      Awesome results on my 7 year old/ 60k FX! I couldn’t be happier with the initial results! One big surprise is that it did an amazing job restoring the plastic trim. I’ve read that the coating was not designed for the trim, but I can’t believe the improvement!

        Sorry to see the "cut off". We are still having trouble with users using the apostrophe character (').

        To answer your question yes, on new cars, you can apply a wax, sealant, or coating. New Car paint is cured prior to being delivered. It's only aftermarket paint that needs 30-90 days, depending on what the painter/body shop recommends, to cure prior to applying wax or other form of protection.

        Also keep in mind, new cars go on quite a journey most of the time from the OEM to Dealer, and often sit outside without being washed for weeks, among all sorts of other conditions so be sure to do a proper evaluation like you would on any other vehicle & inspect for above surface contaminants & any below surface defects you may want to address.

          Awesome to hear! If you would like remember you are more than welcome to start a new thread & post up your thoughts w/ pictures, etc. You could even do a video of the water beading & upload it to YouTube as unlisted & post it up as well! Let me know if you have any questions, no worries either way.

            In case you're not aware, dryer sheets work wonders in removing bugs. Just wet one in your wash or rinse bucket and bugs will wipe away easily, especially if you're keeping after them regularly. Just wash/rinse as normal once the bugs are gone. You might need to use a couple of sheets if it's plastered.

              Re: Meguiar's Hybrid Paint Coating

              I took the plunge! Bought two kits off of Amazon (currently marked down 15% to about $50).

              I'm excited to try it out, especially since it looks like we're finally emerging from Missouri's icy winter. I'll be coating a F-150 Crew Cab and Audi TT that are coated with Meguiar's Ultimate Liquid Wax (previous formula) about every other month. Both have PPF that I plan on using the HPC on top of. Both are daily driven, but the TT only sees 3-4k miles a year and is garaged. The F-150 is a daily driver that is parked outside and averages 15k miles or more per year. I plan to maintain with Gold Class Car Wash and let the coating do the rest of the work.

              I sincerely appreciate all the time Meguiar's has spent so far here answering questions and the level of detail provided on YouTube in the Shop Talk videos.

                Is it fine to use M135 with Hybrid Paint Coating? I still have half a gallon of it lying around and would hate for it to not be compatible.

                  You can however the water beading it is going to provide will be a step down in performance from the Hybrid Paint Coating. Ideally you would maintain with a similar technology, like our Hybrid Ceramic Detailer or M799 PRO Hybrid Ceramic Bead Booster.

                      Re: Meguiar's Hybrid Paint Coating

                      Looking at this product I am so interested, but a few questions.

                      I bought a car that is Ceramic coated. The coating has a "hardness" rating, which is what keeps the coating from getting swirl marks. Does this product have a hardness rating after full cure?

                      Another aspect of ceramic, is the glossy when dry (wet look) the colors are deeper and more lustrous, on top of the beading, do you offer ant such color enrichment?

                          The member stated he was considering using a space heater in his garage. I stated be careful with heat; I was referring to his comment on the use of space heaters, subsequently advising member to read the entire product labels, which has more information around proper use. I will edit my response to be more specific.

                          From what you described your application sounds proper. Preparation, like the use of clay, compound/polish if needed, followed by the included M122 Surface Prep Spray, & two coats of Hybrid Paint Coating an hour apart from each other, with the application itself applied above 60F, not exposing to water for 12-24 hours & ideally 7 days for the full cure.

                          Regarding applying on a hot day, as long as the panels are not in direct sunlight & you are working in the shade, we do not anticipate any issue, except for maybe a little harder wipe off.

                          No special recommendations around humidity for this product.

                          As mentioned on the label, our up to 1+ year paint protection is based on water contact angle lab testing & predictive modeling. It's difficult to get into more specifics without potentially sharing too much, but essentially driving around, washing weekly, and testing certain characteristics, repeat. It has also shown to perform very well in a variety of environments. Regarding UV, in our testing it performs great. A couple of the top variables which can really affect the long term durability of a coating is where the vehicle is being parked & how often it is washed. Try to avoid parking in a spot where it may potentially get constantly abused, for example, next to sprinklers or under trees if it is going to rain. Regarding washing, try to wash weekly. The longer environmental contaminants sit on top the paint surface, the more likely they are going to affect your paint protection, with any product that is being used.

                          Even if maintaining with our Hybrid Ceramic Detailer, Hybrid Ceramic Spray Wax, or Hybrid Ceramic Wash & Wax, we recommend re-applying Hybrid Paint Coating around once a year for optimum performance. With that said, it can last longer if the vehicle is really kept up well, and additionally, extreme weather or situations, like salt from roads, harsh chemicals, or lack of washing, it may not last as long as well.
                          So far so good. When it pours rain (and I mean really pours) you can really see the difference on beading of the water on my car vs other cars in the parking lot. Often what makes the car look dirty ends up getting blown off with the beads. Still wash the car once a week at least but it looks cleaner longer which is hard with a black car. It looks like I'm going to get a year out of this easily.

                            I recently took advantage of the sale by autozone for this product after eyeing it for a while.

                            I first picked one up on sale at a Pep Boys that was closing and got it for $38. Then the autozone deal came up and i ended up picking 3 more kits.

                            I would agree that it makes the car that much easier to just rinse off with a pressure washer. the water just seemingly looks allergic to the paint, its not so much that it beads a lot, but it just repels the water. even dew on the hood and roof all but disappear with no traces after a quick drive.

                              Are there any news when you will export this product to Europe? Can’t find anywhere here from a decent seller. Nothing on eBay, Amazon, Meguairs UK etc. or I’m looking in the wrong places?

                                3 questions on this product
                                - My car was painted 3 months ago and I just did a full prep with UC/UP , my next step was going to be either M305 or M26 should I skip and go straight to the coating ?
                                - It will be 2 weeks before it's shipped to me any additional prep that will be needed on my car since it will be almost 3weeks since polish
                                - How is the shine/Depth compared to M26/M305 ?

                                Thanks
