    Now available - Dr. Beasley's Z1 Ceramic AIO Primer

    I took delivery of a tube of Z1 and will be using it on a new’ish red Toyota Tundra. And it’ll get coated with Dr Beasley’s Nano Resin coating.

    Mike, is Z1 compatible with the Uro Fiber 50/50 pads?

    Craig....Awesome. Let us know what you think.

    Mind you---not user friendly and can be a bit of a pain to remove. If that happens--run polisher over and quickly wipe. It'll be easy then.

    And newish Tundra----go with foam polishing pads. Test. It should correct and gloss will be off charts.

    Maybe - depends on if the paint is hard or soft.

    Fibers are abrasives and on soft and medium paint the fibers themselves, regardless of the product will lead to micro-marring of the paint.

    You rarely see me use micro-fiber pads. One reason is due to the micro-marring problem.

    Re: Now available - Dr. Beasley's Z1 Ceramic AIO Primer

    With what was said above...Go foam.

    Me---I'll start at middle with polishing pads.

    Or go lighter--white soft pads.

    No need for cutting or hard pads since Tundra is on the newish side.

    Re: Now available - Dr. Beasley's Z1 Ceramic AIO Primer

    So I could use this product and then top with the Pinnacle Black Label Diamond Ceramic Coating Pro?

    How long do you think the coating would last?

    The description of the Z1 says a year or more with the proper care. Perhaps topping with an accommodating 1 year coating would be best?

    Agree on the white foam pads.

    I've never used Z1, but Toyota paint is really soft. You can easily one-step polish most mild/moderate swirls away with a finishing polish and a medium cut polishing pad like a white Lake Country Flat or Thin Pro pad. I'd be afraid of a MF pad leaving a haze you'd have to go back and polish out...defeating the purpose of using Z1 in the first place.

    Yes - or any brand. That's the "open source" feature of this product. Probably holds true for other current products like this and as I predicted here,

    Prediction - More one-step Cleaner/Coatings or Primers


    It will hold true for future Ceramic AIOs introduced into the future. I know this product has already made an impact in the "market" as well as the detailing world.

    I always love the above question. Here's the deal, after installing the coating if you put the car in a garage and leave it there - it will last forever.

    Now if you put the car back on the road or back into service, then how long ANYTHING will last depends on how the paint is

    TOUCHED

    I cover this in my article here,

    How long will a ceramic coating last on my car?


    Actually, the two things I probably talk about the most in the car detailing world are the ideas of,

    1: Abrasive Technology

    2: Washing cars - or think of it as TOUCHING cars - When you wash a car you touch the paint and how you "touch" the paint determines how long anything lasts and also how long the car will look good.

    Make sense?

    Here's two washing scenarios.

    1: Run a coated car through the brush-style swirl-o-matic car wash

    2: Carefully hand wash a car using the multiple towel method I share here


    Of the two cars,

    Which coating will last the longest?

    Which car will look good the longest?



    See how it ALWAYS comes down to how a car is touched. I know this simply sound too too simple and most OCD type car detailing fanatics, both the enthusiast group and the pro detailer group wants to think and believe it's all about the specific BRAND of coating you invest your mind and money into - but at the end of the day - this just isn't so.

    And them there are they key words - proper care - and this means how you touch the paint. Be it wiping it or washing it. We all touch our cars paint, the difference is in how and what we touch it with.


    Take a look at this article,

    How, why & when to inspect your microfiber towels when detailing cars

    I think you'll see how getting the most out of any brand of coating, be it a 1-year product or a 100-year product - will all come down to proper care and a HUGE part of proper care is TOUCHING the paint with things that are clean, soft and UNCONTAMINATED.

    I believe this is the best approach for any daily driver for the reasons I share here.

    The above is going deep. But it's only deep for people that can and will READ. And of course, after reading, thinking about these deep things.
