    Re: Sealant comparison

    I keep forgetting how challenging it is to test products in the winter. Washed the Rover with CarPro reset: pressure washed, washed using a Big Red Sponge, and pressure washed to rinse. It's hard to...
  2. Poll: Re: Longest lasting Synthetic Paint Sealant for Daily Driver? (poll)

    Exactly what I was thinking too. I can't see why you'd want a layer of anything with less longevity than your LSP under your LSP.


    Hard for us to believe too. Extreme claims require extreme...

    Noticed an issue with the spreadsheet earlier today. A typo was keeping all the data from showing in the first graph. Now fixed. Link in my sig.

    Agree. 915 should be doing at least as well. Maybe I had an application issue on my part?

    Re: Can we cut the SiO2 coating nonsense out?

    Coatings are good and marketing BS is alive and well. Both are true. Read reviews here and elsewhere and they'll steer you toward the better coatings and better values. Wild claims are likely just...

    Re: Nano ceramic coating is perfect to car paint?

    Clearly English isn't their first language so I'll cut them some slack for that. Doesn't appear to be spam since there's no links. I can't tell if they're saying coatings can prevent rock chips.

    Re: Sealant comparison

    I guess we'll see how it holds up. It comes in a metal bottle and I've kept it sealed tight. Doesn't appear to have solidified and looks ok. This is more of a comparison of performance on a polished...

    Re: Sealant comparison

    Agree. Got the idea from Cruzscarwash. Should have noted that my DG Coating is also a couple of years old, so we'll have to see how it does. I had it sealed up well and it's remained liquid, so...

    Re: Sealant comparison

    Over a coated car I really don't know. I can't say how any of these will perform over a coating. If you assume it's the same as going over clear coat, I like Sonax PNS for ease of application and...

    Re: Duragloss 601 Helps or Hinders Layering?

    Good question about 601 that I've asked myself a few times. As others have said I can't see how you'd get much with layering. If you do I would not use 601 on the top layer. I don't know if 601 adds...

    Washed the Rover the other day with CarPro Reset. It got rained on and as too dirty to use N-914. Boxster is with the wife. I won't get to it until this weekend.

    Good catch, Tony. I somehow hadn't noticed that before. I haven't noticed any difference in water behavior when using the DG car soap, but it seems like a good idea to excluding it from washing test...
