    Dr. Beasley's Formula 1201 Paint Coating

    This product looks really cool. Up to 1 year durability and looks super easy to apply. Anyone tried this?

    Re: Dr. Beasley's Formula 1201 Paint Coating

    I've been curious about several of the Dr. Beasley products.

    This one looks interesting, but the application to a wet vehicle would be tricky for me. My garage has no drains and my driveway has no shade, which would make keeping the car wet long enough to apply this product REALLY difficult.

    Their Nano Resin Coating comes in at a nice price point too, seems to last longer, and doesn't have the wet surface requirement. I look forward to this getting into people's hands for reviews.

    I actually like the wet surface requirement.

    If literally all you do is wipe on wet then final wipe.. then sounds like a very quick and easy service to sell.
    Vs something easy like Polish Angel Cosmic where you have to leave on ax amount of time..before you can wipe off

    Agreed. Also, with the wet application, you're getting a lot of lubrication upon drying when combined with the product. I just ordered 1201 coating.

    Interested to hear your thoughts on this. It does look very intriguing and it comes with a free booster? I'm a sucker for freebies. I bought Plasmacoat about a month ago and haven't been able to apply it to anything yet.

    How would you keep the car wet? I could see spraying one panel at a time, but then you run the risk or wetting area's you just dried.

    I will let you know my thoughts. Gonna leave half the hood bare so I can really gauge its durability. Will only be using N914 as a drying aid. The booster is free. I'll use that once the hydro properties diminish.

    Spray bottle with distilled water. Any overspray would be very minimal.

    Re: Dr. Beasley's Formula 1201 Paint Coating

    Man, this stuff was terrible for me. Felt like my money was stolen. Tried it on my hood. Polished with M205 to remove anything prior. Washed with Reset to remove any polishing oils. Hydrophobic properties were gone. Wet the surface, applied 1201, then dried. Flooded the hood to see hydrophobic properties and they were none existent; almost as if I applied nothing to my hood. Taped off half to hood to compare. Terrible hydrophobic properties on both sides. Followed the directions perfectly.

    Ugh. Thanks for your feedback. Now I'm glad I didn't buy it. Now I'm leary about putting Plasmacoat on something.
