Ceramic Spray Coating on cars that just go to car shows and back

Question

What's your guys thoughts on Ceramic Spray Coating on cars that just go to car shows and back or Maybe a weekend cruise? Cars that don't see the rain unless you get caught in it. I'm thinking maybe just the wheels since none of the conventional Adams products play well with ceramic. What do you guys think? I've not purchased any ceramic coating/spray yet just used Adams paint sealant and H2O GG for sealing.

I’m not sure I entirely understand the question being asked, but I’ll give it a go. 

 

Your last step product on a car that doesn’t see weather or isn’t driven often is entirely a stylistic choice. You can achieve a fantastic, protected finish with traditional products. Maintenance is minimal if it’s not used often. Ceramics are less maintenance if you want to go that route. It’s preference. Some people like to wax their cars. 

 

If you’re happy with what you’ve been using, what’s your reason for change?  The best gloss comes from great prep as opposed to products used in last steps.

I enjoy rubbing on them, it's a little therapeutic for me.. I think my DD SS would benefit from ceramic and maybe the wifes SRX but I have a lot of Adams inventory I think I'll use before. Just curious if the ceramic was worth the switch. Many tks..

My brother by a different mother!  Mine's a 427.    I'm planning on doing the Ceramic Spray come spring. Going to do the daily driver first to practice on before trying to do the Vette.  But I do like to wax and spend my summers just polishing and wiping it down.  Gives me something to do.

Thanks.  That and the couple pieces of stainless are the only things I added.  My last Vette was totally modded. This one I'm keeping pretty stock.

Not at this time but thank you for the interest Van. A 4 speed classic muscle car is therapeutic to me as well but as we all know there comes a time when the knees don't think so..
