Great review Chris, thanks for posting. Auto Geek must not be too happy with this thread as they are trying to push CQuartz. GTechniq is miles ahead of Optimum and Car Pro with their polish (P1), C1 and C2 coating, C4 best trim protectent on the market today, C5 best wheel sealant on the market, G1 and G3 best glass protectent, L1 for leather and I1 for fabric. They have the whole car care line covered. Waiting for the C3 (spray carnuba). BTW I see that you have a lot of GTechinq products.

Yes,all the GTechniq products have extremely impressed me.When will the C3 be available?Sounds like I could use the C3 as a topper/maintenance for the C1.
Here is what Rob quoted me:
"The C1 is fully hardened (Cured) after 12hrs,no matter what the temp.(Rob:GTechniq)
He said in the Summer,3hrs should be all that is needed for full cure."
THAT'S IMPRESSIVE!

BTW Ron,on your last comment -

Hope to be getting C3 in shortly. Was thinking the same thing as far as a topper for C1. Of course you can always dilute C2 and use that as a QD. Good to know about the cure time for C1, thanks.

I have not yet tried the C2.Is there a advantage of using C2 over C1 (besides application)?

If you dilute C2 at 5%, you can use it as a booster (QD) for C1 or C2.

Excuuuuuuuuuse me lol. American Muscle , huh. Nice ride for sure. Business must really be good. I'm not a huge fan of some American cars as I'm more of a import junkie but that is a real nice ride. What are you using on those rims?

I've got to imagine that your car is supercharged. Maybe some spray in there.
