    CQUK Outdoor Application

    I just bought a CQUK kit with Reload, and this will be my first time applying any sort of protective coating on a vehicle. I will be applying this outdoors since I do not have a garage. I also have a car cover to wrap around my car since it is always parked outdoors. It is still unopened, I am waiting to use it after my CQUK application.

    Once I apply my last coat, I am wondering which one of these is the best way to go about this:
    1. Apply last coat, wait 1 hour, cover car for a week, apply Reload. Is 1 hour enough time for CQUK to dry to touch so I can use the car cover without damaging the CQUK coat?
    2. Apply last coat, wait 1 hour, apply reload, cover car for a week. How long after applying Reload should I wait until covering my car?


    I live in California, the temp is usually around 70 degrees for me around this time. How long should I wait before buffing off CQUK? Im seeing people say anything between 30s to 3min to warmer summer temperatures.

    Thanks in advance!

    Welcome to the forum. First thing I will say to skip the cover.

    You are going to have to see how the coating reacts on a couple panels to give you an idea of how long you need to let it sit. Temperature and humidity play a big role.

    As far as the reload application, it can be applied 1 hour after the last coat of CQUK.

    Working outside is not ideal but it is possible.

    Since I shouldnt be using the cover, would it be better to apply Reload 1 hour after the last coat? The instructions say you can also wait 12+ hours to apply Reload, but I'm parked outside so I'm guessing I should apply Reload as soon as possible.

    Hi! What are the effects of this cover, and how long it lasts? Can I use it with any vehicle? I would really like to cover my RV with some sort of protection to prevent it from getting rusty and leaky. What would you recommend? I don't have a garage or a carport for my RV yet, and it has to be outside 24/7. I have a very good sunproof vehicle cover for it, but I'm afraid that might not be enough because the weather in my area is quite unpredictable. I need to keep the vehicle protected from the sun, rain, dust, and rust.
    Are there any covers you can recommend in particular? And how do they influence the car paint?
