    I'll post this here as well, I had very good results in the first test. I applied Zymol Titanium 3 days ago on the paint (not polish prepped beforehand). Washed today with 1 oz per 1 gallon dilution of Adam's Strip Wash with little impact, strong beading and quick sheeting remained. Sprayed Poorboy's Strip Down when wet on half the hood, went over the area again with the same mitt and the beading was dead during the rinse. No etching marks where it made contact on the paint.

    On my front bumper I've had McKee's 37 SiO2 Paint Coating for 7+ months, extremely strong performance remaining and I tried Strip Down on a section. The coating was significantly damaged in various areas, not full removal but permanently impacted. Very cool, more testing to come!

    Just tried it today on top of 2 weeks old Gyeon Prime and Gyeon One on the other test hood after first trying LA's Totally Awesome APC. LA's didn't do anything to Prime, had a few small patches of damage show up on One. After Strip Down both sections had larger patch areas of damage, One more than Prime. So it's significantly more effective than a strip wash soap at high dilution and at least more effective than LA's TA.
    Just watched your video. The initial performance looks good. But I would be curious if it is leaving surfactants behind that could possibly masking the hydrophobic properties of an LSP. It would be interesting to see an IPA wipe down to see if it is indeed masking or not. I could see it removing old waxes and sealants as they are done anyway after a couple months to a few months.

    He posted a follow up comment saying he tried an IPA wipe and the water behavor(or lack there of) was nearly the same. This stuff might be legit.
