That looks like some very cool stuff. Is it alright to use over a freshly waxed surface?

BillR,
Did you ever use Zanio on the boat? I am curious how the durability of Zanio compares to this new stuff you tried?

Also, regarding applying over fresh wax, I would be surpised if the manufacture recommends that. Usually they want the surface free of any products. This allows their product to grip the surface better. Kind a like painting, paint doesn't stick too good to wax. Same concept with a polymer.

Wow, that is a serious shine. Looks like some high-tech protectant.

rv,

You're right. They reccomend first their primer, then the base coat and finally a top coat.

Bill, did use 2 of the 2.75oz bottles or the 6.75oz bottles? I assume since your link takes you to the 2.75oz bottle that's the one you used, but both seem little to me.

Who wants to be the first to try the Pro... "can be applied by beginners, however, to minimize the risk and maximize the result of crystal coating we recommend reviewing the instructional video" What risk needs to be minimized?
