    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.

    303 Graphene Nano Spray Coating
    It will be hangared and all the work will be done in a hangar. Heck if I can do 3D Speed and top with that Graphene spray that sounds like a good way to go. Or any spray sealant for that matter that will work with Speed. Especially since I already purchased some 3D Speed!

    I just stated that I could do Megs M205 and top it off with the spray you recommended. I have Menzerna 3500 as well, although that may or may not be aggressive enough

    Been using it on over a dozen vehicles since it came out. For the cost and ease of application...it is hard to beat. Even if durability is half of what they claimed (12 months) ... it is on par with majority of the sealant on the market.

    Saw a few of the vehicles that I had applied 303 Graphene. The maintenance wash was super easy. Water behavior was pretty similar to a traditional SI02 coating. A rinse with a power washer did a quick work on getting all the dirt off before the contact wash.

    CC268---

    I think you already have a solid plan.

    Orange pads
    Speed

    With that you'll be good for 3 months and if hangared, will get couple more months before speed wears off.

    After 3 or 4 months, you can either machine down some sealant or spray on some sealant, wax or even a ceramic spray.

    Don't need to rush the second step---you got some wiggle room there to decide what you want as your LSP.

    The plane will fly the same with or without the LSP! Smile.
