    Default Ceramic coating

    After washing the vehicle do I wax it then ceramic coated or simply put ceramic coating and without the wax?

    Can you wax over ceramic coating?

    Im talking the cheap stuff from oreillys

    Depends on the product. I used Meguires Hybrid Ceramic Wax (in a blue bottle). I applied mine after a wax without any other steps (no wax stripping/claybar/paint correction etc). My only suggestion, is to ensure you have even coverage or else it can streak. Some will allow you to apply to a wet or dry car. Some say spray on/hose off, but you can also use a damp microfiber cloth to ensure even coverage then rinse.

    Don't use the cheap stuff, for $50 you can buy decent stuff.

    You wash and then clean with alcohol, then ceramic. Small sections at a time.

    IMO the spray is a replacement for wax since it will only last a couple of months but is easy to apply. I would remove any swirls and then apply, no need to wax. I pretty much apply it after every couple of washes and it keeps the daily's shiny.

    A true coating is a totally different ball game. coating.jpg

    This new stuff is just repackaged "wax-as-you-dry". I just used the blue Meguiers Hybrid ceramic stuff after a guy at work gave me his remaining half bottle. I don't think he knows about a real ceric coat and I honestly wouldn't know the actual difference so I won't act like I do. I will say it worked as advertised so far. It was easy on/off.
