  • Upping My Game - Ceramic Products?

    I’ve run out of Ultimate Paste Wax, Ultimate Polish and blue Detailing Clay after my recent Spring detail of my black car. I’m wondering what to replace them with or to simply restock them? I haven’t been following the ceramic product releases over the past few years. Am I missing out on a better result or easier application (same result in less time). I use a Meguiars DA Polisher.

    Suggestions?

    In my opinion, the Hybrid Paint Coating is a top notch product. Very easy to apply and great hydrophobic properties, as well as durability. I also have enjoyed working with the M27 Pro Ceramic Sealant and the Ceramic Liquid Wax (bright yellow bottle). Both of the last two products I mentioned are very easy to apply and remove. They both self level. Hope that helps.

      My yearly routine is 1) spring time: '5-step' - wash, clay, UC, UP, UPW, 2) quarterly: wash, UP, UPW, 3) regular: wash, UQW. Does a ceramic product fit in here? Maybe 'Hybrid Ceramic Wax (blue bottle) after UPW in #1 and #2 and replacing UQW in #3? Some other process? Hybrid Ceramic Liquid Wax to replace UPW in all steps?

      Does the ceramic quiz clay kit - w/ pad w/o clay - work as well as a traditional clay?

      Can "Hybrid Ceramic Pre-Wax Prep" replace UP w/ similar polishing capabilities?

        In my opinion you are on the right track. You definitely need to do the polishing step regardless of which protection you decide on. I think you can definitely use the Hybrid Ceramic Liquid wax to replace the paste wax in all steps, and then maintain with the hybrid ceramic detailer (great product as well). I cannot comment on that clay kit I have not used it. I have a clay mitt that I use and works well. I also cannot commit on the Pre wax prep, I have not used it, but what I have read it seems to work similar to a polish while also putting down a base layer of SIo2 that can help with additional layers of protection to be placed over the top. Hope this helped
