    Self Heal Plus: 2018 Durango SRT

    I had an 11 day vacation that got mostly filled doing 3 vehicles. This is the third.

    This gentleman found me via my website and wanted his Durango SRT done in the very best coating that there is: Feynlab Self Heal Plus. 7 year warranty. A mixture of 6 different chemicals on the paint....thickest coating around for maximum depth of shine and most protection. I hadn't done a full heal job since last year so I was a bit nervous until I started along. It was very contamination-free but the paint seemed stained in some areas. An intensive cleaning and decontamination effort was put forth!

    Here it is as it arrived:





















    See the staining?

















    First up was to clean the wheels, tires and wells. The wheels were getting pulled so the barrels and calipers could be coated too. The paint was aggressively cleaned to remove the staining and in spite of the apparent lack of contamination, was shot with 3D BDX regardless. It was clayed with Riccardo yellow.

    Here is one of the wheels as it's getting coated:











    The calipers and faces were coated with Feynlab Wheel and Caliper whereas the barrels were coated with DLux.











    The paint was given a one step polish of Duragloss Squeaky Clean + white B/S pad + 3401. The non painted areas, other than the rear trim that was done with DLux, were coated with Ceramic. All the painted areas were treated to Feynlab Self Heal Plus, or Full Heal as it's sometimes referred to. Here it is, inside and out:














































































    Thanks for looking. I was very proud of this one!!!!

    I was surprised to see that the coating carries a 7 year warranty. That’s incredible. Beautiful white paint for a family rocket ship. I bet the client felt like he was given a new car for the very first time picking it up. It’s spotless.

    Nice job Richy. A seven year warranty seems like a lot.

    With Feynlab, there's no BS. I bet it will last longer. There is a yearly checkup and I'll put some fresh Top Coat on, but the self repair will stay strong all on its own.

    Ron, not for this company it's not. Their stuff is the best IMO.

    It looks great as usual Richey, the pictures actually loaded...once lol Now they get half way and disappear. Is the application of self heal fairly easy? I know ceramic is. I haven't tried Top Coat yet. As soon as I'm healed up and going again I'm going to try it out.

    Dave, I don't get the issues with my pics. I won't go back to Photobucket, so I hope IMGUR continues to work...for most anyway, LOL.
    SHP has a learning curve. You're mixing chemicals and whatnot, so that part alone is more complicated. Not a big deal and I've mixed chemicals before so that was nothing new to me.
