    What BudgetPlan said.

    I had CQuartz UK 3.0 on, and polishing removed it, of course that was my intent LOL!

    I agree.

    I have not come across a coating that required a compound to remove it, only a polish or a cleaner/wax - so far....

    Re: The case against multi-year ceramic paint coatings - Road Grime = Surface Staining Daily Drivers by Mike Phillips

    Last night I was sitting here at about 11 with a cart full of coating products. First McKees, then Blackfire, then back to the McKees, then back to Blackfire. Watching the timer wind down on a 25% off sale and trying to decide what to do.

    Then I remembered this thread.

    After some good discussion with desertnate, who lives not too far from me and has used a variety of coatings in the price range I was considering I decided to stick with the same routine on my new truck that was working on my old one. An AIO in the spring, and a durable sealant in the fall. My truck gets used as a truck. It goes off road, it goes down logging roads. It gets scuffs and scratches. I need to do at least some correction every spring after it gets beat up during deer season. Instead I spent less, which keeps the Mrs. happy, and went with what I know works for me. I also find the process almost therapeutic. I can't hear the kids screaming when the polisher is running!

    No matter which route I take, it's still one of the best looking vehicles in the work parking lot, and I know it's protected from the elements.

    I think you came to the best solution for you and your truck.

    Re: The case against multi-year ceramic paint coatings - Road Grime = Surface Staining Daily Drivers by Mike Phillips

    I dont want a full ceramic just for the fact that I like to detail and I want to polish at least 2x a year. Coatings are good for people who don't want to do any detailing.

    All these guys that love detailing put coatings on and top them 100x in a year. That's fine if you like the look and like doing it but like Mike said you still need to polish it off at least 1x a year.

    That's why I'm into the hybrid stuff. I just used a ceramic wax and topped with that new pinnacle sio2 product and it looks great. I didn't even polish but u can use it over wax or wax over it. I like all that
