never need to clean your bike again...

If I get this right, with this stuff, you will never have to clean your bike, boots or suit again....

Wasn't the OP saying you wouldn't have to wash it?

That applies to so many people I know (though they generally wouldn't frequent this forum) I bet they would be all over this stuff.

I'm with Bikerfish, I have cleaned my Explorer three times since I got it in April. That being said, I haven't taken it off road and caked it in mud either.

I did apply ACF 50 last month and that has a great way of deflecting road dirt and the like.

The coating is worn through after 205 washes

It's definitely cool, but note the difference in color. You want your paintwork looking like that?

If they come up with a clear version, I could see applying it to wheels and other places that suck to clean...

I'd also like to see a swimming pool painted with it

With all the salt on my bike right now, it DOES look like that!

If I recall right manufacture says they can make different colors for you. The video used different colors. Wonder if standard paint pigments can be added??
