    2 coats pretty much fully cured. I will check the directions again but i think I can put a topper on in 2-3 days. I will use reload as I do not have the DPC SiO2 spray sealant.

    A little pollen coated but great gloss

    How much for this coating and where did you order from? Doing a coating before winter. Have always used optimum gloss coat. Might try something different. Keep us posted on your thoughts.

    You get free shipping over $50 I think. I ordered some MF towels to get the free shipping, I got some gray 500gsm towels that I'm not a fan of. Not sure if his other towels are any good, but the ones I got arent very good.

    Thanks pudge for the info on this coating. Saw a video on it might be sold. Really adds lots of gloss. Interesting product.

    Is this the same DPC from youtube? He is usually pretty spot on with his advice.

    Yeah same guy. But now that he has his own product line he seems to be selling out a little. Obviously he will push his own stuff. The quality is yet to be seen but he sure is cashing in on his YouTube fame, like so many others have

    Yeah, unfortunately it does seem to be the trend. Most of these guys were much more entertaining and informative before they got big.

    Case in point - here is a good podcast from a year so ago. Both Scott and Jimbo’s quality have declined heavily since then. (Jimbo more so)

    I lost respect for him when bashed ONR. Just cause he doesn’t like something it’s no good. Love onr and it’s better than a mitt wash imo. Fetish detail and ammo nyc are much more knowledgeable hands down imo.

    It's been about 48 hrs since I applied Shield. It rained today while I was at work so I was worried it could mess up the curing, I just checked the website and it says wait 24 hours before getting water on it. So I should be in the clear. As far as performance goes, the water beading is pretty good as you can see, being a vertical surface I can't speak for how well water sheets off and all I have done is the tailgate. Picure is in the parking lot at work at 10pm so other than a couple street lights, its dark, check out that reflection.

    A coating that I just found last night looks amazing. QP-ON 2.0. Easy and can be used on everything. Trim,paint,glass and even interior panels. Going this route. Will post a review come fall time. Need a coating before winter. Apex detail has a video on this coating. Blown away by it imo. You mix it 20-1. Bottle would last for many vehicles. Not cheap up front but most coatings you are lucky to get a truck done. Economical actually with this coating I speak of.

    Finally was able to work with it a bit today. Gave it a wipe down with ech20 and then reload. Its finally nice and slick like I prefer. On it's own it has great gloss and water beading looked good, but definitely lacked that slick feeling. It now looks great and feels great. I hope to get to the rest of the truck soon, when done it'll be topped with reload or maybe the shine supply sio2 sealant. From there itll get regular washes and occasional wipe downs with beadmaker.

    Haven’t tied that one. I’ve used Punch It some. It’s really different. Kind of hard to explain, but does a great job. Almost feels like a hard shell over the paint.

    I have been reading their website for about 40 minutes now. So much stuff I wanna try but don't need or already have an equivalent or similar product. I know you understand that feeling. I will try a few things. Every time I drop another $50 I think wtf am I doing? I only have about 7 months of detailing weather,1 car ,and no time. Oh well I guess I could be blowing money on worse things

    I know that feeling. It was hard for me to recommend a lot of their products because I know you don’t need a lot of it.

    Really awesome reflection :thumbsup:

    Other vehicles might think twice about following too close at night; their headlights might reflect back at them a bit much. :)

    I did some more work with shield today. I buffed out my hood, front end, and passenger side of my truck with carpro clear cut using some MF cuttiing pads, then used a black finishing pad with carpro essence. The results are very good with those two products. I was able to remove almost all the small scratches and all of the swirl marks. After I got that done I applied DPC shield to those areas. It's very easy to wipe on, level, and buff off. Great shine and gloss. I will apply a second coat all the way around asap. Drivers size needs to be buffed and polished still. A little at a time is all I can do

    The coating definitely forms a hard layer on the paint. I found a few spots where some compound dust blew onto the paint and its encapsulated in the DPC shield.
