    Ended up buying about $200 worth of stuff so going to try it and will report back. My older car needs it anyways due to some swirls and scratches.

    1) PH neutral wash (seems like a gimmick but needed some car wash anyways)
    2) some iron and contaminant remover
    3) clay bar system
    4) orbital polisher and some fine cut polish for swirls and scratches
    5) Spray bottle and going to make the Isoprophyl mix for removing the wax and other junk
    6) Ceramic coat. Think I did the Carpro Quartz
    7) Silica Spray Sealant for the maintenance

    WOWA or WOWO Sealants are amazingly easy to use. I absolutely love using them..I just used Wolfgang Deep Gloss Spritz Sealant on the front end of my truck for a quick refresh.

    I still love using a sealant like Collinite, one you put on thin and wait 30-45 to wipe it off. They obviously last longer, but are definitely more time consuming to use. Just the old school in me.

    Be careful with a IPA mix and distilled water. No lubrication for a clean wipe...doesn't affect all paint, but some paints will get marring.

    Anyone have any advice on keeping the brake dust build-up under control on black wheels? I own two vehicles now that have factory big brake systems with gloss black wheels. I can drive approx. 10 miles before the brake dust turns them flat black...Ugh!

    I've tried waxing them regularly and it makes them easier to clean, but offers zero longevity to my issue.

    I am looking at ordering the Adam's Ceramic wheel kit, but seeking advice first.

    I haven’t read about anyone having success with any product on the market and I haven’t experienced anything myself that prevents buildup. Like you mentioned, putting some sort of LSP on the wheels makes them easier to clean, but that’s abot it.

    Probably has something to do with temperature of the dust causing it to stick easier. It’s why you see more of those ‘rust spots’ on sides and back ends of light colored cars than on other parts of the car.

    Thanks for the feedback! I may try the ceramic kit and I might have favorable news to post back with!

    Nice: it will be worth it even if it doesn’t prevent dust build up entirely. Adam’s make great products, so I doubt their coating will disappoint.

    My guess is you’ll see a slight improvement on buildup, but a huge improvement on how well they clean off.

    Ended it up doing it for both of my cars the past couple days. Have to ceramic coat my accord but it is now fully prepped. Was a lot of work but came out pretty well for my white corvette. For my black accord coupe, that is a different story. Dam black is a pain in the butthole to make look good. Still doesn't look great (ton of imperfections), but it's clean and hard for me to bish about my daily driver with some wear and tear.

    Corvette is my first real white car and I love white already.

    Tips:
    1) Know it gets said over and over but PREP. I did ph neutral wash, contaminant remover, clay, polish and an IPA and it really came out well for the corvette
    2) I bought and used a wipeless silica spray and that really helped with gloss and protection

    It's a lot of work (Id say 2 hours per car, maybe less if you've done it before) but my hope is it will last and make cleaning easier for the future.

    EDIT: I needed pretty much everything but cost was about $200 - $230 for all the cleaners, microfibers, prep stuff, ceramic and silica. Also picked up a cheaper orbital polisher for the polishing.

    Thanks I ended up just not fully drying the car until the end of the process before I applied the ceramic. Didn't get any marring.

    Did some maintenance washes with the ceramic coat and looking good so far.

    If you're lazy, Id recommend buying and just using this (prep would definitely help): https://www.amazon.com/carpro-hydro2...arpro%20hydro2

    I bought the concentrate (2nd carpro one: https://www.amazon.com/Hydro2-Touchl...=carpro+hydro2) and added water. Really easy paint sealant that looks to last about 2-3 months. Been using it over the ceramic coat and working well.

    For the curious who have swirls and light scratches, polished with meguiars 105 then glossed with 205. Worked well for me except for deeper scratches. But cleaned up all spiderwebs.

    Cheaped out and went this when it was cheaper: https://www.amazon.com/WEN-6010-6-In...ds=da+polisher

    Seems to work well so far using microfiber bonnets. May be worth getting something with more more speed for deeper scratches, but not sure if that would fix them.

    I'm confused is ceramic coating a type of sealant or is it completely separate from sealants?

