    Re: Coating overload - which one to use

    Thanks for all the input everyone. Still going back and forth - I like Polishangel because of its ease of applicability but I figured before I recoat I should see if there is something better.

    I couldn't agree more!! I've used several coatings including Cosmic. You would love this combo,,

    Upon further pondering, I have had water spot issues with some coatings and boosters. I quickly stopped using those products. 1 was a coating and one was a SiO2 booster product.

    I generally top every coating I do with a SiO2 booster/sacrificial layer and have not had spotting with that particular formulation.

    Which ones do you prefer?
    I've been using Cure. Very impressed with it. I've used KOC (not sold here so initials are in it's place). It is nice, but expensive. Not sure if it is any better than Cure. Next I'm going to try the XXX Systems product.

    Cure is nice, especially cut 50-50 with distilled water; I had some streaking using it straight up.

    Sent ya a PM regarding the acronym products.

    None! Stick to a wax or sealant!

    BudgetPlan, I'm going to try the CURE 50/50 suggestion. Several people have said the same thing.

    I applied Optimum Gloss-Coat to my white Audi TT last year. I am very happy with the application and the result. It seems this product is not as popular as it once was. Are the coatings in the original post any better?

Regular application of CarPro Spotless Water Spot Remover will keep your Cquartz coated vehicle looking its best!

    I just got CarPro Spotless and have a coated vehicle with some pretty mineral rich rain sitting on it now. So I have something to test with. Hopefully tomorrow.
    Any update?
