I really liked it but knew it wouldn't do much on hard German paint. We've had a couple reviews here, but without an idea of the hardness of the paint or rough idea of the level of cut the product offers, I'm not sure how well it would work for me in some circumstances.
    I was talking about TMQs review on a white Mustang. Seemed like it corrected moderate swirls with an orange M37 medium polishing pad pretty well.

    I suppose that means it should have no issue removing any type of LSP for a one step correction and coating prep without any prior polishing being needed. Would still be interested if anyone tries that though. That’s basically my hopeful plan for this stuff. I love Essence but I always polish the previous LSP off before using it as CarPro recommends.

    I would call it medium. Imo pretty much the ideal hardness to work with.

    Wow...

    How was the wipe off? Had a feeling due oxidized paint on the trailer the the Z1 would have glued itself to the paint!

    Looks great...

    Looking forward to your thoughts!

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

    I let it rest for a couple mins, then did a couple more passes. I wasnít counting aloud, so forgive me.

    Hereís a video I made of the Z1:




    Iím a better photographer than a videographer. My speaking voice might be a little low, I thought the Bluetooth earbuds microphone was recording audio, it was not.

    And I donít claim to know everything about polishing.

    Very nice before and after pictures - especially for an old trailer with single stage white paint.


    Thank you for taking the time to take before and after pictures and the video.

    Ha ha...

    training yourself to count your passes out loud is a discipline. I just did compound and polish testing in the garage and after that I did a Test Spot on an old 2-door Chevy. For both I did count my section passes out loud but I had to mentally remind myself.

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

    After the initial polishing I noticed some spotting, blotch marks after wiping. Just a couple small ones.

    On the second test panel (not on video), I did a few rapid back and forth passes with light pressure then immediately wiped off. No residue left over.

    The blessing and curse of white paint. It looks great, but can mask the imperfections.

    Iím going to take an uneducated guess and say that the tiO2 and siO2 chemical resins really want to bond to the finish. That could explain why the wipe off may be a bit of a challenge. Although Iíve not experienced this with other primer polishes...but Essence, etc are finishers, not AIOís.

    NSP was a pleasure to work with. I could see the paint reflection coming through as the polish was removing the oxidation. It is pricey stuff, but letís call it premium. If itís a time saver (and it will be), Iím all for it.
