Top Coat F11...anyone use it?
Posted by: jfrese ()

Just saw an ad on FB for a product called Top Coat F11. Looks interesting. Has anyone on the forum used this? If so, is it any good? I currently have a base coat of Meguires paste wax following with occasional coats of Meguires spray wax to touch up. Would this be any better and does it really repel dirt like the ad says? It seems it would be easier to apply.

I use F-11 Topcoat. I started using it on my Harley last year. When I saw how easy it is to apply, and how good the shine is, I use it on all my cars and trucks now. I think it might repel dirt as good as advertised. I battle break dust on my Camaro but with topcoat on the wheels, the break dust washes off with water. I tried it on all the windshields too but to be honest, I didn't really notice any repelling effects on the glass. For me, the best thing about F-11 is how easy it goes on and wipes off. The shine is as good as any thing I've tried but the ease... THAT'S what keeps me buying it. Kinda pricey though.

Some guy at the gas station tried to peddle that stuff on my wife one day.
She got home and asked me about it.
Had never heard of it before so I Googled it up.
Has some good reviews.
BUT has some really bad ones also!
If I recall correctly, some were saying that it looks really good, but if you quit using it, your paint goes flat reallY FAST!
Kinda one of those things that once you go down that road you can NEVER come back.
It seems like it gets it's shine from leaving a thin coat of petroleum on your paint.
Some said that it attracts dust real easy, but the dust also rinses right off easily also.
Don't know, but it just seemed like the long term risk was not worth it to me.

I was speaking long term, and only repeating what the reviews said.
I personally would not consider 1 year to really be long term use.
But hey, to each his own. eye rolling smiley
I am glad you are enjoying it. thumbs up

SO.... How long has F11 been sold? Never heard of it before... and the website says it's an improvement over its "HPS" polish.
