    Video: 10-month ceramic coating update! + Chemical torture test!

    Hi guys!

    In this week's video, I give you a 10-month ceramic coating update so we can evaluate its durability and I also submit the coating to a chemical torture test! I applied CarPro CQuartz UK 3.0 topped by CarPro Gliss last year, so in this video you'll see how it stood up to the test of time and to the elements.

    I also answer a popular question: how do you remove a ceramic coating when it comes towards the end of its life cycle?

    Enjoy the video!

    Did you use any maintenance type products during the time this coating combination has been on the paint?

    Of course. I would maintain the coating with CarPro Eraser at the beginning, and when I discovered Bead Maker, I switched to Bead Maker. However, in the past month or two, I haven't applied any toppers and before the video, I did another decon pre-wash using Optimum Power Clean to remove left over traces of those toppers.

    I have had much experience with CQUK Edition (the version prior to UK 3.0) and that one too easily lasted 2 years on my previous BMW.

    I've not ventured into coatings yet....the one you used....how would you rate it as far of ease of application...and do you think it would be a good first coating for a newbie?

    You also mentioned you applied Gliss.....does that only get applied when you do the coating itself?

    BTW....thanks for the video

    Help me get this straight...

    Initially:
    A Coating was applied over a Coating.

    Since then:
    There have been three (3) various
    products used for “maintenance”.

    As such:
    Which one of the initially applied Coatings
    is this 10 month update actually about?

    TIA.

    Since when did sheeting become more important than beading?
    Iíd love to see you try and prove that.
    I challenge you to do a long term 50/50 on a vehicle.

    Wait you maintain with Carpro Eraser? I thought Eraser is the pre coating prep wipe? Perhaps a typo?

    How many miles on car since applied? Is the car garaged? Driven through snow or salt?

    How many times was another non washing product applied?

    Heheh, no that was a mistake. Should have been RELOAD. Thanks for pointing that out.

    The car was driven 10,000km and is a daily driver. I stopped using toppers about two months prior to this video, and did a pre-wash with Optimum Power Clean before the video to make sure any topper residue (if any) was removed...

    But again, despite any efforts I put in, some will always find a way to complain and criticize. I'm open to constructive criticism, just not sarcasm and negativity (or trolling) that some other users here (not you so far) are showing.
