Got my car back from an EGR recall and the car was needing a good wash. Iíve learned how to time stamp the videos for each stage during the wash. I hope yous enjoy

Itís not ceramic coated. I canít remember what wax I had on then. Iíve ceramic coated it before, but I find it takes away the fun in detailing.

How does ceramic coating take away the fun from detailing?

Both times I made a detailing video I tried to do ASMR but the neighbors did yardwork on that day so all I got was lawnmower and leaf blowers. The other time I got people chainsaw cutting a tree up the road a bit. And then I got dogs barking all the time. I had to mute it all and throw some music over it.

A LOT of work doing what you gotta do while trying to get it all on camera. Good work.

Thatís just my opinion as you apply a ceramic coating, all you need to do is clean it, unclog the pores of the coating and apply a ceramic detailer to freshen the coating up as ceramic coating is chemical resistant as well. Itís great if you donít have much time to go out and give your car a good clean.

When you put a wax on it, itís fun and games, you need to be careful on what pre washes you use as high alkaline products will degrade it, the worst comes it will just strip it, finding out what brands does a good citrus and or snow foam, and waxes lasts no where near as long as a ceramic coating and get to play about with different wax and see what lasts and what gives you the best shine especially when the summer comes. I love to apply wax. Yes you get in spray form but I find the joy of being able to apply a wax and feel satisfied from the outcome and itís all done.

From what Iíve learned about wax is that show waxes doesnít last long, maybe 1-2 months most but gives you the best appearance. Different temperature will affect the curing time of the wax, the make up (I had tried making my own and turned out quite well which I was surprised about) etc.

Thatís just me as I love cleaning cars and reapplying waxes

I do. I rarely share it around, sort of a side hobby thing but here are the two I've done. Not sure when I'll get to do another.
