn't store it in an airtight environment!

(I guess that should remove any doubt as to the silica content!)https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180825/367f4b48910958e07520a9abfa643653.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180825/38afb7a4b449be66f3d37ae936c43ee4.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180825/ea08e517febcf9572e90dedbce12666b.jpg

Wow thatís a trip. How many times did you get to use it?
This is why Iíve been so hesitant on opening my bottle of McKees Headlight Coating, Iíd be upset if I only got to use it once then something like that happened to it. $60 bucks for 1 use ainít cheap! Lol.

Surprised you left the dropper in there instead of using the original cap. I put the original cap back on mine and over a year it still has not hardened within the bottle.

The dropper is the reason.

I've actually had it since last summer and have used it on a few cars. I usually recap with the original and store in my house in drawer, but for some reason I didn't recap this time.

I found that most of my coatings last well over a year when stored in this manner. Alas, not with this bottle.

Oh well.

Sucks that it's useless but pretty cool to see!

I wonder if I can reconstitute it with some petroleum products and then use on some other surface? Hmmm:xyxthumbs:

And now you know why they call it "quartz". :)

Take those bits, polish them up and mount them in a nice ring for your wife.

Ok, I'll admit the thread title was misleading............... :laughing:


But, that's pretty interesting to see.
