My dealer will have strict instructions not to do any pre-delivery cleaning. I want the plastic wrap still on the car. I'll remove, polish as needed and do a full buff and ceramic.

One added benefit of MIC top... nothing that I need to detail is too high for me to reach!
Same... But never did a ceramic coat before. I'm fulling versed in polishing though... Rotary, orbital, a wack of pads and polished...
I DEFINITELY don't want the typical sercice wash on my new truck... You know, the 1 sudless bucket, full of grit and a push broom for scrubbing...? 😱😱😱

I’m afraid to do “real ceramic” at home, the little bottle of liquid. If you screw it up it’s a bitch to fix. I’ve been using Chemical Guys HydroSlick followed by HydroCharge with great results. Doesn’t last as long but much easier to work with.

Yeah I’m tempted to do the ceramic myself after the ppf but not sure yet, I also have a big bottle of Gyeon wet coat… I mean when I’m not driving it it will be in shop so doubt I’d have to do much to keep it up.

I am a detailer by trade, first thing I will do

I purchased the R1 ceramic sealant, now I am just waiting on my bronco. This will be the first vehicle I am using the ceramic coating on, and spent the extra money on R1 after experimenting with lower priced brands at Walmart. The restoration shop that did a vehicle for my dad highly recommended R1.

Yeah... It's like it has to stay "wet" for so long before removing it or something. Too long and you're f'd...?
I gotta do more research on it.
I'm definitely not paying hundreds to have someone else do it!

more than hundreds usually for multiple coats that supposedly last up to 5 years. I had my STi coated and it’s a game changer. Always looks wet and nothing sticks to it. The only issue I’ve had is it will still get water spots if it gets hit by sprinklers.

I use hybrid solutions ceramic by turtle wax. I'm very impressed with it.

I already have my ceramic kit ready to go. This will be the first vehicle I have done, let me know how it goes and your feedback. Sounds like it’s a necessity!

I had my Badlands professionally ceramic coated. They did a great job, even the wheels. Yeah, its a little pricey but well worth it in the long run. Makes it a breeze to keep clean.
