From what I have read about ceramic coatings. I have been a car detailer for 15 years and I have a bottle of coating from Black Hawk Car care to put on both my cars.

https://www.blackhawkcarcare.com/product-page/limitless-30ml

The steps that I have read is:-
- Wash Car and Remove any contaminants i.e Tar, Iron filings and overspray.
- Paint correct car to remove scratches and swirls (These will be locked in otherwise once ceramic coat goes on)
- Before application of coating use isopropyl alcohol to clean surface of paint.
- Apply coating as per instructions
- Leave for 48+ hours and not allow any contact of water till the coating cures.

I will report back after I apply this coating in September but from what I have read its pretty awesome.

OT - I did a sill thing yesterday when filling up, there was a tiny bit of fuel spill and I didn't wash it off.

Noticed a mark/stain when washing it today, about 24 hours later.

Would not wipe off :(

I have now used some bug remover stuff and its removed most of it, will check it in the morning and give it another go.
