    Re: CQuartz UK and a Jaguar F-Pace S

    I do the headlights, taillights, and the sunroof with the coating. With so much left over, I probably could have done the side windows too.

    I'm not a fan of coating the front/rear glass for...

    Re: CQuartz UK and a Jaguar F-Pace S

    For me the amount of product is a bigger problem than the price in some regards. I can do two cars with a 30mL bottle. I can do 2 mid-sized SUV's like this Jag with a 50mL bottle and still have...

    Re: CQuartz UK and a Jaguar F-Pace S

    The TiO2 is being replaced, but I don't see it as a bad thing. CarPro's CQuartz coatings are always solid players in the market and I don't see why a new product wouldn't uphold their reputation for...

    Re: CQuartz UK and a Jaguar F-Pace S

    The flash time for CQuartz 3.0 varies based on environmental conditions. At no point would I consider it wipe on/wipe off.

    In 70F weather with moderate humidity I'd say flash time is around 2~3...
  5. Re: Question on quick interior detailer products?

    I too typically use an interior detailer/protectant product.

    I honestly don't know how long the products last and I think it would be really hard to measure objectively. Seasonal abuse from...
  6. Re: New product idea? Thick, temporary paint protection that is very easy to apply and remove

    I've not had a good experience with Track Armour. I bought a roll for long road trips in our horribly bug infested warm seasons.

    If your vehicle has lots of curved and angled surfaces, it is...

    Re: Yes, I bought a KIA

    Good to see the Stingers getting some love. After seeing almost none on the road for the last couple of years, I'm starting to see quite a few now...to include one in an blazing yellow color I...
  8. Re: Coating levelling - possible to remove too much?

    As I mentioned before, no, I don't think it's possible to over buff. The fact it is already tacky and hard to buff means the solids are already bonding to the surface and you're not going to buff...

    Re: What kind of marring would this cause

    I'm not sure how abrasive a moose tongue is, but it couldn't be any worse than an automated car wash.

    That would make for a great story.

    Q: What happened to this car? You take it through...
  10. Re: Coating levelling - possible to remove too much?

    Are you talking about during the initial application?

    I haven't used CQuartz Lite, but with similar products like Gyeon CanCoat, or really any coating, if it is hard to remove you're waiting too...
  11. Re: Stored a Nanoskin autoscrub pad for 1yr, had stuck to plastic bag...still OK to use?

    It may be OK if it didn't damage the surface, but I would be very careful in using it.

    I had the same thing happen to mine when I tried out the same pad. It was only in the bag for a few months...

    Re: Questions about sealant choice

    It's only the coatings that typically harden the MF towels. I've used Gyeon Cure and CarPro Elixr for some time and two seperate applications of Wolfgang's SiO2 Paint sealant with no issues.

    Re: Questions about sealant choice

    Just so you're aware; many LSP's are very difficult to apply in colder weather. Each one has its own issues in the cold and which leaves me to abandon all detailing other than washing from around...
  14. Re: Optimum Gloss Coat on Dark Truck - help for a beginner.

    Lighting when applying a coating is almost more important than technique...almost.

    Dark and light paint colors both have their challenges when seeing the flashing of the coating and the lighting...

    Re: Ceramic 3-1 help please

    Agree with all points. It was probably applied too thick and either another bit of the product or a wash will remove those spots

    I've found these SiO2 sprays do not work well when directly...

    Re: HELP ME MAKE UP MY MIND

    I went with the G15 and have been very happy with it.

    As a hobbyist, the G15 was a no-brainer for me. Between the price and the great warranty, I had no reason to look at much more costly...

    Do I see two different thicknesses of pads on your cart in some of those pictures?

    Short version: Love my new G15. Have questions about pad selection.

    Re: Winter Prep Question for you all

    If you just clayed six months ago and the car hasn't seen much road time, then I'd say "no" to claying it again. My experience is a well protected car which has been kept clear really only needs to...

    PNS may darken the paint, but your polishing does much more to create the difference you see. Heavy swirling will make the paint look lighter, hazy, and cloudy. When you refined the surface with...

    Re: Winter Prep Question for you all

    I have similar thoughts, but it depends on the tools you have available and the weather.

    If you have DA polisher and the weather (or a garage) will cooperate, I'd give the car a quick, light...
  21. Re: Make Up Pads for applying Coatings to Wheels?

    You could, but the entire package of 8 is only $5. I'd much rather spend the small amount of money on these than spend the time/effort trying to cleanly cut an applicator into pieces.

    I tried...
  22. Re: Make Up Pads for applying Coatings to Wheels?

    CarPro makes these applicators which are inexpensive and come in a pack with different shaped ends. They are great for wheels and getting around right spots like side mirrors.

    Re: What are these spots on my car hood?

    Agree on the etching. To me they look like a bird dropping(s) that wasn't washed off in time and etched the clear coat.

  25. Re: What is your general rule for when you polish (not compound) your car?~~~

    My polishing interval depends on the LSP in use.

    When using a traditional sealant I was on a six month cycle of LSP application but only polish every 12 months. I'd give a car a light one-step...
