Step 1: Prep., Panel Wipe, for GTechiq

Panel Wipe is the next step after the paint has been "perfected" and just before coating base coat application. 

If the paint surface holds any "oils", fingerprints, glazes, dust or debris, etc. the ultimate bond of the coating will be compromised.  Using a surface prep. before base coat application is the sure way to achieve the best possible coating/paint bond.  Some advocate alcohol as a prep wipe but for this kind of investment and it's promise I prefer to recommend the materials the Chemists who created the product recommend.  That's Panel Wipe.

Application: Spray on a microfiber towel and rub onto a cool surface to dissolve contaminants.  Gloves are recommended.  Finish wiping with a second dry towel. 

CAUTION:  Not suitable for PPF, Vinyl, Plastic or rubber.  See manufacturers Cautions.
