Had a fun job the past couple nights on this awesome 670 rwhp Camaro SS. Originally it was going to be in the world of wheels but he got notification that he couldn`t attend due to the car already attending the past few years in a row. Regardless he wanted it looking right for the upcoming show season. He chose to go with Gtechniq Crystal Serum Light and Exo V3.

Prep

Fine nanoskin towel and Mckees N914 for lube

Finishing polish

Chrome wheels/under hood accents- Mothers All Chrome

Tires dressed with Mckees 37 Gloss Tire Gel

Nice work as always, and damn, what a beast!

Also what is the ceramic coating?

Thanks Alex. It replaces the traditional wax or sealant with a much more durable layer of protection. Along with extreme gloss it provides hydrophobic properties and ease of maintenance.

What sets GTechniq Crystal Serum Light apart from other coatings, is the ultra-durable, ultra-high gloss produced when applied to your paint. GTechniq Crystal Serum Light leaves your paint slick and extremely easy to clean in the future. The 9h optically clear, ceramic layer formed by GTechniq Crystal Serum Light prevents bonded contaminants from getting a hold in your paint. Tree sap, tar, water spots, and other paint contaminants will be a breeze to remove.

GTechniq Crystal Serum Light is chemically set-up to withstand the long haul. Unlike traditional wax and paint sealants, and even some other paint coatings, GTechniq Crystal Serum Light resists much higher and much lower temperatures. Keep your coating (and ultimately, your paint!) protected in temperatures ranging from -40 degrees to over 200 degrees Fahrenheit!


Depending on budget I do a single layer of Gtechniq Crystal Serum Light or I do 2 coats. One with Gtechniq Crystal Serum Light and a second with Gtechniq Exo V3. The crystal Serum Light adds hardness and chemical resistance while Exo V3 adds great
