    Re: Meguiar's Hybrid Ceramic Paint Prep

    Just another thought about this paint prep, I like the look of it, but part of me is sceptical about removing swirls and light scratches as you recommend.. by hand. Thats a very hard job for any cutter. Does that mean it has a lot of fillers or can it genuinely remove swirls by hand, a lot of work, don't understand why a DA isn't the preferred method? But I am excited by the product, I am a great believer in sticking to one family of products, I think synergy is a big part of products working at their best. So this would be on paper great to start a full paint correction AIO through to LSP with more Megs hybrid ceramics. Why no DA? Thanks, Phil, Kia Kaha.

    Great comments & questions, this is not necessarily the best start to a full on paint correction with a dual action polisher - in short we would recommend looking to our Ultimate, Detailer, or Mirror Glaze Lines for that situation for various reasons. In regards to why Hand application is the primary design driver for Hybrid Ceramic Paint Prep -the vast majority of all car care customers/users are not using a machine. With this in mind, we tuned it to perform great for hand application, and yes remove a good amount of swirls & fine scratches, and in addition provide some major added gloss, especially noticeable on a dark color. If the paint has heavy swirls or scratches & you are looking to make the paint absolutely perfect by hand or with your D/A Polisher, again some of our other products, i.e. Ultimate Compound/Ultimate Polish would be a more suitable way to go. There are generally not major/any disadvantages to using different line(s) of product for the preparation work on the paint.

    Thank you so much for the great informative and quick reply. I understand you're thinking now. Just one more brief question... When will owe see it over here in the UK? Ki Kaha. Phil.

    Re: Meguiar's Hybrid Ceramic Paint Prep

    This will make wash plus redundant which is a good thing for me. I love synergy of products and stripping with say Garage Therapy Decon then correcting with this... only a few light swirls and marring seems the perfect set up for applying/layering the rest of the Megs ceramics as a bare bones up product all the way to LSP. Any thoughts on layering and longevity? Will pre wax prep add to longevity alone? and is there a curing time? Before applying HCLW. and or HCW? Very excited by this product. Megs may have "done" it again! Although I still have doubts about any amount of correction by hand only. I'm sure it will all come out in the wash (pun intended).... now get cracking on sending it to the UK!
