    New vehicle paint prep

    Just purchased a new vehicle and I want to use something like the Turtle wax Hybrid Ceramic spray. What should be done to prep the paint for it. I have already clay bar the paint and added a coat of Pinnacle Liquid Soveran Car Wax. Not sure if I will have any issues with the Ceramic Spray and the layer of wax

    Re: New vehicle paint prep

    To prep for Seal N Shine, I used Turtle Wax Clean Finish Polishing Compound. It completely stripped all the previously applied sealants and left the finish perfect for the immediate application of the Seal N Shine. You could use the new Ceramic Polish & Wax to prep for the Ceramic Spray Coating, but you would need to wait 24 hours before applying the spray coating.

    What should be done to prep the paint for it.
    I have already clay bar the paint and added
    a coat of Pinnacle Liquid Soveran Car Wax.

    Not sure if I will have any issues with the
    Ceramic Spray and the layer of wax
    In the world of detailing, when it comes to
    Layering different types of last step products
    (LSPs): it is considered a “Best Practice” to
    apply the LSP that’s based on synthetic/man-made
    ingredients first-most; and then, afterwards: the
    LSP that’s based on natural ingredients—such as
    Carnauba Wax.


    •IMO:
    -By adding that coat of Pinnacle Liquid Souveran
    Car Wax (a “Hybrid” that contains both natural
    and man-made/synthetic ingredients)...

    -There is a possibility that you just might have
    issues when adding/layering a coat of a fully
    synthetic LSP, such as Turtle Wax Hybrid Ceramic
    Spray Coating, on top of the Liquid Souveran Wax
    (a Natural/Synthetic combination (Hybrid) LSP.



    -You can always try a “Test Spot” and
    see, first-hand, what kind of results
    you’ll get: both immediately; and long-term.

    ***********************************

    •If it was me, that was wanting to use this
    Turtle Wax Coating product:
    -I’d start over by first removing the Pinnacle
    Liquid Souveran, via polishing; then perform
    a paint wipe-down with one of the various
    Coating prep products available here on AGO.

    Either that, or:
    -wait awhile; and enjoy the brilliance that is
    Pinnacle Liquid Souveran Wax—until it has
    had the chance to wear off.

    I think I will wait it out a bit. What is the typical lifespan of this wax. And when I decide to do it proceed with the polishing and paint rub down? What about clay?