    Separate

    Can be confusing with how some companies market their product. They will call it a coating but it’s actually a sealant and You mostly see this in the dealership world with the finance department trying to up sell a coating package that protects from acid rain and bird droppings...

    ...in reality it’s just a sealant that needs to be reapplied every few months like usual.

    Ceramic coating if applied correctly and not purchased on Amazon for $39.99 lasts a WHOLE lot longer then a few Months!!
    And it does not need to be re applied!
    It needs to have a boost from a SIO2 based sealant from time to time

    There are a bunch of them on Amazon that are cheap. I have no idea if they work well or last a long time though. I have seen reviews by people who are knowledgeable on the Trinova one and they seemed positive.

    MTM is the way to go, but it is pricey.

    I just bought the shine supply one. Came with Shift soap for $95. I also bought Feynlab detailer spray and their car soap since my car is coated with feynlab. ive been pretty happy with feynlab coating.

    i absolutely loath doing wheels/tires. brb get them clean then drive to fill up and they're dirty again. Fukkkk that.i dont even bother. just pressure wash them and soap em up and thats it.

    I love doing my interior though. shine supply leather/interior cleaner is my main now. Nothing beats driving a perfectly clean interior/vacuumed car. no sticky bullchit anywhere, just clean and matte/factory/new looking finish everywhere. das it.

    Nice: foam cannons or guns are excellent items to add to your collection.

    Yeah cleaning wheels is a pretty tedious task. When I had the STI, it was awful because after one drive they were dusted again. Now I have a truck, so they still look clean after a week. Plus, they are much easier to clean.

    A clean interior gives me a stiffy for sure. Can’t stand getting into someone’s car that’s even slightly dirty and absolutely rage when they have a dirty windshield.

    The thing that sucks for me is washing a truck now. It’s my first truck and holy crap is there a lot of real estate compared to a sedan. Sucks ass.

    a big pet peeve is like food, soda sweat on the cup holders and chit. Sticky areas drive me up the wall. I don’t want my phone and wallet touching that filth.

    Yep same here.

    Lately it has sucked here. My interior floor is awful because of our weather. It’s goes from one foot of snow over a few days, to -25 degrees, to 45 degrees and everything is melting. Sucks ass.

    What’s your budget?

    Remember: with a polisher comes different pads and possible different sized backing plates with the matching different sized pads.

    I have previous experience with DA's, so I'm just gonna grab the Harbor Freight DA (I'm poor) and use a 5" backing plate, Meguiars MF pads, and Griots Fast Correcting/Perfecting Cream combo. It should be adequate.

    Yeah it will be fine. Some people have modded their CE polisher from Harbor Freight, but at that point I would rather upgrade to the GG6.

    5 inch was smart to go with along with the matching sized MF pads to cut, so you’re good there. You might not be able to finish well with MF pads though, but that depends on the paint.

    Sonax spray and shine. Used it a few times with good results. Do not apply in direct sunlight or it’s gonna streak up bad.

    Yeah, anything larger than 5.5” will get bogged down with a DA. Good call on the pads. I might grab a few LC Blue Foam Pads to finish with.

    After years of using different detailing products, i've come to the conclusion that Shine Supply is the fukin goat.

    Products I've used from them:

    Shift, Throttle, Punch It, Leather & Interior Cleaner, Wet Detailer (on my old non ceramic coated car). Wet Detailer was a bit of a miss for me as that chit streak'd up.

    I had my car ceramic coated with Feynlab, and I've been doing the washes myself with shine supply to help keep it boosted up. Punch It is a fuking winner though. Probably my favorite.

    Also, Feynlab's pure wash foams up so nice with a foam cannon. As does shift. I rotate between the two.
    Look, i know i don't really know you and all, and i know you probably hear this like everyday, but your just so perfect to me. The few hours we talked were really great even if the convo was stale, your really pretty and chill, and your country thats just perfect :'D i really dont know how to explain it, but i think i have feelings for you somehow. i never felt like this with someone i just met, but i felt the need to get it off my chest. sorry for being all weird just idk how to explain it D:
