Forensic detailing has some good videos on these.
Plus loads more on spray on ceramics and ceramic coatings.
I generally apply a good lasting wax when I have time and then for top up in between use the rapid ceramic coating. I used to use HD wax, but have some UHD wax on the way which seems to last longer and is meant to be glossier and easier to apply. My only problem is that it looks a bit cold over the next few days to apply it.
A good lasting wax should last 3-6 months depending on conditions where as these spray on ceramics seem to only last a few weeks.
I generally avoid the hybrids, mainly because they don’t fit my typical cleaning regime and also because I’d rather place a top quality wax down first.
I know with the Meguiars HC it suggests the first application isn't rinsed off but buffed off instead, though being lazy and not reading the instructions before using it, I never did that and it still works well. I can't imagine any of the other similar sprays from decent brands are any worse.
Given it's so easy to just spray a couple of times on each panel and blast with the pressure washer, i've never been worried about whether it lasts a month or three months, just top up a little bit each wash, it takes 2 minutes.
Is that Hyrdo2 stuff good? I think I am being left behind in the world of sealants/waxes. I have Collonite, but it's quite laborious to apply. I've also tried AG Polar Seal, which is easier, but it still needs decanting into the foam bottle first and really needs to be applied regularly.
I like the look of Hyrdo2 because it seems as though you get a decent couple of months of protection by just spritzing it over a wet car and pressure rinsing, which would be especially ideal during the winter - but part of me thinks it's too good to be true. I've watched a few videos and can't see how it's a thorough application method.
Cheers. I might pick some up and try it for my next wash.
I guess it also has the added benefit of meaning less contact with the paintwork. I've already started using a water filter so I don't have to towel dry the car, if I switch to a spray sealant, then the only time I'll ever need to actually touch the paintwork is when washing.
Meguiars Vera brush arrived today. Absolutely brilliant for front of the wheels and lower sills.
If you mean this - don't drop it! I dropped mine and it fell apart and the connections inside snapped, so the handle won't stay on and the back only kinda half fitted back onto the front
This has made itself apparent to me too - we're about to move out of London and get a place with a garage and driveway. But honestly the value of that much space, unfortunately, will almost never be worth less than a car! If it's not workshop it's deep storage or DIY stuff etc, or it could be an extra room. A car would almost never win compared to my other plansWhat I’d give for a garage - but the combination of London prices and the fact it would get turned into a gym make that prospect moot I guess

As we are seeing more damp, frosty mornings are there any recommended in car screen clothes/sponges people use and rate?
