  • Hybrid Paint Coating

    First time using this product and I couldn't be happier. I'm really a wax and sealant guy and this is only the second time I've tried any coating type product.

    The first was 303 Graphene Nano Spray Coating and while that product did look good, the application/removal left a little to be desired, and the finished surface was not slick at all. In fact, I'd call it sticky or grabby. I didn't like that.

    This go-around, my customer requested a coating. After some discussion, together we decided to give the Meguiar's HPC a try. I think we made a great decision.

    First, I did all of the paint correction with a rotary and wool pad using Meguiar's 110 Compound followed by finishing with a Rupes Mille, a Rupes DA Polishing Pad (yellow), and Meguiar's 205 Polish. I then prepped the panels for the coating with DuPont (Axalta) 3949S Kwik Clean in lieu of the M122 provided. I did that only because of my familiarity with the DuPont product... I'm sure the M122 would do just as well.

    Then the coating application. The application was a breeze and the removal/leveling was even easier. And an added bonus... The surface slickness with the HPC was as good as it gets. Equal to, or even better, than any LSP I have ever used (waxes and sealants included). As for appearance, this job was a white truck, and while it looked really, really nice, I’ll hold off on my final appearance judgement until I try it on a black vehicle.

    I'll definitely be using this product again. In fact, I just ordered two more kits to have on hand.

    I highly recommend this product.

    Thank you for sharing. Wait until you experience the water beading & how easy the vehicle comes clean. I am not familiar with the DuPont Kwik Clean you use, but I would imagine it is much stronger, more of a true wax & grease remover/body shop style product, compared to M122 Surface Prep.

    Thanks again
