    If the paint is properly prepared, I believe you will get outstanding results. Maybe you should look at some of the photos on autopia of other vehicles that PA High Gloss has been applied to before making an all inclusive statement. I understand that a lot of paint jobs are crap, even on new vehicles, however that does not mean that they can not be corrected, in many cases. I guess I'd rather think that I can do something to my paint to make it look better instead of just kicking the dirt and saying "well I guess it will never look as good as those high end vehicles".

    The quality of the paint on the newer Vettes sucks ass. Just google & you'll see.

    The paint on our Rams is probably better.

    Like someone else said though....most crap paint job can be corrected to look awesome.....within reason.

    Washed the truck this morning. Put the Polish Angel High Gloss on as instructed and WOW!!!!! The finish is much clearer and brighter than before and the reflections are much more clear. Sorry no pic's today cause it was cloudy all day, hopefully tomorrow I can get some "sun" shots. I have to say that this is the best (most glossy) spray wax I've used so far. It is suppose to last 6-7 months(to be determined). You can put more than one coat on, but as I said before, least is best. I used about 3 sprays on the hood--one on each side and one in the middle front and used 2 sprays on each door and 3 sprays on each rear quarter and 2 on the tailgate. I agree the stuff is stupid expensive but IMHO is was worth the cost--just my .02. Pictures tomorrow I hope.

    ah man I was expecting pics, my order does not come in until Nov 16th. As far as my factory paint, not sure if I lucked out but the guys/girls/robots in Mexico did a fine job on the paint as I can't find a flaw anywhere and as anal as I am (see past post) you would think I would find something. Without a doubt the best factory paint job on any of the 21 brand new vehicles purchased since 1991. Oh almost forgot but I was really really tempted to purchase the wax that rang in for 740.00 but hey I am a retiree lol

    being that I do not get mine until next Wed (6 days) what was the procedure for application and taking off the spray wax. This will be my first experience with a spray as I try to use paste wax first and liquid second.

    You should be able to just "top" your current wax. Just shake the High Gloss up and spray--wipe with micro fiber towel then wipe any remaining product off and buff with second micro fiber towel.

    Still no sun today--but I did drive the truck today and it got rained on. Had to wash it this afternoon. Forecast said sun tomorrow so I'll get the pic's asap. If nothing else I'll take some garage pic's tomorrow. Thanks for your patience---LOL

    We have the same truck color, so I am looking forward to the results, also blue streak is the best color
