    Re: Hybrid Solutions- A Brand of it's own!

    Very interested. Questions...is the spray coating designed to go over the AIO? Iím guessing the wet coat is designed as a drying aid to boost protection? Can the detailer be used the same way?

    I wrote to Turtle Wax and yes, these products are all designed to work together. You just have to wait 24 hours before applying the spray coating over the AIO and 24 hours to wash or do anything to the spray coating. After the 24 hours, you can use the wet wax or spray detailer.

Anyway, once I polished the paint with Turtle Wax Clean Finish Polishing Compound, application and removal was a breeze. No smearing or streaking at all.
    Took your advice about prepping the surface and revisited the application this morning. Applied to trunk lid.
    Wiped the morning dew off.
    Cleaned with P21s paint cleanser.
    Wiped down twice with Griots paint prep.
    Final wipe with distilled water.
    Applied the HS ceramic spray sparingly with one eagle edgeless.
    Buffed with second eagle edgeless.

    The result was no streaking and a nice moderately slick and glossy surface. Will probably get slicker as the day goes on. I'm happy now.

    So essentially the trunk lid is now my test panel. My car is parked outside 24/7. If I like what I see in a couple of weeks I'll apply it to the entire car. Whether I move forward depends on dust attraction, water spotting, gloss retention and of course durability.

    It's been three full weeks and the TWHS coating is failing. The trunk lid beads if you lightly mist it but if I run a hose over it it takes at least 20 seconds for the water to fully evacuate. The water sheets off slowly like a coating that's on it's way out.


    Just to add some background. The car sits outside 24/7 in the full sun all day. It's rained hard three times and I've washed the car three times, once with Hyper wash, twice with Reset. I've driven maybe 200 miles, once in the rain. Today after I washed the car (Reset) is when I noticed how slowly the water was sheeting off the trunk lid. The Duragloss 601/105 I applied seven weeks ago to the rest of the car is still going strong and evacuating water fast. This ceramic spray coating reminds me of Mothers CMX. Three good weeks then a noticeable drop off in performance. On the plus side the TW didn't attract dust and I didn't notice any abnormal spotting. I guess If you don't mind applying monthly this could be a good product for you.

    JMO. The amount of prep I had to do to get this stuff to lay on streak free is bit much to do on a monthly basis for me. YMMV.
