I apply it with a clean mf cloth and then wipe residue with another clean mf cloth. I’ve not had any high spots with it. It’s good to use on all surfaces i believe. It will be ok to wash the car this weekend. I apply Cure the following day once Can Coat has had a chance to cure to stop water spotting.

not sure TBH , maybe I used too much product on the MF that i used to apply it with but I was only doing small areas at a time and then buffing with seocnd clean MF. Found it really hard to work with and very grabby on the paint. Was like trying to remove super glue. It was a crisp dry day at the time Max 12 degrees so maybe it was a temp issue. I was like the can coat was sticking to the surface right away within seconds of application.

only noticeable on bonnet , so I'm going to remove this weekend (weather permitting) and re-apply to the bonnet. TBH, I found it hard going but it's been well wort it with the rain this week . The rain just drops off the surface and gloss even on a dull day is excellent !

What sort of prep did you do? Was this post correction?

I’m deciding between Can Coat and Moonlight right now and it keeps swinging between Can Coats slightly better gloss and durability and Moonlights ease of use.

yeah I did a fully clean with bilt hamber cleansing fluid then correction with DA and then another wipe down with BH cleanser and diluted IPA and then applied the Can coat

the gloss on the can coat is excellent and seems to be good . I just found it hard to work with but i think I am in the minority

A couple of people have mentioned it.

There’s a clip from autogeek that covers can coat application. Worth a watch to see if your method was similar.

It’d be annoying if the product wasn’t adaptable to method and temperatures. That would get a no from me.

Slight update,

Machine polished the bonnet on Sunday and reapplied the can coat using less product and used the MF cloth to apply instead of MF applicator .

I used the application MF more to almost apply & buff off too and then a final buff off on each section with the seocnd MF cloth. Practically zero high spots and was a lot easier , but TBH still a lot harder to work with than anything else I've ever used.

Used Gyeon cure on the rest of the car . That is a lot easier to use that the can coat and seemed like more of a detailer spray. I appreciate it's not as long lasting but all in all an excellent finish but just hard work. Going to leave the bonnet to cure more and then apply cure on the bonnet too.

From what I've read and heard I'll prob use TAC systems moonlight next time.

Thanks for all the input
