Kamikaze Miyabi coating

I guess the kids set a box on my hood, of course when they picked it up they drug it a bit marring the finish. I should have taken a pic, but set out to correct it as soon as I saw it and did not. I poilshed off the coating with Blackfire SRC finishing polish.

Then coated it with my favorite coating. Very easy to use. These pics are minutes after coating and will look even better tomorrow.

You going for the coating? Its real easy to use. If your paint is in decent shape I would just polish it and do the coating. The Camaro paint responds very well to Menzerna FG400 to remove any major swirls, and then a finishing polish. If the swirls are light a finishing polish works well by itself. I will try the artificial clear on the kids sacrificial car before I can say I would try it on my car. Car pro essence is a similar product that I will do a side by side against the artificial clear.

Im really impressed with the Kamikaze coatings, really easy to use with great results.

Yes I'm going to order it and apply it to my new jeep. My Camaro is in storage for the winter but will strip it and apply it in spring. I'm anxious to hear how the artificial clear works out for you. If it's promising I would use it on my black jeep then the miyabi coat. The overcoat product looks great too. It says it will fill swirls and add a layer of protection to maintain the miyabi coat. The suite of products aren't cheap but I'm not afraid to pay when it saves time and lasts.

I can give feedback on the overcoat. It is designed as a topper for coatings but can be used over anything. It is expensive but you hardly need any product. A small bottle will take care of 8 to 10 cars. I have used it on different brands of coatings and it works equally well on all of them. Its hydrophobic qualities are fantastic. I should have a chance to use the artificial clear in the next couple of weeks. I will let you knkw how it works.
