Never heard of it Chris I can ask about it and let you know. I am going to go with Wolfs Chemicals Body Wrap or the Aquartz combo. I used Cquartz and it was a large disappointment. I also have applied Opti-Coat V2 and I had some issues that I was able to fix (due to the extreme heat hear) but its still a hell of alot better than Cquartz. But this time I am going to try Bodywrap or Aquartz. Most likely Bodywrap and save Aquartz for when I get the cobra.

Nano coatings are for those who want to have some scratch resistant properties, prevent water spot etching, live in extreme climates, and who want to basically keep up the vehicle looking great almost all the time. The only real maintenance is proper washing and a claying/ decontamination here and there. If you want to amp up the gloss a bit just use a high quality quick detailer on it. Plus they do not have to worry about applying protection every month or few months. I like this it makes keeping it up alot easier, I will be getting Wolfs Chemicals BodyWrap soon. Plus I will be locking in a near perfect finish after my ride has been corrected. I enjoy the correction stage and all, and also enjoy applying protection (just applied 2 coats of Menzerna Powerock yesterday). But I also enjoy just having to keep my ride up by washing it weekly and it looking good. Plus my gt is black so its a pita to keep up especially here in the desert.

Exactly, I'll be doing my fiance's new car with it once she gets it. I'm not interested in trying to spend the time I do on my car on hers.

Looks interesting, might have to get some of this.

Edit: Decided to place an order. I'll post my thoughts once I get it and try it out.

AWESOME please keep us posted...

Also has anyone ever topped a ceramic coating with a LSP after the curing and such? I mean it seems to me that the ceramic coating makes a great base...Why not build off it?

Cool

Chris,

Thank you for your invitation to field a few questions on your forum.

First, many questions can be answered in the System X FAQ Section. As for a few questions / comments on this thread :

Vince: I would love to get it...but I really like trying new waxes every month

System X has great solvent resistant properties, making it top-up compatible. This means waxing or sealing right over the coating won't hurt System X. In fact, I have a System X base with an Infinite Gloss topper on my Jeep and find it makes the paint look even deeper and glossier. So go ahead... wax right over it every month!

Danny Boy: ...for those who want to have some scratch resistant properties, prevent water spot etching, live in extreme climates, and who want to basically keep up the vehicle looking great almost all the time...to amp up the gloss a bit just use a high quality quick detailer on it..

Good description of our customer base Danny! As for the quick detailer, many of our customers like to use a QD from time to time. System X initially has a slick feeling almost similar to a freshly sealed car, but to keep that silky feel long term a QD is a good idea.

Wabasha Cobra: Decided to place an order. I'll post my thoughts once I get it and try it out.

Thank you for your order, if you have any questions before/during application give us a call at 860 375 0211 or shoot an email to support @element119.com

sikedsyko: If someone wants to do some correction on my car I'll gladly order this and apply it

We have a lot of people who apply System X over their paintwork before correction to add protection and stop any further damage to paint quite often. While you want to preserve your paintwork in pristine condition, paint correction involves buffing anyway.
System X is removed by compounding the same way your paint is corrected. This means if you System X your car today and in 6 months do the paint correction you will just be buffing a little longer. Just don't forget to re-seal after the correction.


Again, thanks for the invite, and feel free to throw any more questions this way!

Awesome...I think the wifes Expi will be getting a coat of this after I get the time to do a correction on it...

So 1 order is typically enough to handle say a 22ft SUV? LOL

What is the shelf life on this stuff as long as it's not opened?

Wink

Nasty Stang:

The shelf life of System X is 2 years, unopened.

An opened bottle of System X depends on how long the cap was left off. There are a blend of solvents in the formulation, each of which has a different evaporation rate. This was done to help ease application. So if the cap is left off too long the solvents that evaporate quicker will dissipate and the formulation will be be altered. This is why we suggest using all of the product in one use. We do however have clients that purchase the larger bottle and use it over the coarse of a couple weeks by keeping it capped as much as possible during application. So we recommend using as much of the product at once as you can, but know of people who stretch it our a bit.

Gotcha. I'm going to be purchasing a bottle to do my fiance's new car once she gets it but was thinking about ordering another bottle or two but wanted to make sure they would last some time. Thanks for the quick reply.
