Default This is what I'm talking about

Mirrors, bumpers, wheel flares, door handle, door flares. See what I mean?

Because 72/9=8

Whether it actually performs that way of course is another matter. I ordered some of the quick. I plan on giving it a try on the boat and my Wife's black Lexus. I guess I'll know soon enough.

If this stuff works as good as you describe in your first post how could there possible be a significant difference with additional coats?
Secondly, if this stuff truely builds up coat after coat, then unlike wax it has no solvents in it that remove the previous layer as apply a new one. I think we should know how to get the stuff off if needed.

Good point Mr. Demeanor .
what if this stuff acts like clearcoat paint?
Ouch

Still a little skeptical. 4.2 hours of boating a day 365 days a year, is a lot of time and gas money. 5600rpm's, I wonder what power.

I would like for the claims to be true, it would be a nice product to use rather than constantly waxing.

Jim replied to my email, he is going to send out a Pro Kit and a sample of the regular Crystal Guard for me to test.

I also gave him a list of questions, which I'll post as soon as he replies to them.

I will keep everyone posted as to the results of of the test.

My truck has those composite type wheel flares, some composite type bumper over the chrome and some composite type door flares. All this stuff has NO paint, it is the black looking composite. What do you do in regards to this stuff?

Tako & Diamond.....Will the CG damage composite type plastic or can it be applied to that also? Wouldjn't it be hard to keep this CG away from this stuff since it is a liquid and not a paste if it should come into contact with the composite type plastic? Know what I mean?

Thanks,
Mike
Can somebody answer this for me?

My car has plastic bumpers, but they are painted. There is a section at the bottom of the windshield that is unpainted plastic. I didn't specifically apply CG to it, but I know that CG got on it. I went and looked at it before I made this post, it looks fine. Nothing special or detrimental about it.

If you watch the Pro demo, you'll see that it won't harm the plastic.
