    Re: Adams Spray Coating

    UPDATE: Just used it again after a few months. The spray nozzle was clogged. So my recommendation would be to purge it prior to storing it.

    I topped a coated vehicle with it to see how it acts/performs as a coating `topper`. Had no issues whatsoever. No streaking/etc. Will update on the performance/durability.

    A bummer that the nozzle was clogged, but a plus that there is enough SiO2 (or whatever) to harden and clog said nozzle. Car looks great too!

    Re: Adams Spray Coating

    I think Coating Lite fits the category very well. Quick detailer, wax, topper, sealant, coating lite, coating. Now you can use products any way you choose, such as a coating lite over a coating, but not a coating over a coating lite. In reality you could, but what would be the purpose? The topper category is a bit more complicated as you can use some over wax as well as some of the coating lites.

    How does this sound? Or did I miss something?

    Thanks rl. I keep wanting to replace this car, but it looks so darn good and still drives well, I just can`t bring myself to do it! LOL

    Yeah, the nozzle clogging isn`t necessarily a deal breaker, but just an added step to be sure not to have any issues down the road. (purging the nozzle/line before storage).


    "Coating lite" is a good category for these types of products. Kind of fits them to a T! And your description of usage is right on as well. (I would not coat over a coating lite or anything else for that matter)

    I like your categories. Each category obviously could breakdown further into subcategories, but I think you drew a nice line for keeping things straight forward.

    Forrest has said it will last 12+ months and as far as I know there are no spray coatings that last longer than 9 months. It’s going to be hard to live up to those claims. I would be happy with 6 real all weather/conditions months at his price.

    Agreed. Hard to believe it will outlast cancoat,moonlight which both seem to be solid coating lites

    CanCoat for me went 15 months so if I do decide to use Mothers then it would have to meet the high standard that CanCoat has set.

    Re: Adams Spray Coating

    If these coating lite products has around a year of longevity. It`s going to be very important that it has the shelf life that is very long too. Cause you get a lot of product in a coating lite bottle. And the shelf life of Sio2 products is not always very long as in up to 2-4 years. This is with the average Joe with 1-2 cars. But maybe the price of them still gets your bang for the buck with maybe 2 applications only. Then you maybe don`t wait till it`s fails on the paint. And reapply it around the 6 months mark to have it topped up.

    Very interesting time for sure this. And for the pro detailers to be able to offering a great coating lite products. A one step polishing and coating lite I think could be a money maker. And why not an AIO Sio2 polish and coating lite topped. Angelwax Enigma AIO and top it with either the Enigma Wax or Enigma QED and send a bottle with the customer with AW Enigma car soap maybe the Enigma AIO plus the Enigma Wax could get you around a year of longevity from it. With Enigma AIO and Enigma QED you would get around 6months longevity from it. Enigma QED and Enigma car soap would be something the customer could be useing by them self too. The drawback would be that they maybe don`t comes back to soon for a polishing LOL

    Like the coating lite to describe these products with over 6 months longevity. The step over the normal sealant longevity.

    This is something I have thought about also. The shelf life of high SiO2 products is not long after opening. I just tossed a bottle of product that cost $129. I should have moved it into smaller bottles where less air would be introduced. There is some conversation about the McKees V2 Coating “jelling” up after the first application. The Mothers product doesn’t concern me as much due to its low cost and that it could be used as frequently as you want. I spray some IGL Premier on my vehicle every couple of weeks even though I know I could get 6 months out of it. If the Mothers is a good product many of the products I now use will be obsolete, and that’s a good thing. I can’t wait to mix ECH2O and Mother’s to get a super QD.

    Hey, Amigo !
    In my experience with Coatings, the best, most reliable, easy to use, storage for them is the Syringe.. Optimum who started Coatings long ago, used them and I had some of their first products last many years before starting to dry.. With a syringe, you can visibly see how much air is in it and since its small, there is way less air if any in one, if you purge it all out and then cap the end.. Optimum used 60ml clear plastic syringes..
    Just a thought..
