Gtechniq Gtechniq was founded by quantum physicist Drew Gill in 2001, out of a total dissatisfaction with the performance of paint protection products at the time. Everything from waxes, to new-fangled polymers and PTFE based miracle treatments, nothing on the market offered any meaningful durability, either in looks, or protection. Worse still, he found that most of the products actually performed poorer than the paints they were supposed to protect. From this discontent came a simple idea, ‘To engineer the world’s most beautiful, perfectly finished, smartest and most intelligent surfaces. Surfaces that do much more than simply look great when new.’

Gtechnic C2v3

I have been given an unused bottle of this which is about 2yrs old. It has been opened a couple of times and according to wiser people than I, it should be binned.
Surely it can be used somewhere on the car?

I think you may be O.K, I had a bottle of C2 and the thing that ruined that was when it was left in a garage over the very cold weather we had earlier in the year. I'm guessing at some point it must have frozen because it simply didn't work after that !

woah, don't bin it. try it out, see if it works. open the bottle see if its crystalised. heck, if youre set on binning it, ill pay the postage, to take it off your hands.

Can you remove this C2v3 with just tar remover or does it need a polish?

Agreed.
Just try on a little patch of paintwork and see what happens.
It's not as robust as Gtechniq advertise and will be gone in a few months even without washing.
Clay and a paint cleaner like SRP would get it gone in the worst case scenario.

meaning if C2v3 is enough on its own to protect a car's paint given the fact that it needs to be reapplied every few months
