    I have not used it but it looks to have great durability (2 year claim). It can be used on paint, glass, and wheels. If you are into claying, polishing, waxing/sealing your car regularly this is not for you. Proper paint prep is a must (decontamination, polishing, etc.). If doing this yourself I would practice on another vehicle first. It all depends on what you want. If your Hellcat is mostly garaged a sealant/wax combination would work. If it is a daily driver and sees a lot of weather a coating may be the way to go. There is a lot of factors to consider.

    Pretty much spot on; however there are a few additional benefits to consider when considering CQuartz coatings that make them a great choice even for a "garage queen" car... superior gloss and depth, much greater hydrophobic properties and dirt/dust shedding when compared to a regular sealant or wax, and of course the much easier maintenance that comes with that.

    I can't say enough about how impressed I've been with CarPro's coating line over others I've used in the past... so much so that my own vehicles, and even my lawn mower and snow blowers are coated!

    Give me a week or two and I will be able to show you guys how good it looks, how well it performs, and how much you'll love it. I will also have my client post up and join the forums to show.

    These guys are amazing. If you're in AZ you would be crazy not to bring your cat to them.

    I had my car done in December. It is great and worth it. I have an 8 mil coating on the front of the car also on the mirrors, hood, bumper, quarter panels.

    Just hearing of the Cquartz and think it might be good for our mostly garage kept and covered pitch black Hellcat. Had a 2013 TorRed SRT8 that we bought new off the lot in April 2014 and the swirls were very noticeable and it accumulated sticky debris a lot. Only clayed it once and polished. Didn't last long though - and we didn't have a cover for it either.

    I am sure the cost is worth it, but just wondering in what neighborhood the cost is?
    I realize it may vary in different parts of the country. There are two licensed places close to me.

    With all of the research I did it will probably cost you about $1,000 for everything, exterior, interior, wheels, & glass.

    Made an appointment for late March with mine...body, wheels, and glass, along with the XPel clear film on the front bumper and rocker panels. I can't wait...saw it in person the other day at a local shop that is certified and does the procedure....unreal...best finish I have ever seen on a car.

    I'm having it done to some of my old cars. I will eventually get it done to my hellcat when it gets delivered in 2091 based on current timelines.
