    Ceramic Coating a 2017 Ford Escape SE

    Gave it a touch up wash Saturday and wiped it down with Ceramic Boost (v1). Still looking pretty good. Ceramic Coating does make it a lot easier to wash the car. Let's see how long this holds up.

    Ceramic Coating a 2017 Ford Escape SE

    Thank you. It is tough color to get gloss out of. It's almost impossible to find swirls too. I put it under LEDs, Halogen, Sun, Moon, etc. They're hard to find.

    Thanks! The Ceramic Coating process wasn't that hard. I'd say a 2. You just have to work in sections and work your way around the vehicles in 3-5 minute increments or until it gets "tacky" to the touch.

    I ceramic coated over the "self healing" Llumar Clear Bra I have on the car too.

It wasn't too bad. The Adams Ceramic Paint Coating came off pretty easy. I allowed it to cure for 3-5 minutes on timer. I checked if the surface was "tacky" like Adam said in his video and removed the coating. The Trim Coating was easy to apply. The windshield coatings instructions weren't as detailed as Adams instructions are. I hope Adams get their own version of this product soon. It was a labor intensive effort. It isn't hard to do, it is just time consuming. I was fortunate my car didn't have many swirls. I only had to use the Adams Finishing Polish. The car looks pretty good in my opinion. Let's hope the coating last a long time. I know it's only a Ford Escape but is is my daily driver and it should be easier to clean from this point on for a year or two.

    New car detailing business

    Just a few things from your website... 1. Add a phone number to your website. Some people only like to call and won't use the form at the bottom. 2. I would also add a physical business address if you have a shop. 3. Are you a mobile detailer or do you have a shop? I don't think I see it mentioned on your site. 4. You call your last process a paint correction, but mention a one step polish. Do offer multiple step polish/compound as well? If you do, I would mention it. You may want to mention paint correction is per hour fee based on the job, etc. 5. Post your business hours (if applicable) Otherwise looks great and good luck.
  14. I was wondering... since Adams Polishes Car Shampoo is pH neutral would soaking even help? pH neutral soap I thought was only to provide lubricity. The rinsing stages and the wash mitt is what gets rid of the dirt on the car surface.

    The "Road" to Ceramic Coating

    I'd add Ceramic Boost as a step.
