    Tempting!

    Is this going to be a huge prep job before applying this? I've applied CG jetseal a week after i bought it, and every couple weeks hose it down with Merlin's Magic Elixir.
    Can i get away with using carpro eraser, or should i do the clay bar route?

    When doing a coating, I would say it does require a good amount of prep. Deconning, both Chemical and mechanical, correcting, and pre application prep.

    I would say if you are happy with your current results, stick with it...:thumbsup:

    Why do you do this to me Steve?!?!?!
    I should get a coating, but of course I'd have to get a polish first to get swirls out after deconning. And maybe a buffer to use for that ...... ahhhhhh you kill me lol

    If you did I'd schedule a day to come visit and pay you to help me out with a coating

    Just curious ... how many ml's does it take to coat a tundra? Those bottles seem so small

    I would say, to be safe, a 50 ml. That includes door jambs and other areas....

    Thanks! That's much less than I though. Very cool how little it takes to coat our trucks

    I took advantage of the sale. The free suede cloths they sent are kind of a joke though, they're tiny.

    Those suedes are for applying the coating. You wrap those around the block...

    What block? Maybe if I had the block they would make more sense lol. I didn't get an actual coating just the hydro2 foam for my foam cannon.

    Aaahhhhhhh. Not sure why they would send those if you didn’t order a coating.... Had you ordered a coating, the block and the clothes would have been included....
