    Oh yea 10cc`s was plenty. I think I may have applied it too thick which is why I had a lot of high spots, and with a different applicator I think I could`ve used less product. But I was running out of time so I did everything quickly. This detail was completed in 6 hours.

    Sure! I`ll take a video this weekend. It`s raining here now and it`s looking good!

    After a light shower I was finally able to witness beading/sheeting in the rain.



    The vertical panels basically stayed dry, it was cool to see. Next time I`ll take a video.



    By the way that`s PBL Glass Coating on the windshield. I don`t think I mentioned that in the review.

    Looks great but it will take two years to test durability. You can out Blackfire on the car and have an equally brilliant shine but only about six months of protection. Will we get two years durability out of Opti Gloss Coat is the real concern for me!

    That`s true. I`m trying to decide whether I should do a long term review without adding any additional protection after maintenance washes, or if I should wash and wax as I normally would. Hmmmmmm....

    You could always leave one area unmolested and do a long term test.

    So if down the line after applying this I want to wax it what would be the best course of action?

    Ray,

    Thank you for testing Gloss-Coat on your new car and taking the time to share your results. The Sable looks amazing.

    David,

    Thanks Dr. The pleasure was all mine.

    15 day update. ~300 miles and just about daily rain with extreme UV ratings. I haven`t washed it yet and I think the results speak for themselves.



    p.s. I double parked to detail the interior. Rayview coming soon...
