    Pinnacle Black Label Diamond Paint Sealant mini-review

    I had a chance to do a 2-step and LSP a week ago (6/25). My go-to sealant in 2018 has been PBL Sealant. I’ve applied to a 2018 Blue Equinox, a 2016 Black Audi, and now my old silver Acura. It wins in all categories... looks, durability, beading, ease of use, and it spreads really well.

    Wash: N-914 RW

    Decon:
    Blackfire clay mitt (sides and bottoms)/Pinnacle poly clay (verticals). N-914 clay lube (WW dilution).
    -No Iron Remover used, but was last done in April.

    Polish:
    Mckees 37 Fast Compound; orange 5.5”/3.5” LC Force Hybrid pads (yellow occasionally where needed)
    Mckees 37 Fast Polish; white 5.5”/3.5” LC Force Hybrid pads

    LSP:
    2 coats PBL Diamond Paint Sealant, 12 hours apart.
    24+ hours before any moisture on the final coat.

    Below are after pictures. I forgot to take before pics but the car had a years worth of swirls, with me touching it with either waterless, Rinseless, QD or two bucket wash 1-2 times per week during this time frame. Not horrible, but noticeable to my eye.

    I have a silver car and your Acura looks awesome!
    I have only used PBL Sealant one time. Do you think the second coat makes a difference? If so I’ll give it a try.

    So, I did only one coat on the blue Equinox, which I donít get to see often (belongs to my mom). Iíve done 2 coats on this car and the wifeís Audi and both came out great. Therefore I can only say that two coats looks great on both my cars. Might be worth a try.

    I noticed today (a week and a half later) the metallic flake sparkles in the sun... and the car has been through massive rainstorms the last few days, so it’s not like it’s perfectly clean. But I do also admire the self-cleaning of this sealant. Either way, I swear the finish looks better now than the first few days after application.
