Best Gloss/Shine

Question

So my car is a garage queen and never sees rain/snow etc. I'm reading up on how great the Ceramic spray coating is and was wondering if i would see a difference between using CSC and my regular routine of Patriot wax with Glaze?  I don't really care about how hydrophobic since it never sees any harsh weather. Thoughts?

Not really. If your paint is properly prepared from the start, you won't notice a lot of shine difference between using the CS and the Patriot.  I have a garage queen too and it has always just had the Patriot and Glaze, or  more recently the Ceramic Wax and Boost.   That's been what I'm using now.

So a misconception is that your "shine" is provided by last step products (LSP).  That's actually not true.  It's more like a small additive at the end.  High quality gloss is provided by exceptional paint preparation and polishing.  We could show you cars that have zero protection and you'd swear they have an amazing LSP on them.  It's all in the preparation leading up to it.  Once your paint is polished to perfection (or satisfaction), then you can start to layer up the protection.

 

The reality is you won't see much difference between CSC and wax.  Given that it doesn't see much weather (if any), a wax is a much simpler routine to go with that comes with a simpler installation.  Ceramic coatings can provide deep gloss in theory, but they're really just locking that gloss up.  The effect comes from the process.  And CSC isn't a true, full coating.

 

Hope this helps.
