    7 month update TW Hybrid Solutions Ceramic

    Hello all,

    I know I've been gone a while - been going through a funk and I'm finally out of it.

    Anyway, Monday, March 1st was 56* and I was finally able to properly wash the Camaro. I also just got a new jug of Meg's Hyper wash for Christmas, so that's what I used (1 - 2 oz per 5 gal water).

    Cutting to the chase, when I got to the rinse, I discovered that not only was the hood/roof/trunk lid beading water (quite impressively too), but so was a good portion of the sides of the car (mainly the top 1/3). The only places NOT beading extremely well were the front end and the sides in the 'spray zone.'

    In my opinion (and that's all it is) this is very impressive. Untouched for 7 months, with absolutely no maintenance, through salt/snow/slush and brine and the "low wear" areas of the car are still beading water IMO as well as some waxes do when they are first applied.

    What was on the car? Well early on in the summer, I did the Polish & Wax followed by 2 applications of the Ceramic Spray Coating (minimum 12 hours apart). Then midway through the summer I put 2 applications of the Wet Wax on the paint (dry application). After that, I simply maintained it with the Wet Wax every wash as a drying aid. That was it and I didn't touch the car after about mid-July because of the funk. I get the feeling though, that if I'd been able to wash the car and continued to use the Wet Wax during that period, the sides would still be beading water as well as the top surfaces are doing.

    To finish off the wash, I used the Wet Wax as a drying aid and when I was done, the car looked like I had spent all day on it, not just an hour and a half washing it.

    Yep. Good stuff. The truck is getting the same steps this spring. I see no need to change. Mine has held up very well also.

    Thanks and welcome back from the funk. I've been intrigued about these Hybrid Solutions offerings, and just bought the Ceramic Polish...mostly to see how it stacks up to Rupes Uno Protect.

    I was going to try and get the Turtle Wax HS PRO lineup, with the bucket/pads/microfibers, but I stocked up on the HS Ceramic products right before going into my funk last summer. Now with seeing how well the HS Ceramic held up during the winter, I think I'm going to wait until I run out of the ceramics before trying the new Graphene PRO line. I think I have 2 bottles of the Ceramic Coating, 2 bottles of Wet Wax and a bottle of Ceramic quick detailer. So depending on how quick I go through these will decide when I try the new PRO line. I only have one bottle of the Polish & Wax, but you use SO LITTLE product, I don't know that I'll ever go through the whole bottle.

    I use the Wet Wax after every wash and the Spray Ceramic once a month or so (typically) just to keep things well protected, so maybe by the middle/end of next summer I'll get the graphene stuff.
