Default 1500HP Project Cadillac CTS-V vs Pinnacle Black Label Diamond Paint Coating v2

Detailed a 2007 Cadillac CTS-V for a friend of mine over the past weekend. He is planning on building this thing to the max, he is shooting to be the world's fastest Cadillac or one of the fastest in the world at the very least. He will most likely be running twin 76mm turbos, aiming for 1500HP and still use it as a daily driver. He just received the shell 2 days ago and it had been sitting in a shop for quite some time. It had swirls, dings, scratches, hard water spots, and contamination in the clear coat. My friend just wanted me to clean it up nice and put some protection on it because it will be sitting for some time while the build is in progress. I figured it was a perfect chance to test the newly reformulated Pinnacle Black Label Diamond Paint Coating v2. Diamond Paint Coating v2 provides stronger water beading throughout the lifespan of the coating. A longer working time makes it even easier to apply the coating to your paint as well.

The owner of the CTS-V actually holds the world record for the fastest Pro Street naturally aspirated car. It is a Plymouth Duster. Pretty cool!

The newly reformulated Pinnacle Black Label Diamond Paint Coating v2 was amazing to work with. It performed great even in humid outdoor conditions. The owner was shocked and now has even more motivation to get the project up and running and driving the car as soon as possible. Thank you for looking!
