Both. Neither. Just painted. Plastidipped.

I'll add my thanks too, these threads are great & extremely helpful! I have 2 questions.

1) Iron-x. I've seen conflicting comments that it's safe for brake calipers, rotors, and balance weights. Do you mask as best you can or has the product changed where it initially wasn't safe for all surfaces but now is? What about ppf? The CarPro site says it's safe for clear-bras, has anyone tried it? I don't think I need to decontaminate the film but am wondering if I need to be careful about overspray.

2) Can I seal over glaze/wax blends? Is the rule of thumb that you can wax over sealant but not vice-versa just for "pure" products? What happens if you do seal over wax, does it just not bond, does it haze, something else?

I have never had an issue with it on any of the things you mention above. This is with dozens of cars. One thing you want to not use it on is plastic chrome hubs. Can discolor those.

2) Can I seal over glaze/wax blends? Is the rule of thumb that you can wax over sealant but not vice-versa just for "pure" products? What happens if you do seal over wax, does it just not bond, does it haze, something else?

You can seal over glaze. Probably wouldn't do it after anything with wax. You just won't get the durability most likely. You could run into some hazing or sweating as well. Just better off not to push it.

I also hear that Iron-X can damage anything with a zinc-coating, which comprises a lot of aftermarket rotors.

So weird. Thanks for the update.

I haven't ever run into this problem but it clearly does exist.

Matt - another great thread and precisely what I needed - a little primer go understand the process and the other thread has the products. Very nice work and thanks! I hadn't found this one until you pointed it out.

Make sure you instruct the dealer to NOT wash your car... trust me!!

All - beginning to figure out the detailing regimine thanks to the input I've gotten.

Question: Should I use claybars, IronX, and the rest of the products required for detailing on my decals, or do they require special handling? Don't want to make a mistake with them.
