I was in an asinine argument with a "pro" detailer that says a silicon dixoide products are not ceramic, and that no true coating has SiO2 in it. I pointed a bunch out, and linked to a chemistry teaching site that even explains that ceramics can be composed of various elements and silicon oxides and he said they were new products that don't apply to the argument, and that I was stupid and didn't understand, that anything is only ceramic if it has a resin hardener. I guess he hasn't noticed that they all come in a initially liquid form. It's like saying it's not a light if it doesn't have a filament.
It's a US seller, an industrial supply place by the looks of it. He replied again, said it was a software error. Now the hard part is I'm going on out of town and will be gone when the return label arrives. Hope he can wait for the return, not that there is going to be a choice.
I needed some more Tolco Chemical resistant sprayers(for spray bottles, need them because a lot of chemicals just chew right through the regular spray bottle sprayer/triggers in a few uses. Ordered some on eBay. I got it today, the parcel seemed too small. Received a rattle can of carpet dye. I send a message to seller about item, which automatically put the item number and name in the subject line. Also sent a picture. He responds "I'll send it right out. what color of dye did you order?" Oh boy.
Took it for Anniversary dinner.
And here we go again. More than 6 months of third place now. https://www.cnbc.com/amp/2019/07/02/ram-pickups-outsell-rival-chevy-silverado-for-second-straight-quarter.html I had a coworker that just went to a new RAM because his last new Silverados (at least two in a row) gave him so much trouble.
Took it to work and put on a coating topper
While you may have seen the results of my test with the TC coating(it works but is hiding something, and low on SiO2), but the spray TC makes (TEC582) is actually pretty solid. It's 1-5% IPA, 1-5% SiO2, and the rest is water. So it should easily work with ANY coating. Best part is $25 a gallon at many retail shops. You can use it as a topper, maintenance spray, or spray wax. I think it's a big part of why their system works despite the circumstances. Used it on CQuartz on the Camaro and it still looks like a coating.
Removed some high spots from yesterday's ceramic coating of the Camaro. Turns out bright yellow doesn't reveal much under blue/white light. Opened the garage door to let sunlight in found multiple spots I didn't see yesterday(strong winds yesterday and didn't want stuff blowing into the curing coating. Most of it was in between sections I did. Lesson learned and easily fixed with some M210 polish
I was using the ceramic topper on the coated car, and found a big scratch. Wife said she thought she avoided the branch during the storm. D'oh. Apparently it was just over the crest of a hill. Trying the tire coating today.

I showed it to my wife and she asked if she ever told me the cow story. Nope: When my wife was young her Grandpa woke up after a tornado to find a new mysterious Cow wondering in their locked field. None of their negihbors said it was theirs.
I hauled all kinda of crap in that Mazda 6 I had a few years ago. Back bumper got some scars from it. My Accord recently hauled some 2x8s. Had a door in the CX-5, couldn't shut the lift gate. Will probably get something bigger again next.
