    My thinking is it will never see rain so iím more interested in marring resistance and looks.

    I know marring resistance is not gonna be great with any coating but when it is washed, it will mostly be rinslessís

    Your recent comments on 22ple insanity has me thinking that also along with Ammo Reflex Pro, and Adamís new graphene coating.

    How many layers do you need with insanity?

    Two layers per 22ple's recommendation.

    Notes from application follow up:

    Gyeon One

    The results were nice, but application was the stickiest once it hit the paint that Iíve ever used. Forgiving with respect to the amount of time you have to buff off missed high spots but very arduous removing/buffing. This was topped with CanCoat soon after application, itís performing quite well. Maintenance on this car is weekly washesÖusing Dawn or Joy dish soap to wash. I canít control what happens after the cars leave me. Holding up nicely regardless.

    Agree with essence as you donít need much or any cut. Griots correcting cream if you do.

    I use the Boss pads mainly and would recommend if you use a Griots polisher.... yellow ones.

    Will probably use Kamikaze or CSL on my Chevelle.


    Lastly CQUK3 is an amazing coating. Used it on my last car and highly recommend.

    How did you find the NV Nova Evo. NV is popular here and sold and developed by the main detailing shop I use here in Aus.

    Considering this for my next coating after CarPro Lite is done.

    How did you find application and how much of the bottle did you use?

    White needs all the help it can get to achieve any kind of depth and imo Essence high gloss polishing primer does the best job of adding depth, gloss, flow ect.

    White when polished is blinding in direct sunlight so imo where white can really shine is in dimmer more indirect light.
    During the day, dusk and dawn are whites small window to represent lol and I feel Essence gives white the best chance at achieving that.
    Ripping through your mind like a hurricane full of novocaine

    Perfect, great to know!

    And yes, one thing I discovered last year is that I was Manfred Mann'd (BLINDED BY THE LIIIIGHT) when I rolled my ride out into the sun, even with sunglasses.

    Just like The Guz mentioned, the white hides a LOT, but it's not the easiest to coat without proper lighting. On the first overcast day following the coating, I found several high spots. I like your comment about dusk and dawn being the small window for white to represent LOL That is the truth, man!

    I would also say there is a dramatic difference between polished out white and a white car that has been simply kept clean. In addition to the gloss, the actual color is different. Think fresh fallen snow vs a piece of paper. Put the two together and the paper will look dingy. A well polished white car will look like the snow.

    Nice. Let us know how you go! I do like the idea of only one coat, but also worry that I wouldnít get even coverage. I read BudgetPlanís review and it was good!

    I have a heap of their products and all but but one have been very good. I have their panel wipe, snow foams, tire dressing, wheel cleaner and some other things. I actually really rate the wheel cleaner and tire dressing. Nice matte finish and lasts a few weeks. The wheel cleaner is a cleaner + iron remover and itís been my favorite so far. The NV Snow I donít really like, but I love their stronger NV Snow+.
