    The right prep product for Profi

    I am exploring putting the Profi ceramic coating on my black 2010 Toyota Avalon. I understand that prep is critical and I want to understand if I can use my existing product of Paintwork Polish Enhancer instead of Wolfgang Perfekt Finish Paint Prep. They seem like they are the same, but I need advice before I spend the money on the ceramic coating. Thank you.

    Never used that product but pick up a panel wipe such as CarPro Eraser, Optimum Panel Prep and you will be good after the polishing step.

    •Paintwork Polish Enhancer, among other
    not-friendly-to-Coatings attributes, contains
    ‘fillers’; which makes it OK to use before
    applying Waxes/Sealants—not Coatings.

    •With that in mind:
    -I’ll bet a Dollar to a donut-hole that
    they are not the same formulation.

    •As such:
    -I’d go with Wolfgang’s recommendation.

    TO WIT:

    ”Prepare the surface for coating with
    Wolfgang Perfekt Finish Paint Prep…”

    I would polish the paint surface first and then use the Wolfgang Perfekt Finish Paint Prep to prep the panel before applying the PROFI Coating.

    Wow. Thank you. As I reread the Polish Enhancer, you are correct. Thank you very much.
