zran22 Within in the last month I have used 2 ceramic coating brands. Between cquartz and adams, I prefer the adams. Anyways, finished coating the hood and roof yesterday.

Yea, I am currently editing a video that I made of the ceramic coating process I did on my truck. I will be releasing it soon, with all the information you requested. And yes, that's an AMP bedstep, use it quite often actually. Im jealous of the chevy's that have steps built into their grille, but if they lift their truck, they will need bedsteps too lol.

zran22 Tackling the ceramic coating on mine. Jeez, what a pain and time consuming. Today was day 2 but luckily I have a few days to get it done. Tomorrow I plan on adding 2 more layers on it. Those who have ceramic coated themselves, how many coats are recommended?

Drle Exactly what I was asking for!

Your secrets are safe with me...... (us)

Its good to see others keep their mistress in the garage too.

Go for it! All it takes is a few auto detailing products and some elbow grease. Oh, and a bunch of time if you're as slow and OCD as me. This is my 3rd auto detail this spring. Helped my daughter with her Accord and today I did the exterior on my wife's Rav4. Not sure how I get roped into doing 3 when I only drive one vehicle. The easiest part surprisingly is the engine bay clean up. The first time can be a little challenging if it's really dirty, but after that it's a 15-30 minute job once a year. My neighbor's have hinted they want me to do their vehicles but by the time I get done with mine, I'm really not very excited about doing another one. My home made detail kit includes:

Meguiar's (pink) car wash
2 bucket wash with grit guards (or)
Pressure washer and cheap Amazon Foam Cannon (MTAC?)
Mothers or Meguiar's detail clay kit
Simple green solution for engine bay cleaning
Garden tank sprayer to rinse engine bay with minimal water
Griots Garage Engine Dressing or 303 Protectant for engine bay
Meguiar's 40 for vinyl / rubber treatment
Eagle tire and wheel cleaner
Tote full of old terry cloth towels
Tote full of Costco microfiber cloths
Invisible glass spray glass cleaner
Shop Vac
Wife's carpet shampooer
Mequiar's spray wax to keep the base coat looking good and make it last longer
