Hey All,

I'm an ER doc in Birmingham and I just drove my new cyber gray Stingray 2LT w/ Kalahari interior from Ohio home to Alabama a few weeks ago. What an amazing few days that was. It's a dream come true. I've never been a Corvette guy, as such, but I'm enamored of this incredibly beautiful thing. It's in a detail shop right now letting its new ceramic coating cure for a few days and I miss it horribly! I think it will look good though. Thanks for all the info on the forums everyone.

Congratulations on the Stingray. It will grow on you more and more with time. I've had mine about 3 months and I'm still loving it.

Welcome Doc! What is: "Its new ceramic coating" ?
My guess Chip is he is referring to a CQuartz Finest nanotech ceramic paint coating treatment like I got on RedHot.

There are several now, it's all what the detailer chooses to sell......DP is gaining popularity....some are ceramic, some are silica, some are polymer, which is best is being fought out on the detailing forums right now....LOL

So what are the primary differences between them Glen? Would someone be able to see a difference in the finished surface if they were compared? Which gives, or is claimed to give the best protection, shine, and durability?

all subject to great debate if you search the web....like ford vs chevy.....I'm convinced that no one has OVERWHELMINGLY better chemists than the next major player....opti coat easier to put on, cquartz better gloss, blah blah it goes reported on the detailing sites ad nauseum....

but brace yourself, I expect a detailer to come on here soon and explain whey his is so good, and he may be right, it's the way things are....I think a good installer that puts any coating on right is getting great results , they look diff than wax, for sure...they really work well for non detail people for a couple years, that just want to wash and go....

My guy is using 22PLE. He seems to think it's the best quality, gloss, protection. He seems to know his stuff, but, you know, it's his pitch too. His prior examples looked awfully good. Expensive though. Hope it's worth it. Getting it back tomorrow. I'll let you know. Maybe pics.

Please bring it to the Birmingham indoor Corvette show next year. The Mid Alabama Corvette Club has the details. Its one of the best shows in the SE. Good luck with the car. We have always been Corvette buffs and the new one is the best. cutnout aka Charlie
