    Gyeon can coat prep

    Hi all,
    I searched the forums and couldn’t find a specific answer to a question.
    I applied 2 coats of TW Hybrid Solutions Ceramic Spray after a full 1 step detail using HD Speed.

    I just was introduced to Gyeon Can Coat and ordered some today.

    My question is how would I prep the vehicle for application of the can cost?
    Do I have to polish with the DA again?

    Any input is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    In theory, yes you should prep by polishing the TW off and then removing polishing oils... don’t use HD Speed. It leaves short lived protection behind.

    Cancoat is also a coating topper and it’s possible it could live on top of TW... but I’m guessing you wouldn’t get max performance of Cancoat as TW underneath might be a lesser base, and in your current situation I don’t think TW will last long anyways being on top of Speed.

    Polish, prep wipe (CarPro Eraser. Gyeon Prep, etc..), double coat of cancoat 1 hour apart.

    Do you have any other polishes?

    Yeah if it’s a fresh coat polish. Lsp stripping soaps will affect the performance of a fresh applied LSP but won’t remove it

    I double coat about every coating I use.

    Meguiar’s has many polishes so anything such as ultimate polish, M205, M210 will work. Just be sure to prep wipe prior to the coating application.

    Cool, I’m a double coat guy, too. For coverage, but also I swear I get slightly better performance just about every time I double coat.

    I was scrolling down on my phone thinking about Collinite 476 as I saw all the “double coat” posts and wondering when you’d post. I saw the picture of 476 and looked at the username, lo and behold, PaulMys!! Great product like all Collinite waxes I’ve used.

    For CanCoat, definitely polish the car again and use a panel prep spray of some sort to ensure it’s free of any oils. The product itself is extremely easy to use and apply/remove.
