    1) Not sure about second coat, will let someone else answer.
    2) The Booster is thinner. Some claim itís hard to tell if itís even adding value, itís so thin. I myself can see an increase in glassy shine when applying it, but have no clue if it has any real longevity or not. The SiO2 Spray is much more substantial, way better as a standalone, can last weeks for some or months for others by itself. I believe this has a lot more sealant polymers than the Booster.
    3) Pick one and go for it, donít buy a gallon of each like I did. The SiO2 Spray is more popular and will probably alter the look and characteristics of your coating more while adding some decent protection, and I would think using it every 1-2 months max would be fine.
    If you prefer your coating characteristics and look and only want a slight shine refresh without adding much durability/protection, I would recommend the Booster and you can use it probably as often as you want is my guess.

    Re: To use SiO2 or not

    You can definitely use the new Sio2 sprays over carnauba wax products. Ive done it and Pinnacle even recommends it.

    You probably won't get the paint to pop unless you polish. At the very least a paint cleaner.

    Re: To use SiO2 or not

    On a related note, I've been using the BF SiO2 Spray recently. Can I apply McKees Paint Coating over the top of it without removing the BF?

    This doesn’t sound like a good idea, not if you want predicted longevity from the coating. BF SiO2 has polymers in it besides SiO2 and, additionally, your surface isn’t squeaky clean anymore.

    I would think that since s102 is a form of silicone, that it can go over or under any other silicone product. By the way polymers are also a form of silicone

    Silicon and Silicone are 2 different things.

    SiO2 = Silicon Dioxide

    At least that what my Google Science 101 tells me To use SiO2 or not

    Thanks so much I really appreciate the help- did put on a second coat and let it sit for another 24 hours then did the SIO2 over top will continue on with the SIO2 thanks for the advice about not buying another extra gallon I don't have any more room in my locker anyway
