PRESTO!™ The Original Wipe-On Clearcoat™
WHAT IS THIS PRODUCT?
PRESTO! CGR™ is based on PRESTO! PRO™. PRESTO! CGR™ is specially modified to work on plastics beyond just automotive paints. In addition to all of the properties of PRO™, CGR™ is designed to stop fiberglass and gelcoat oxidation (that annoying white residue) as well as work on almost ALL other plastics. While we originally stood behind GCR™ for 5 years, our customers are reporting this is more a permanent solution to the oxidation and other plastic fading problems.
If you haven’t read about PRO™, the Original Wipe-On Clear Coat™, here’s information that also applies to GCR™…
PRESTO! PRO™ was originally developed for GM, Ford and Chrysler as a 100% solids coating. 100% solids is a trade term that means this product contains no solvents, no water, no alcohol or anything else that can evaporate to pollute the atmosphere or doesn’t become part of the solid paint film. Eliminating the solvents eliminates all the diseases (from cancer to liver damage), the fire hazard and over 1 billion metric tons of air pollution caused by these paints. PRESTO!™ easily surpassed and still surpasses ALL automotive performance specifications for car paints with none of the hazards of those paints.
As a result, this is the most advanced, highest performing, longest lasting and environmentally, friendly wipe on product available anywhere. Additionally, PRESTO!™ provides the most comprehensive chemical, physical and UV protection on the market and is the ONLY product of this type that has had any of its claims verified by any independent testing laboratory.
As plastic surfaces weather, additives in the plastic or paint are washed out which create microscopic pores. As a result, the surface looks white or faded to our eyes. PRESTO!™ penetrates, fills & seals these pores restoring surface color & fighting future damage.
Unlike other products, PRESTO!™ is so durable it lasts for years – not weeks, nor can you wash it away – ever. PRESTO!™will not wash away like wax, silicone or oil based products. PRESTO!™ penetrates and integrates into the surface so effectively, as little as one coat can restore the showroom-like appearance of your vehicle and will never flake off.
PRESTO!™ was developed & tested over 15 years before the first bottle was ever sold. Other car care products use the same old, conventional chemicals which is why they pretty much all do the same thing and last the same. We pioneered the use of new and unique, higher performing chemistry, using raw material never used for this purpose before, or since by any manufacturer anywhere. This is why NO other product can outlast or out perform PRESTO!™.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT? The way the surface looks like when it’s wet is what this product will make the surface look permanently.

Cure time: As fast as 1 hour in full sunlight at 80F. Overcast conditions and colder temperatures extend cure time.
Temperature: Apply at temperatures above 55F just because it takes longer to self-level at cooler temperatures.
Coverage: 100 Sq. Ft. per US. Fl. Oz. GENERALLY (99% of the time) one coat is enough. Typically, a 2US. Fl. Oz. Bottle will cover up to TWO small to medium sized cars – bumper to bumper. Apply this product before 10 am, this gives you the prime UV cure time of the day for curing. 10:30 – 3pm is prime sunburn time of the day because that’s when UV levels are the highest. Do NOT apply the night before as this product will be completely absorbed into the surface.
How To Apply This Product: This product goes on the same way other wipe on products are applied, only you don’t need protective gloves. Use a CHEAP paper towel to apply. Expensive paper towels absorb and keep the product in the paper towel where it doesn’t do you any good. NEVER pour or apply the product directly onto the target surface because it will harden too fast on you! If you do get into trouble, call customer support for help.
Typically, it should take a few seconds to do a square foot of area. Apply until the area looks uniform and even. If the surface looks “splotchy” the surface absorbed most of the product and needs more product to look uniform. Applying too much, the surface looks “greasy” and will cause cure to take longer. Redistribute product over the surface until it looks uniform.
Arrows indicate “starved” splotches that need more GCR™
After application, lightly brush your fingers over the surface. If your fingers look, wet then there’s too much product on the surface. Simply spread out the product or wipe off the excess. Lightly wipe away any streaks caused by your fingers.
DO NOT rub hard because paper towels can scratch the surface if too much pressure is applied. As the product starts to harden the towel, wrap a new towel around the old paper towel. Dispose of used paper towels as non-hazardous solid waste as needed.
Don’t remove the foil seal, just puncture it with a pencil or pen tip. This keeps hardened product from falling into the bottle when you use it. This also avoids accidentally losing all of the product if the bottle gets knocked over and keeps the UV from getting into the bottle and solidifying the contents!
Surface Prep: For best coverage and highest gloss results, oxidation should be compounded off by using a wax-free compound. The higher the surface gloss is before application, the higher the final, permanent gloss will be.

“I recently used the gelcoat rejuvenator on my faded 20 foot boat and I simply cannot believe the results. I only wish I had found this product before I spent an entire weekend compounding and waxing the other side with poor results. You should consider me to be your “new” salesmen in New York. I am going to be telling everyone at my marina about this awesome product! It’s a life saver! I have enclosed some photos of my boat.”
–Mike I., Terrace NY
“Just got back from camp and I have to tell you I just can not sing enough praises for your product! Unbelievable! My boat is a 1988 Crestliner IO with bright red upper half and white lower. The red was actually grey from oxidation after all these years. With just one application of Presto the difference was phenomenal! It was magic! And the amount of product needed is exactly what you advertise. A little bit goes a long way. I will be adding a second coat soon but just wanted to thank you for discovering this product. Nothing could be easier to use.
-Steve B., Albany, New York
NOTE: This product is a high gloss and colorless clear coat and cannot replace or repair missing or damaged color.
