  1. Re: Best Ceramic Coating for New Orca Black Metallic Audi

    Agree. Rather than focusing on one you think looks best on a specific color, I'd say go for one with has other properties you are looking for like durability, application method, price, etc. I've...

    Re: 2 new to me brushes.

    How soft are the bristles on the Carand brush?

    I used the Mother's version for a while and did not find the bristles to be very soft. I'm currently using a generic one found at a big box store...
  3. Re: How to restore very slightly oxidized headlights to factory clarity?

    Good point!

    I didn't start polishing the headlights on any of my vehicles until they started turning cloudy. By then, there was little/no UV protection left and there was nothing lost by...
  4. Re: How to restore very slightly oxidized headlights to factory clarity?

    Another option which has worked really well for me is the Wolfgang Headlight kit sold here at AG.

    I like the two-step process and the small pads and cordless drill compatible backing plate. I...

  6. Re: Sonax PNS, GYEON Cancoat or Optimum Opti-Seal

    In my mid-west USA climate, CanCoat will easily last 10 months (maybe longer) with regular washes and occasional toppings with Cure. I was doing a torture test on my previous car, but traded it in...

    Re: Buffing too much ?

    Going forward I would highly recommend using a much milder approach to polishing out your truck. Just because there are some marks doesn't mean you need to go straight for a compound and cutting...

    Re: What do you keep in your car?

    I personally like the 8oz bottles even better for these reasons, but very few companies even offer them. Since I only polish out my vehicles every year or two, the stuff lasts forever.

    Poll: Re: Battle of Entry Level Coatings...

    That many layers of very durable products should last a really long time. My daughter's car has a single coat of CQuartz UK 2.0 and its going strong after 18 months when I saw it at Christmas time.

    If I had to choose between using CanCoat or CQuartz UK right now, I'd go with CQuartz. This is ONLY because a longer lasting coating fits my life better right now, not because of the quality of the...

    Poll: Re: Battle of Entry Level Coatings...

    My thoughts too. CQuartz Lite's closest competitor would be CanCoat. If you wanted a Gyeon One competitor I'd say it would be CQuartz or maybe GTechniq CSL.

    I'm currently using CQuartz UK on...

    Re: New M340i - Help me decide what to use!

    I really don't care about slickness and don't run my fingers over the paint all the time. I care how my cars look, how well they are protected, and how easy they are to maintain. When looking at it...

    It shouldn't be a surprise. CQuartz is offered at a reasonable price, is easy to apply, looks good, easy to maintain (don't need to do anything special), and lives up to it's durability claims. ...

    Great car and amazing color. By the looks of the wheels, you have some of the other performance options too, right?

    I'd go with a variation of Guz's suggestion. I'd simply coat it with CQuartz...

    Re: Black Painted Rims

    If you car puts out lots of heavy brake dust, P21S may not cut it. I used it while owning a BMW years ago and found my wash soap actually cleaned better...and was far cheaper.

  22. Re: Pinnacle Black Label Diamond Wheel Coating - Chemical Resistance
