    If you want to use an AIO use carpro essence and followed that up with IGL primer. Speed and colly would not hold a candle to that combo. Both products are very easy to use to.

    Colly 845 is outdated.
    I'm not opposed to some sort of ceramic coating. I've been out of the detail scene for years, but I remember they used to be a real pain to apply. I know the newer stuff is a lot easier, I guess I am just a little overwhelmed by it all. Everyone has their own opinion. CarPro Essence isn't really a polish for paint correction?

    If I could use a polish I already have (which would save me some money) and then order something like CanCoat or IGL Primer, I would consider that. They are considerably more expensive and keep in mind I do need enough product to coat an entire airplane, which is probably at least twice the surface area of an SUV. That gets expensive very quickly.

    I actually have some McKee's Paint Coating I bought a few years back, but there is no way that tiny bottle is covering an entire airplane.

    IGL is a water based spray sealant, its easy to use. There are many others. Its a lot faster to use then colly 845. I think sonax pns is better then 845. Doesn't get more easy then sonax PNS, good stuff, i still have a tiny bit left lol

    Spend more time polishing then applying a layer of tricky to use colly for no gain unless its money.

    Could I polish with something like Megs M205 and then top it off with that spray sealant?

    Maybe I ought to go with orange and yellow pads instead of white. Tough to say until I lay eyes on the paint.
    I have boss yellow and orange for my g15. Yellow finished down find and orange cut through the deep stuff on my shadow black ford paint.


    Unless you need major correction I think orangecand yellow way to go.

    Re: Griots BOSS Pads - Orange vs. Yellow

    Will the plane be outside or housed in a hanger?

    That will help narrow down options.

    Yes.. you could but I still think products that are sun friendly would be ideal. I assuming you will be outdoor unless you are working in the hanger.

    3D Speed top with 303 Graphene coating will brighten the paint tremendously and gives you pretty good durability (up to 12 months) plus.... fairly easy application.
