If anyone is looking for a great post wash ceramic spray coating...try this

I was getting tired of washing my car only to have the "clean look" last about week or two max so i decided to finally try one of these new products everyone is talking about:

https://www.amazon.com/Turtle-Wax-53.../dp/B07XYPS3PS

I was debating between this and the sonax spray and seal and decided to try this out b/c it seemed like rubbing a product in would be more effective-plus with two coats it's allegedly supposed to last 12 months.

So far I am pretty pleased. Product worked pretty well for the price. I put on two coats and when it rained I didn't even need to use my wipers b/c the water beaded off the windshield so rapidly. Surface of the car is super slick too. I think i can go about a month between washes now.

Yup. Wash, dry, and apply to everything including windows and trim. I waited 6 hours and did a second coat but youíre supposed to wait 24 hours to get the full 12 month protection.

I'm using Meguiar's Ultimate quick wax - and luving it. Literally spray on, wipe off. NO removal of dried wax necessary. I don't think I have seen a better shine, and that includes a lot of pro detailing.

Just stopped by here to see if there were any A/B tests.

Multiple online retailers say the new Ceramic Turtlewax products are easily the best for shine, hydrophobics and durability. Iíll try it when Iím
done my Meguiars Ceramic Spray Wax... which is pretty decent but doesnít last long.

I started using Adam's UV Ceramic Spray Coating as a post wash booster to my ceramic coating. Flip the lights off, turn on your UV flashlight and you can see if you missed any spots and have good coverage.
