Default 5-Star Paint Protection?

Has anyone used/tried this product?

It sure sounds good but is a little on the pricey side so I thought I'd ask before I shelled out the cash!

This sounds along the lines of a paint sealant. To me it sounds like what permaplate says it does. My truck was "permaplated" at the dealer and the sales guy told me that it does last 1 year and that I shouldn't have to wax, just like that product says.

You might be able to find something a little less expensive. Those bottles do look really tiny. Try looking for some reviews online.

Just my 2cents, any "Never Wax" product is a line of crap. In just about every case there is "Nothing for Nothing." If you want your truck to always look new, then it will take some effort. Good quality polishes and waxes with proper application is the only way. Take a look at www.adamspolishes.com and www.adamsforums.com. Great stuff with great customer service.

Interesting, but don't know that I would believe that, either, just seems like a lot of technology for something like that. Is it safe for all finishes? I would rather just give it the old wash and wax myself, kinda enjoy the therapy, lol!

Paint sealants sold by dealers and similar places is an absolute scam. All they usually do is wipe the so called paint sealant on the car, let it sit for and hour and wipe it off. Don't waste money on these products, if they worked all professionals would use them. I have used far too many paint protection products to count and there is no substitute for a good polish and wax which is applied properly.

I used something simular on a car I had a few years ago, and absoulutly ruied the finish on it. I agree with the above posts, maintaining your finish is time consuming.
