*In Reference* - TEFLON Paint Sealant

WELL! ... should I have kept this one to myself?!?

I wasn't trying to scam anyone, rather dish out some insider-type car-wash tricks and I didn't have any ulterior motives, other than justifying having cases of this stuff lying around and making a few bucks for the trouble.
Due to the disbelief; I figured I'd give up the info so as not to mistaken for a quack.

Autech Exterior Paint Sealant with Teflon
$22.50/32oz. bottle.

They have smaller bottles available but the price is ridiculous for the product. I've used this stuff on my car twice a year since 2005, and with the well-used look of my front bumper notwithstanding; the car STILL gets mistaken for a newer model. That's why I swear by it.

I found out about this stuff as a salesperson, but didn't come across it until years later while working at a detail shop. I got a 32oz. bottle of this stuff five years ago and still have more than half of it left. The season for details is back and I was worried I'd run out and not be able to find it, or have access to it anymore, when I bothered to call them directly.

The website will tell you everything you'd ever want to know about automated car-wash systems; but there's no mention anywhere of the specific lines of hand or buffer applied waxes and other chemicals they make and peddle to the car-wash/spa/dealership owners.
http://www.autec-carwash.com/contactus.cfm
The staff is very polite, and small; but for that reason there's no catalog for you to peruse. If you know what you want, the products you want to order can be placed directly with them.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm redoing my car this week so I'll post those in here too.
I encourage someone other than myself to take the plunge as well and post some before/after shots... I've done it by hand and the car looked as if the paint was still wet! This should be the last step EVERY TIME you wax your car!

Check this sealer out for yourself though, Autech will appreciate the business and I'll feel better too!

Not at all. Modern cynicism doesn't allow much give and take... but thanks for the faith.

Good Zombie!

Working through the link, I'm only seeing car wash size (5 gal.) offerings right now, the other categories come up blank.
