    Re: I put my money where my mouth is

    That must be some pearl white metallic paint? Looks like Cinderella’s neck at the gala before midnight. Shimmering and smooth.

    Are you going to top with anything (AdvanceCoat Gloss, PlasmaCoat)? Maybe I’m thinking too far ahead about your own vehicle... very well, doesn’t need anything, ever.

    I'm not knocking your work Mikey or choice in coating but this is the 1st time I've heard of a TWENTY FIVE year coatingI put my money where my mouth isI put my money where my mouth is

    Write Jim Lafeber (Dr Beasley himself) and ask. It's what is posted on the coating itself and site, and need 3rd party testing to verify it somehow. Jim's a chemist and owns/works in the detailing field. It is a bold statement, however the maintenance is no different than washing and quarterly application of Advance Coat. It's a self-healing coating that is 100% solids. It doesn't flash when applied and it is thick. As for paint jobs lasting, I have a 15 year old Toyota Camry that I've cared for and it's just as good as when I bought it because I've taken care of it. If something is cared for and maintained it will last.

    Thank you. It is "wind chill white pearl". The coating requires a quarterly application of AdvanceCoat Gloss and general washing.

    Re: I put my money where my mouth is

    I'm calling BS on a 25 year coating. After roughly 15 years outside in the northeast, clearcoat begins to fail. Also, anything that claims to be on the extreme durable side, I'd want to know that it's body shop safe and can be safely removed if the car needs painting due to an accident.

    I'll go so far to say, that a claim like that makes me less likely to buy the product.

    Write Jim Lafeber who is Dr Beasley himself. Thatís the black and white print and warranty he puts on the product. He lives in Chicago with snow and road salt etc. just like the Northeast and Canadian border where I live. I own a 15 year old Camry and 14 years of its life has been in my posession. Itís lived outside and I have maintained it. The paint looks as good now as it did the day I bought it only hand washing and applying sealants. NO COATING will last for any claimed amount of time if it is not maintained. Thatís hard truth regardless of manufacturer. If something IS CARED FOR and maintained, it will last through the test of time.

    Re: I put my money where my mouth is

    After watching Pan the Organizers interview with David Guiterez from 303 about graphene and durability it's all about averages. Case in point, their new graphene HAS lasted a year...in perfect conditions, even 18 months but as low as 9 months, so they go in the middle. He then said to reapply after 6 months, so half the time to "boost it up". All this said, even half is 12.5 yrs and at that point, based on other products, it could/should need a boosting of itself by itself...even when maintained with that booster mentioned.

    I've gotta tell you, I'd love to see a real world report of this product every 6 months...detailed and documented and keep it going past 5 yrs and see where we're atI put my money where my mouth isI put my money where my mouth isI put my money where my mouth is
