Hi everyone, I'm new here, apologize for any posting errors in advance. Just picked up a CPO 2017 Sierra 1500 earlier this month after trading in my 2013 1500. Paint is in very good condition as it only had 12,xxx miles when I bought it so looks like the miles were gentle. I want t keep it looking as good as it does now and I keep seeing posts on social media about ceramic coatings. I really know nothing about it so wanted to hear from those who do. How long does it last, how do you wash it once applied, about what should I pay for a service like that, does the surface feel like there is wax on it or does it feel like bare metal? Any other info would be greatly appreciated!
So.... I was watching the junkman's 2-bucket wash last night, again, and saw this video on the side and decide to watch it, title could have been better worded for that video.. Reading the comment section was great, back and forth on why it sucks or doesn't suck. This guys case is, one bucket, with multiple mitts/cloths, equals a clean mitt/cloth all the time. At first I thought, whatever, don't disrespect the junkman's video.. I thought about it more this morning and though, I'm going to get a fresh batch of MF cloths from Costco(or order some more mf wash mitts from Amazon) and will give this a try. I already have the 2 bucket supplies and washed my truck once(first time since I got it back in Feb). With the weather getting better and getting a break from all this rain in the PNW, I'm going to give this a try on my next wash. I'll do all the steps of the 2-bucket wash, minus the 2 buckets, just use multiple cloths/mitts. One thing he didn't do was a good pre-wash/rinse(pressure wash the car first) before starting to wash the car. As the car he did the demo on was probably sitting out there for who knows how long..
2 yr old got it with a broom the other day while he was trying to clean up the driveway. It does taper out and get lighter as it continues along the fender. But it was pretty much my fault because I watched him hit my step bars first and thought to myself that he was getting awfully close to my truck. Lesson learned I guess. My question is, can I fix this by hand and if so, what products exactly do i need to get? I did try some Scratch-X on it already, but only with a terry cloth towel.
