  1. Hi everyone, need some advice on a 9-hour DIY ceramic coating project with Adams UV graphene ceramic coating. I am a a complete novice when it comes to ceramic coating! I did research on Amazon on YouTube and found out Adams UV Graphene Ceramic coating is the best coating I could do as a beginner, so here is my experience and some questions... My Pearl White color Tesla Model Y had 'Car guys sealant wax' on which was beading water. So prepared the car with Adams strip wash (washed twice), Adams iron remover and a clay cloth. The car was always garage kept with sealant on and had no swirls or defects. Still went ahead with Meguiars M205 finishing polish with a white finishing pad using DA polisher. Used IPA- Adams surface prep after polishing and before ceramic coating. However this is where my lack of expertise created issues. 1. After applying ceramic coating, I was too nervous about leaving "high spots" so removed the coating just when the rainbow effect went away in "majority" of treated area. It is a very practical point that coating cannot be applied perfectly evenly, so while buffing away, there were some small points(a few millimeters out of a 3x3 foot treated area) which were not perfectly "dry" at time of buffing ... Hope that was okay? [Waiting for minute "wetter" points to dry would definitely cause high spots at the areas that would have been dry for a longer time...] 2. I mistakenly used plush towel instead of suede towel, this should not be an issue in my opinion 3. Since the car was pearl white in color, after the buffing, there was no good way to see a treated versus non-treated area even with UV light. At least I was having a very difficult time making out if there was a layer of ceramic immediately after the buffing was done, very difficult to see. Not sure if this meant that the coat I applied was way too thin or everything just buffed away? 4. As per point #3 above, I panicked that I would lose my day's effort. After 3 hours of initial coating, I used an extra bottle of purchased (same) ceramic coating to apply another layer and buffed it off with the suede towel that was provided. 5. About 18 hours later, I used the UV lamp and observed that there is an extra coating layer that appears thicker (see blue streaks in UV pictures attached)... Note that the car DOES have at least some layer whether thick or thin. When observed with a flashlight or in the sun, there are no high spots. Entire car is shining real nice! Without the UV lamp, there would be no way to tell that some areas have a thicker coating. (In some YouTube videos, I did see that even single treated coating layers are never "perfectly" evenly coated) Hope my effort was okay and I did not mess up? If I did anything wrong, what could be corrective steps? Thanks so much!
  2. Last year I went through the process of prepping the car for an application using Adams ceramic paste on my car. The results were ok. This year I bought the new UV ceramic coating application and want to see if the results will be better. My main question is given my ceramic paste application last year, what would you recommend the prep process to be for the new coating? I'm guessing that the best would be to start all over, by stripping the old coating with dawn wash, polishing, claying, prepping the surface and then coat. But I wanted to hear from the experts on your thoughts. Fire away! Thanks in advance for your suggestions and ideas.
  3. So I coated my jeep and just had a question. This thing always get dusty what should I use to get dust off. As I don't want to wash every time it gets dust and don't want to hurt the coating.Would a spray detailer over ceramic work? I use ceramic boost every 3rd wash or so ant advice. Thanks in advance for the help.
  4. Okay I am super OCD when it comes to light scratches under my ceramic coating on my black car. I have 2 polisher machines and all the Adam stuff as well. How can I remove coating layers? I’ve watched a good amount of videos but want to correct the paint under the coating before applying new layers. Any feedback would be great. Thank you!
  5. Hey Guys, My neighbor has asked me to spruce up his GSXR600 with a ceramic coat. Now being a sport bike, it has lots of plastic fairings, so I"m thinking the Ceramic Trim coating vs. the paint coating, but not sure if I should put it on the decals or not. Anyone coat a sport bike with factory decals on it before? Pros/cons? Thanks Greg
  6. Going to ceramic coat my car soon...it is already paint corrected. What are you thoughts on the Adams ceramic paint coating compared to other brands like CQuartz, etc.? Longevity and ease of applying the coating is a very important deciding factor as well. If i went to another brand I would still use Adam's products like the ceramic wax and boost to maintain it.
  7. I have my trim ceramic coated. The paint wasn't done because the detailer didn't feel comfortable applying it with the paint condition and didn't have the time to correct if fully(friend detailing, not shop). My question is, if my trim has a ceramic coating if I use strip wash to do a paint correction, will it pull off the ceramic coating on my trim?
