    While a lot of us would have liked to jump right in on the deep end of starting with a more aggressive sanding approach for this project, a few things would have kept us from doing so. One of them being the quality of paintwork.

    That's how I was thinking, play it safe. I found out the painter is supposed to have a great reputation although I've never heard of him. He supposedly put a lot of paint on the hood and that could be the reason for the mottling.

    Either way, when I'm in doubt I take the safe way, not the "Mike will buy you a new paint job" way.

    To this,




    and it really looked like this with dramatically improved D.O.I. - well that's success to me.




    Note: I had a hard time capturing the D.O.I. when holding the camera at the same distance as the before pictures and when I got up close it darkened the picture.


    Also - I machine sanded twice with #5000 grit. I was only going to sand once but I didn't get the pictures I wanted from the first sanding so I re-sanded to get the pictures I wanted and while doing the second sanding process I did the full meal deal, that is about 10 to 12 section passes over each section of paint sanded. (both times)

    The owner was happy. I know the way it looked AFTER I warmed the entire car over is more of what he was always hoping his bitchen 1967 Camaro Convertible would look like, not how it looked in the before state.


    This is one of the reasons I like to detail cars. I meet people that own something cool but it doesn't look right. They can't fix it and they don't trust anyone else to "touch" their toy. So it simply looks like crap all the time they own it. Then, somehow fate works it's magic and like many of you, my name gets passed onto the car owner and he takes a chance on me and the results are exactly what he's hoped and dreamed about when it comes to his cool car.


    A story with a happy ending.

    On paper, because it includes Si02, it should have better durability

    Good question and same answer as above, because it includes Si02 it should have better durability and longer protection.

    I know that actual durability depends on many factors, but I am able to get a good 6 months from DGPS.
    I just scanned the product page and didn't see any claims for durability. My guess would be for the person that gets 6 months durability from Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant 3.0 - if applied correctly and treated the same way for washing, drying and wiping, you would get at least that for this new product and probably longer.

    Great questions guys, thanks for asking.

    Re: Review: Wolfgang Si02 Paint Sealant

    Also just to add for all of those that will read this thread into the future, (I always type for the future, never the present)


    The question of,

    How long will product X last?



    Comes up all the time and I wrote an article that I think explains the answer really well. You can find it and read it here,

    How long will a ceramic coating last on my car?


    Note the title states CERAMIC COATING but in reality, I answer the question and the answer would be true for ANY LSP or paint protection product.

    Guys,

    Trying to discern the differences of WG Uber Ceramic Spray and the Si02 Paint Sealant? Wanting to try but a little lost in these new technologies...

    Thanks,
    Wig

    Application is an obvious difference. CSC likely has better long term longevity and easier to apply. The sealant has strong sealant properties and may or may not resist etchings better. My testing has found that the sealant has slightly better water behavior up front. Here’s a thread that has new comparison tests in progress (Mike also has one I couldn’t find right away):

    @ acuRAS82

    I may go with the WG Ceramic Spray as the heat and dust here in the desert can be brutal on your paint. Would I be able to add a layer of Souveran Wax on top of the ceramics after it has cured? I love the warm glow it adds to my silver finish as I don't care super gloss without a little warmth.

    Thanks again,
    Wig

    Sure you can add Souveran on top. It will supersede the coating properties (self-cleaning, etc.), but you should get the change in look.

    FYI, I don’t know for sure which of CSC or sealant has better longevity. Was just a guess. As far as looks, Souveran would also probably look great on the sealant. But traditionally, I *think* truer coatings do best in desert atmosphere.

    Thanks and will find all the products needed to prepare my car for the coating and looking forward to this detail.

    One last question ?

    If I use the WG Ceramic Spray Coating, which of my current products could I use for paint correction?

    - Pinnacle Black Label Surface Cleaning Polish
    - Pinnacle Advance Finishing Polish
    - Pinnacle Advance Swirl Remover
    - Pinnacle Jeweling Wax
