    Is it possible that because you got his truck so shiny, that now he's noticing (Wyoming oil field) dust on it that was always there, but he never noticed before?

    Good analogy, red is right behind black in showing everything.

    ......Or that the guy is a chronic complainer and b!tches and whines about everything to try and get out of paying the bill??
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    I wished I had taken a before pics, so you guys could tell the difference. He was definitely blown away with the results, 3 weeks later he's coming up with this theory that the coating is attracting dust. Weird...

    Great point. Three weeks is a long time to be exposed to the elements if he's actually driving the truck on a regular basis...especially in early winter in that part of the country. It's naturally dusty and you're going to have snow at this point. The truck will get dirty. Coatings aren't a magical force field.

    Re: Graphene Coating Attracting Dust Issues?

    I was thinking about this thread yesterday. I washed my car Sunday and here we are less than a week later and it's covered in dust. I ended up driving behind a few construction vehicles with dirt particles streaming out of the back and now I have a nice layer of dirt/dust on my car. It's coated and it's no big deal. The coating doesn't stop dust, it makes it easier to remove. I know that I could come home and spray it down with some ONR and do a quick rinse less wash and it's back to normal. If the water doesn't bead then you have a problem. I wouldn't remove the coating.

    "He works in the oil fields of Wyoming and North Dakota and who knows what else he has in there."

    What does he think is going to happen working in an outdoor environment like that? He should be thankful that he has a coating which will make cleaning the Raptor so much easier.

    Re: Graphene Coating Attracting Dust Issues?

    Thank guys for your input. We can all agree that ceramic coatings are not the do it all ultimate paint finish protection. It could happen that some people get misguided creating a misconception of what ceramic coatings are all about.

    Let me tell you guys this little anecdote. I have this guy Iíve met through a customer. This guy every time he sees me he always, without failing- asks me if Iím still doing the ďClaybar thingĒ all because heís heard from my customer how smooth his paint feels after I was done detailing his car. His misconception is that Claybar is a do-it-all magic product that polishes, removes defects and smoothes the paint. Guys, I havenít been able to correct this guy no matter what. He even tells his friends about what I do and about the Claybar magic properties!

    That guy sounds like a real know-it-all. A know-it-all who clearly doesn't know anything about real detailing
    Treat it like it's the only one in the world.
