  1. Re: CanCoat Maintenance Product Cure vs Wetcoat

    I use Ech2O at 1:20 and still think it is a bit thick for a QD! It works so easily I don't really mind, but can't help but wonder if I would get similar results if I thinned it out even more.

    I...
  2. Re: Durability Test: Wolfgang SiO2 Paint Sealant

    An option might be to get one of the little 10ml sample bottles directly from CarPro. They are only about $20. Coat one area like half the roof or a trunk lid and put sealant on the rest of the...
  3. Re: Has anyone used the new 'restorative' MF detergents?

    I haven't used either of those two, but I did recently try the Griot product recently. It was the first time I'd used anything like it.

    I noticed my drying towels which weren't drying as well do...

    Re: Brand New Wheel Coating

    In my post above I used CQuartz TiO2 on those satin wheels. I doubt CQuartzUK would change anything either.
  5. Re: Durability Test: Wolfgang SiO2 Paint Sealant

    Yes, I polished out the car prior to application. There was a coating on it prior to this sealant application and for testing purposes I wanted a bare surface. After polishing, I applied it with my...

    Re: Brand New Wheel Coating

    The coating may not add any noticeable gloss at all. I coated a set of satin gray OZ wheels on my last car and there was no difference in appearance after applying the coating.
  7. Re: CanCoat Maintenance Product Cure vs Wetcoat

    From my experience, I wouldn't use CanCoat as a QD. I like my QD's to be a simple spray on/wipe off product to get rid of random smudges, bird bombs, or water spots after a wash. Like Guz...

    Re: Brand New Wheel Coating

    When I coated a new set of wheels, I hit them with an APC and a soft cloth to clean off any grime from shipping. I followed that up Eraser and then applied the coating. Like others have said, no...

    Re: ECH2O on CanCoat

    I typically use it as a QD at 1:20 and it works great! My go-to for coated vehicles. Far more economical than dedicated QD sprays.
  10. Re: Durability Test: Wolfgang SiO2 Paint Sealant

    The time period I used it really isn't that dusty in my area. During the fall harvest time we do get a lot of dust and plant debris in the air and I don't recall the noticing it was any worse than...
  11. Re: Finishing glaze - how large is working area each time ?

    Like many other's already posting here, I'll use the 2'x2' as a starting point and from there I'll let the panels on the vehicle be my guide and adjust to roughly the same amount of square area. ...
  12. Re: Thanks to Mothers for Sponsoring Commercial-free Formula One TV Coverage !

    What network is Formula One showing on these days. I only casually follow the series these days, but wouldn't mind seeing a commercial free race. That's huge.

    Someone needs to do the same for...
  13. Re: CanCoat Maintenance Product Cure vs Wetcoat

    I liked Cure and didn't notice it having any real effect on the water behavior of CanCoat; beading and sheeting were still excellent after it was applied. My only advice would be to dilute it 1:1 to...

    Re: I did a thing

    From my perspective, you did the right thing. I have the mindset that cars are to be driven and enjoyed. If aren't doing that because you're happily putting on miles in something else, then it is...
  15. Re: Blackfire Pro Ceramic Coating, "Black Edition".

    I can't speak for anything with graphene in it, but I do think the addition of ceramic ingredients to products does provide some benefits. I saw this first hand with my winter test of Wolfgang's...
  16. Re: Best Carnauba wax for shine/gloss red car !

    I'm surprised no one mentioned Poorboy's Natty's line of carnauba's. They used to get quite a bit of discussion years ago.

    If I had a garage queen it would get waxed and I'd probably either go...
  17. Re: Blackfire Pro Ceramic Coating, "Black Edition".

    I wouldn't let this experience keep you away from coatings. Not all are created equal.

    From my experience CQuartz UK has fantastic sheeting and beading; the best I've ever tried. Keeping my car...
  18. Re: Prepping for Ceramic Coating after NXT 2.0 Application

    I missed your mention of correcting the paint. I see that now.

    The Meguiars 205 should work, but I'm not familiar at all with the Mother's products. As long as you use a light polishing product...
  19. Re: Prepping for Ceramic Coating after NXT 2.0 Application

    The only way to be completely sure the sealant is totally gone (especially a recent application) and the surface is ready coating is to mechanically polish it off with a light finishing polish and a...
  20. Re: Griots G9: Griots 5" backing plate vs the one Autogeek includes (yellow one)

    I haven't compared the two backing plates on the same polisher, but I have used the yellow AG backing plate on my old polisher and the Griots one on my G15. Both are 5".

    The G15 backing plate...

    Re: G9 gets hot

    Where are you feeling the heat? What was the weather like, or how warm was your garage?

    I used my G15 a couple weeks ago to polish out my car and never felt any heat at all, granted it was only...

  23. Re: What compound do you use on Hard audi paint?

    I've used Blackfire's compound on my black metallic Mk6 GTI while I owned it, and DP's compound on a neighbor's black metallic Porsche Cayenne. Both probably have the same paint as your S4, it was...

    This becomes a real rabbit hole. Other than...
