    Yeah, in the great scheme of things, it`s pretty inconsequential. More like shrugging the shoulders, looking up at the sky and asking the Universe "Really...you hadda wait until I was done to send that my way ???"

    Cleaned up the cars.

    Highlander-
    Complete interior performed with vacuum, steam, McKees interior cleaner and protected with Kenotek. TAC Refresh sprayed on all upholstery and ran the AC for a while to circulate.

    Exterior was cleaned with TAC Aqua Waterless. Tires dressed with TAC Tire Coat.

    S-
    Interior cleaned with McKees and protected with Gyeon Preserve.

    Exterior cleaned with a 2BW using TAC Mystic Bubble and coated with Gyeon Can Coat. Wheels cleaned with BDX and refreshed with Gyeon Wet Coat. Tires have TW, which is holding up.

    So I got the Foxbody today. It`s a fun ride. Paint correction is probably best it`s gonna get. I`ll get the car repainted down the road. But it`s a good 5-10 footer

    Spent 14 hrs, removing ceramic coating and recorrecting the paint, then coating it again with cquartz..... long story short, this was the 1st of a few cars I did. After doing 4 others, I knew I can get this one better!

    Menzerna 400 with white pads

    Coating was only a few months old. Horizontals had 3 coats of cquartz and verticals had 4 coats

    Thanks - gotta remove 3 layers of 2-month old 22ple HPC from my car and re-coat. Likely use Jescar Compound w/ white pad if the white pads worked for you, followed by Gyeon Primer or Scholls S40.

    Are you just `going on faith` that it removed the coating or did you verify in some fashion?

    I called carpro-us/ skys the limit, and was fortunate to get Corey on the phone. I told him that I wasn`t happy with the correcting on the Aston and wanted to see if I had options. The bottom line came to him saying I needed to remove, recorrect and recoat. When it came to talking about what to use, I mentioned I was thinking menzerna 400 with a few others and from the convo, I was comfortable moving forward. I only did 2/3 passes with no pressure. I realized that when the slickness of a wax feeling came back, I knew the coating was off. To me, Ceramic has a "heavy" slickness to it compared to the slickness of a standard cars paint once polished or waxed


    Used a little of everything
    Reflect is about 3000 so to me, it fell right into the line

    Washed my Tundra again today after 2-3 weeks with out a wash and once again amazed how easy it is to wash with CSL on it. Also beading is still excellent and very even from top to bottom on all panels, no signs of degradation on the lower body panels.
