    303 Graphine review!

    So I know there's threads for this particular product and even more You Tube videos by MUCH better and respected people than myself but I thought I'd share my experience with it after using it "officially" this afternoon.

    I was one of the lucky people to receive a bottle of the "Launch Edition" product. I thought today was a good day to "officially" use it for the 1st time because the weather is about to change and here in Chicagoland you don't take chances, go for it on a 70 degree day in Octiber.

    The car was already cleaned yesterday but I gave it a N914 writedown to ensure a very clean surface. A little goes a long way, so I sprayed 2 sprays into my red foam applicator and worked the product in per directions, a cross hatch pattern. You'll see it start to haze and turn white, simply grab you mf towel and wipe away. There's no dust and very minimal effort is needed here. I moved around the car in no time, did the glass and trim too.

    RESULTS:

    WOW! I knew the results would be good but I wasn't expecting it to be THIS good303 Graphine review!My car is pretty well maintained and was coated in mid-June and topped with many products. The car has been outside 24/7 since the end of June and will be till God knows when, so I'm expecting this product to carry me through the winter, a great, durable MEGA topper for my ceramic paint coating from TAC System which is Power Plus.

    The Gloss, the gloss, the gloss....my God the Gloss (can I say this, LOL) I know these graphene products have only been out for a year, this one for 10 days, so there's no way to speak about longevity but stay "tuned".

    Btw I watched an interview on Pan the Organizers channel with David Gutierrez, lead chemist at 303 and even though the 2 of them were talking waaaaay over my head I was able to take away a couple things, namely, the ability of this product to "cross link" ontop of whatever you have applied to your car, perfect for someone like me.

    Thanks for the review. Did some research on it. Sounds easy enough to apply. Cross hatch pattern. Haze. Remove. States even applying in direct sun is no issue.

    Did you notice a darkening effect?

    Why the cross hatch application?

    Cross hatching just ensures even coverage. Less chance to miss a spot

    ***UODATE***

    So after some rain the past couple days I decided to do a WW to the ES. Now I should say the car wasn't driven in the rain, it sat in the rain and the sun came out and basically dried it up. I was left with dried dirt spots on the paint, the rain might not have been very hard, so that's what we've got here.

    In my quest to use up products, I reached for Tri-Nova WW for the job, a lesser known product line owned by Gold Eagle who also owns 303/104+ octane boost/Sta-bil to name a few. This is solid product and cleaned the paint very well, lots of dirt on my plush, edgeless mf towels. I used 5 of them to get around the car, used a Griot's Garage PFM for the after buff, it was 44 degrees doing this.

    Ofcoarse the paint looks great after a week of initial application, looking forward to when it rains more consistently and the dreaded white stuff and ALL it brings303 Graphine review! Btw I ran the car through a very good, safe carwash on Tuesday and needless to say the graphene laughed at the water during the air drying process, it didn't stand a chance.

    I have to say I was surprised at the amount of dried dirt on the car after the rain but maybe it just wasn't raining hard enough or long enough303 Graphine review!
