Would they buy this item again? No
I should have paid a little more attention to the other reviews but as a detailing enthusiast, always willing to try new products. After having used so many products throughout the last 3-4 years, i have to say that this will be the first time i felt tremendously dissapointed. As many describe, this has been the first product i've used that has been soooo difficult to apply/remove...i almost feel like i have to polish the car just to remove the smearing it left behind...to give it credit, felt noticably slicker then other products I have used....man...was really looking forward to this product delivering but unfortunately will be throwing it out...

What a pain in the butt. I used as a topper for 2 coats of 22PLE HPC on a 170 mile Dodge Demon, that I spent 3 days polishing and jeweling (dealer really F'ed it up!). Added no perceptible difference to the appearance. In fact it may have even lost some depth, from just the HPC coating alone. This product streaked so bad, no matter how long I let dwell, or amount of product I used. I needed to almost go over the entire car again, removing almost immediately, to get the streaks gone. It also had a weird oil like smearing left behind, no matter how much I wiped, even their "damp microfiber" recommendation did not remove. The only thing that seemed to remove the smearing was a ceramic-based quick detailer, that I have a feeling removed Finitura completely. It is unfortunate that I feel the need to warn everyone else, as I love every other 22PLE product that I have used.

I just tried this for the first time on a 2017 Porsche 911 which was coated last year. I have used other 22ple products and have been very happy with them. I applied this following the instructions and used different drying times. Each time when I went to remove the thin layer I applied, it was like taking off glue. It left the paint dull and lifeless. Had to buff out the sections I used this product on. I would not recommend this to anyone. I either got a bad batch of this product but not something I would recommend.

Applied a coat in a garage, at about 55 degrees. Being such a low temperature-
I had about a 15 minute set time before removal. Vehicle is a Black Silverado. I am looking for that bulletproof combo that will help prevent water spots, and other types of etching. I have previous coats of Optimum Gloss coat' topped with EXOv3. Finitura increased the gloss level considerably. Application and removal are very similar to a sealant.

Too bad I cannot attach photos of my client's Corsa Red Ferrari 458 Spyder, recently purchased R8 V10 PLUS...BOTH the smoothness and galactic reflections are truly in another galaxy!

PS: It takes a bit more effort to remove than Reload, but I've found that it's about the quality of the microFiber towel that's used which I've mastered!

Well, as typical with 22ple, bizarrely easy application, slick as snot and pretty glossy considering the uncorrected paint it was used on.

Just a quick impression, the product just arrived at work in the mail.

Took one of the vans sitting in the warehouse, PB Spray & Wiped hood, PB Spray & Wipe w/ Nanoskin Fine clay mitt, panel prep with Gtechniq panel wipe.

Van is a 2006 E250 w/ 161K miles on it. Last January I had compounded/polished the hood and waxed with Collinite 915. About 20k hard miles this pool season since it was compounded and waxed.

Couldn`t do any real work on hood as half the power to our building is down after the storm so no power for compounding/polishing but gave Finitura a try anyway.

Temperature is about 60 degrees, used Gyeon applicator block with microsuede applicator cloth.

A typical line or 2 down the applicator covered about 25% of the hood, up and down, then back and forth. Finitura hazed almost immediately and is a very, very thin product in terms of consistency. Very easy to tell where it`s been applied although I likely over applied as that is generally `what I do` despite my best efforts to do otherwise. Towards end of each section, when more product likely needed to be applied to applicator the applied sections got somewhat sticky when going back over them. Once the whole panel was done, though, it was strangely easy to go back over the whole hood one more time with up/down, side to side motions to even it all out. A little does indeed go a long way and I suspect the bottle will last quite a long time.

Buffed off using short pile towel like the DI Polish Removal Edgeless Towel, followed by a final buff with 420 gsm towel. Buffed the first 1/3 of the hood at 7 minutes, the second 1/3 at 15 minutes and the final 1/3 right at 20 minutes. All came off easily with no streaks, leaving a slick and glossy finish, especially considering the underlying surfaces lack of compound/polish. It was a little stickier at the 20 minute mark, and likely 10-15 minutes woulda been the sweet spot at 60 degrees and the 73% humidity the Weather Channel says it is right now. In any event, a very forgiving product at this temperature and humidity. Initial impressions are that it`s pretty neat stuff, albeit somewhat pricey, but easy to use, nice results. Will have to watch longevity and in a few weeks, I`ll run a soft cotton towel across a section of the hood to see if it marks it, if that doesn`t affect it I`ll try a little less soft towel and see what happens. They claim 500% increase in scratch resistance so we`ll see.

It has to be one of the slickest finishes I've ever run across, be it wax, sealant, coating or SiO2/Fluorine based coating booster. The application characteristics are pretty much sealant-like, it's that easy to use. I'm not even sure whether to top it with 22ple VS1 Final Coat for fear of losing some gloss/slickness.
