    Re: Not your average coating recommendation

    I'd second the recommendation from Guz, Gloss Coat would probably be fine as its so easy to apply but as he said its not really a step up in terms of durability, CSL or CSL + EXO is a good choice for 1) easy to apply 2) should be about as durable as you can get without the commitment of having to go "pro" and not have the added pressure to maintain an account/partnership with a specific manufacturer....unless your business can support it of course.

    Re: Not your average coating recommendation

    No I have not and I've been doing them in a new environment this last month than I'm used to and still no issues. I actually flew to Guam (high heat and high humidity and have still had no issues with it. I'm of course used to the high temps and no humidity situation with lots of dust.

    Here's a look at the conditions I've been in this month, a few have had cover but the really only problem is that I have to swap pads more often as they saturate much faster now

    2) Have them provide a garage or enclosed space

    If you have customers that will see the added value - I assume they would understand the constraints here - also they most likely have more money - and are likely to have a garage you may be able to use.

    I'm actually surprised any coating works well in those conditions - but luckily you've found one - stick to it since it works....
    This is definitely a good option. I'm friends with a local who did about 75% of his coatings in the customers garage.
