    Just make the change would be my advice. Otherwise you may spend a lot of money on regular wax based products just to find out you want ceramic and have to buy everything all over again. That's what happened to me at least.

    At this point there are an abundance of hybrid products to use. These are my favorites. I have my car coated with the new cosmic glass coat. I've used sio2 based detail products on it for after washing. I've topped it with mckees 37 Si02 wax which has real carnauba wax in it. I can use carnubaflocken creme over it. I can use something like pinnacle si02 spray on it. All kinds of combinations.

    Then there are a ton of new hybrid products out in 2020.

    Something this easy to apply will end up being my finishing detail spray over said vehicle...when it rains we will see how well I did. Misty today so a thousand tiny beads

    Re: Stepping up my detailing game

    Well, some impressions on SiO2 are in order. Its wicked easy to apply the Blackfire SiO2 product. It looks great and feels great. Is it better in those 2 regards than my Collinite 845???? hmmmmmm
    Now both vehicles have gone through their first winter crapola cycle. 1500+ miles of storm hell on RRS means a THOROUGH washing is needed to clean it up and it is the Collinite finish. Except for the few light scratches of winter, looks fresh.
    Stelvio just had a few days of road film on it esp the rear hatch area. Expected it to hose right off based on all the prophecies about SiO2. NO!!! You have to wash this as well....but did I say its easy to apply and it does sheet really well. More to follow.

    The most epic coating in all the kingdom will still require physical agitation to clean it up completely. Such is life...
