    Black and Dark Vehicle paint protection in 100+ Summer Heat

    I would coat both with CQuartz 3.0 or if you prefer a sealant, I would recommend Black Fire paint sealant.

    Not sure i trust myself doing a ceramic coating. Iv already put down 2 coats of Jet Seal, but i hear its doesnt last long, so I want to layer on some more protection. Have you used Black Fire? how did you like it? Any pics?

    There are some very user friendly coatings. Sealants I like Ultima Paint Guard Plus. WOWA product, great durability, looks, easy to keep clean.

    Lose that fear. Today's coatings are light years ahead of what they were like to apply even just 2-3 years ago. 22Ple, Cquartz and Gyeon are among some of the most friendly to use. I'm a Gyeon fan-boy now so I will say until I get my bottle of CQUK 3.0 to see how it is durring application, Gyeon has nailed their carrier solvents in terms of ease of use. No worries about gabbiness at all nor fear of high spots as it is very forgiving at wipe away time frame. IMO Gyeon Mohs is as easy to use as their CanCoat product. The latter is super easy and fast to apply too. I have it on my Q50 now and love it. Outside it lasting only 6+ months according to them, it's hydrophobic properties are insane and the gloss is very good.

    The new CQuartz UK 3.0 is much easier to use than the prior version. I just used it last weekend.

    If you want really easy the McKee’s 37 Coating is probably the easiest to apply. It looks great too! If you get some Hydro Blue you can use that periodically during the year to extend the protection & maintain an awesome gloss.

    There is no reason to be weary of applying a coating. One like the McKee’s 37 is hard to screwup. If you can apply a Sealant, you can apply Mckee’s 37 Coating.

    Since FK1000P “Hi-Temp” as the LSP
    isn’t quite cutting-the-mustard for you
    in the 100°+ Summer heat; then:

    I’ll suggest another “hot-environment”
    LSP that will, IMO, impart a shine that’ll
    more than please you:
    •Collinite Insulator Wax (#845)—a Wax
    that was originally formulated for use by
    electric power companies to protect/insulate
    electrical components against high-voltage
    power failures, fires, and explosions.

    •Ought to be more than adequate for
    temperatures of 100°+...

    Not sure I believe the insulator story. That sounds far-fetched. Getting the first coat prior to installation is easy but could you imagine trying to wax these insulators with 500KV+ in those transmission lines?

    Disclaimer: I really like Collinite.

    Thank you all for your feedback.

    Is this the one you’re talking about? McKee's 37 MK37-260 Paint Coating (Sio2 Enhanced New Formula)

    Do I layer it on top of the sealer or do I have to strip all that off??
