Gtechniq Crystal Serum

Recommended Posts

Anyone had Gtechniq Crystal Serum applied to their Lotus, I have the option after my car has been detailed and paint film applied. I know it isn't cheap and can only be applied and bought by Professional detailers.

I had my Evora done. It did smell like a chemical factory inside for a few days afterwards (I got higher than normal when driving my Lotus for a couple of days!).

It did look lovely and shiny when it was finished, but it's hard to say whether it's worthwhile or not. I guess the point of it is long term paint protection and only time will tell whether it provides that or not. It did come with a bag full of nice cleaning materials as well though.

Give Tony Spears at Autoshine a call about his Krypton 9 ceramic coating.  He's done my LF1 and it is quite incredible stuff.  Best on the market apparently.

I had the Lotus F1 branded GEN-3 Glasscoat applied a while back but to be honest after a few weeks the swirl marks returned. By the way Smuzzy, what exhaust have you got on the LF1?

I had the lotus glasscoat applied from new but whilst it looked nice it was no more than a polish.  The Krypton 9 is a self healing heat resistant ceramic layer.  No swirling whatsoever after 5 washes.

 

The exhaust is a 2Bular valved system, sounds awsome!

Looks great! Are you washing/polishing/waxing it as usual then after the ceramic coating has been applied?

Congrats on securing the all-elusive 2bular, I've had mine on order since April etc etc . Latest promise of delivery is next week.

The 2Bular experience is extremely frustrating but worth in in the end, mine too 8 months!

since the application of the Krypton 9, all I have done is washed the car and dries with a microfibre as advised by Tony.  The car come back up looking like glass!
