    Re: No run trim protection?

    It’s not cheap but depending on the coating it can be used for other things too. I chose Dlux as that works for trim, wheels, headlights and taillights, etc. so that little $39 bottle (which is...

    Re: No run trim protection?

    Good to hear. I can’t make that claim as I didn’t use the product that long ago but on what I used it looks like day 1 and that was last year.

    Re: No run trim protection?

    Yes but faded is risky because if you need to restore with something like Solution Finish then you definitely don’t want to coat first. So those require some judgment call but on new trim coating is...

    Re: No run trim protection?

    I would guess 1 year. You’ll probably reapply before it’s really needed.

    Re: No run trim protection?

    Yeah, if it’s new trim I’d say coat it with Gyeon Trim or Carpro Dlux. Will look great for a long time.

    Re: McKeey's Plastic Trim Restorer = WETS?

    I use a small foam brush from Harbor Freight. Allow more precision and it’s so cheap I discard after use. I wait a little bit to wipe the excess. Usually do about 1/3 of the trim and come back to...

    Re: NEW McKess 37 pollen X

    You use bead maker when you want more pollen to stick to the paint. Maybe use BM first and then you’ll have plenty of pollen to test Pollen-X on.

    Re: NEW McKess 37 pollen X

    It says it leaves some protection behind and makes the next pollen removal easier. I would take that as it’s not ideal to be used on coatings as it will change then behavior of whatever is touching...

    Re: NEW McKess 37 pollen X

    I still think pollen is too abrasive to wipe. Sure, polymers encapsulate it but it might still lead to marring. Not sure I’d be brave enough to try this product.
  10. Re: "Acid baths" for ceramic coatings that have been on for 6 months plus???

    I guess that description you found doesn’t match the SDS then. In there they indicate 8.5 to 9. I guess once diluted it reaches something closer to pH neutral but the product itself is not really...
  11. Re: "Acid baths" for ceramic coatings that have been on for 6 months plus???

    Right but a pro might prefer something like Hyperwash for a better cost per wash. Since I only wash 2 cars Reset is great for me.
  12. Re: "Acid baths" for ceramic coatings that have been on for 6 months plus???

    I think Reset is not pH neutral, and it's not acid, it's slightly basic. If I remember correctly, it has a pH of 8.9. I'm pulling this from memory and not checking the SDS for it. That pH is...
  13. Re: Ceramic Coatings: Pinnacle Black Label vs CQuartz Lite

    Toyota 86 is the name they gave the former Scion FRS which is also the same as the Subaru BRZ. So it can be brand new :)

    Re: Product shelf life. Wolfgang

    It does seem more liquid than others even when brand new. I think if you shake it really well you'll be fine using it.

    Re: Cquartz

    If you have another car you'd like to coat, plan on doing that in the coming few months so you use the rest of that coating. Or post it up for trade in the Samples thread, 3/4 of a 30ml bottle...

    Re: What did you do today, in regards to detailing?

    Didn't last long, today has been a crappy weather day. I was happy to finish coating my wife's car last Monday and it stayed dry for a whole week, today is the first time it's seeing some rain. ...
  19. Re: Are we making things worse by using multiple products for topping up?

    Same for me. I don't want to top my coating and then experience inferior performance. I'd prefer a coating that doesn't last as long than me having to top it like crazy and know the coating is...

    Re: Car attracts dust more now

    I think Bead Maker should be renamed to Static Maker. I also found it to make the paint more static and dust attracting than any other drying aid I've used until now.
  21. Re: Dumb question on using iron remover for first time

    Always for me. I coat the car in Iron-X before the car gets wet. Avoids diluting the product. Then after letting it dwell rinse and proceed to wash.
  22. Re: How often do you apply your spray sealant as a topper?

    I use Ech2o on my Syncro car as a drying aid diluted 1:25. Some may say that's a topper but it really isn't a strong enough dilution to be consider a topper, it won't last. I don't want to mask the...

    Re: Please chime in on CarPro Gliss v2...

    So between Sunday and Monday I got to apply this to my wife's car. I went for good synergy and used Essence + UK 3.0 + Gliss V2 (thanks again BudgetPlan1 for sending me your leftover coatings).
