    McKee`s 37 Hi-Def Paint Sealant 8 month Longevity Update

    I always get questions via PM,Facebook,YouTube on the longevity of Hi-Def Paint Sealant and Hydro Blue. So here is a "Update"

    The Story



    In March 2017 I was repairing some paint transfer scuffs on my neighbors car, I seen the transfer and left my business card on the door. Sure enough they called, I set up an appointment to remove the transfer scuffs in my community.

    While I was working my other neighbor with a beautiful Black Jag came up to me and asked If I can get rid of "swirl marks" I explained to him that removing swirl marks is my specialty!

    He said after I was done removing the transfer to come over and look at his car, After I was all done I took a look at his car. I offered a 2-Step Paint Correction Process and a 1-Step Paint Correction process his eyes bulged from my prices. I did a "test spot" with tape to show him a 50/50 difference and explained to him the process and the time it takes to do a quality job. (You have to educate your customers on why you charge what you charge)

    After he seen the difference in the 50/50 He opted for the 1-Step with a Sealant package. The total time spent on this car was about 5 Hours. Afterwards the owner was blown away by the results, He brought by over 5 of his friends to look at the job I did. Afterwards he explained to me that he was sorry he doubted my pricing, And that he is so used to paying $60 in West Palm Beach to get his car "waxed" and He did not understand how thorough of a process detailing can actually be. He was a very nice guy and gave me a generous tip.

    I Used Fast Polish a Blue HDO Cutting Pad and then sealed it with one coat of Hi-Def Paint Sealant.


    Here is what It looked Like when I was all done!



    Since then my neighbor Vinny has driven from New Jersey back to Florida twice since the 8 Months.

    It was raining all day yesterday, And as I passed by his car on my way to the Trademark Garage, I stopped to take pics of the water beading.

















    That is 8 months going on 9.

    You might be wondering, How did he wash/maintain it since then.

    I educated Vinny in proper wash methods, He only washes with N914 as a rinseless and waterless wash. We live in a Condo Community so we do not hose access. Vinny Loves the fact that he can rinseless wash in our own community without worrying about the Automatic Car Wash scratching his black beauty.

    This Jaguar is not garage kept, It sits outside all day in the hot florida sun, And Hi-Def Paint Sealant is going on the 9 month mark.

    So YES! Hi-Def Paint Sealant is the real deal. I wouldn`t exactly call Vinny a "Car care" expert either.


    The Process:


    Here is what I did step-by-step. (Did this in my condo community no hose access)

    - Rinseless Washed with N914
    - Tire & Rubber Rejuvenator to clean Tires
    - N914 To Clean Wheels
    - One-Stepped with McKee`s 37 Fast Polish / With Blue Lake Country HDO Cutting Pad
    - Used N914 @ Panel Wipe Ratio (1:8) To remove polishing oils
    - Sealed with Hi-Def Paint Sealant (one coat) via machine

    Product List:


    Hi-Def Paint Sealant

    Fast Polish
    N914
    Blue HDO Cutting Pad
    Flex XFE 7-15
    Tire & Rubber Rejuvenator

    Did you verify that your friend did not use anything (wax, sealant, coating) in those eight months?
    Impressed so far...
