    Looks like next weekend is when I will be "going to town" on the Abarth. Friday night will be chemical decon and mechanical recon, then the baggie test and if need be, Griots clay bar. Once done, I head to bed and get well rested for the next day, where the polishing gets done. I was very impressed with Optimum Hyper Polish so I bought a bottle but we will see how it does on light swirls on a DD. Then I will use the bottle of paint prep because I have it to use and then coat the car twice. Once done, sometime on Saturday evening, it will sit until Monday morning when I leave for work, giving it over 24 hrs out of the environment.

    I'm deciding if I should use my DP paint prep instead of the Griots paint prep liquid spray...thoughts?

    So...it was in the mid 80's Tue and Wed, 80 yesterday, nice trend right....today, drizzle and upper 40's. Tomorrow was supposed to be mid 70's but that has now changed and for the worse, so I'm not coating my car if its going to be in the upper 60's. IMO my experience with DG paint coating wasn't very good because I coated the car when the temp was in the mid 50's outside and a little warmer down in the garage, so I'll have to wait.....

    stay "tuned"

    Tampa this week.

    Tuesday 98 Wednesday 98 Thursday 96 today 97

    We broke record high temps all four days and just missed all time record high of 99. That's in the shade, throw the sun factor in and it's freaking hot down here, Florida hot!!!

    Roger... what temps are you looking for to coat the car?

    Ugh, high 90's? Man I hope you have AC.

    Well it's 48 outside right now and because the garage is partially underground it's cool down here. I was hoping to work on the car when it's mid to upper 70's because I'd like the curing time to be done in better temps.

    I guess I'll just have to wait it out till next weekend, Memorial Day weekend, burgers, brats and detailing...stay "tuned" 👈

    I'd wait for the temp and humidity to come up a bit. WG Uber is pretty easy to apply, but you'll be better when it's warmer.
