  1. Re: 12 month old car with good paint - what correction steps ?

    That’s the video I found when I was searching earlier Mike and it was extremely helpful !

    Just seems that I need to pick up a few more pads before I start to make life a little bit easier.

  5. 12 month old car with good paint - what correction steps ?

    Hi guys,

    I kinda think I know what the answer to this, but would like your opinions on this.

    Have a 12 month old car that I previously corrected and can-coated. Now the can coat is probably...

    Re: Applying Skin Down the Road

    Hi Jeff instead of starting a new thread, I have a similar question.

    Re: CQuartz High Spots After One Week

    Man, I’m so discouraged from doing my second car after this experience.

    You really need perfect conditions to do this kind of thing at home - my garage lighting is not the best.

    Might stick to...

    Re: CQuartz High Spots After One Week

    I just want to say curse the high spots !!! They are so hard to see.

    Applied CQ UK yesterday but found and fixed a few this morning. And then found a few more !!

    Any tips on finding them? I...
  10. Iron decontamination / clay/ paint maintenance question

    Hi all

    So, after a few months, there's no doubt the car with a MOHS Quartz coating would have attracted some iron, fallout from the environment etc.

    Will using the gyeon iron spray on a quartz...
  11. Re: Newly CanCoated car - door scratched - what to do.

    So I ended doing as you guys advised ...

    * wash
    * no need clay, still pristine
    * 2 stage correction for scratched areas - I did the whole top quarter of the driver door for the heck of it ...
    *...
  12. Re: Newly CanCoated car - door scratched - what to do.

    Thanks for the video - there's very little in it isn't there.

    If I can save paying $1400 from getting the job done professionally I am happy.

    I will however adjust my expectations somewhat that...
  13. Re: Newly CanCoated car - door scratched - what to do.

    I had a look earlier ... it's SiO2 content is >10% so I expected some protection .. but clearly didn't get that much.

    Again, as you guys have mentioned, it was never advertised to provide scratch...
  14. Re: Newly CanCoated car - door scratched - what to do.

    All I am really after is to prevent/minimise swirls/scratches from washing - this is after all, where most cars get their swirls from ! I am not after ground breaking scratch resistance.

    Now, I...
  15. Re: Newly CanCoated car - door scratched - what to do.

    Don't tell me that ... I already have a package of MOHS ready to go lol.

    I am sure it's definitely going to provide better scratch resistance than the CanCoat but at the same time, I am not...
  16. Re: Newly CanCoated car - door scratched - what to do.

    Ahhh absolutely ! CanCoat was really just the practice run with using the DA polisher for the first time and applying a SiO2 coating. I will just re-do the car with MOHS in 6-12 months.

    Have to...
  17. Re: Newly CanCoated car - door scratched - what to do.

    Gotcha ! I will start with the Polish (2400) as opposed to the Cut (400).

    Will only use the Cut if necessary.
  18. Re: Newly CanCoated car - door scratched - what to do.

    I should update to say a 'scratch' would be an exaggeration and it is more of a marring which could only be seen at certain angles ...

    Which was then exacerbated by me using my stupid fingers to...
  19. Re: Newly CanCoated car - door scratched - what to do.

    Thanks so much guys. Morning ruined already by wife and the scratch lol

    So much to learn, especially with this being only my second car coated with it.

    So should i use some masking tape to...
  20. Re: Newly CanCoated car - door scratched - what to do.

    Argh ... thanks ..

    I thought it was clean enough. Washed only a day ago, but noted for future.
  21. Re: Newly CanCoated car - door scratched - what to do.

    Ok cool.

    Just had a quick inspection and my few finger rubs has caused a few more scratches !!

    Thought CanCoat would give it a bit more protection than that ... it’s been over a week. Should...

    Re: Using spray wax on freshly painted bumper

    I have been told to wait 30 days before polishing and sealing my bumper bar (can polish now, but do not wax it).

    I'd just leave it until then.

    Is it OK to use a spray wax on top of the CanCoat coating .. I will probably use this alternately on a weekly basis with the bottle of Cure that I am currently using.
