HB has had mixed reviews that i've read about it. I have not used it, but if I were to use anything else I would either use 22PLE or Cquartz Finest. OC doesn't have the "best" look, but it is the most proven true permanent coating out there. There are guys out there with 5 years on their OC. It's hard to beat that when it comes to your paint. HB some have gotten less than 1 year out of. Either way though, good luck!
