TOPIC: new ceramic coating for ALL polished and painted

new ceramic coating for ALL polished and painted 14 Aug 2018 22:14 #87612

I gave serious consideration to getting my Vagabond "ceramic" coated just last month by a local auto detailer that offers the service. Sounded great. I changed my mind though after watching some videos about ceramic coatings on Youtube. Other than the initial cost (ie. it was going to be $800 for just the sides if I did all the prep work), I didn't like the idea that regular "touch-ups" are the norm and required to maintain the warranty and that the only way to remove the coating is by sanding it. No thanks. I'd rather hassle with polishing it once a yr and try various sealers till I find one I'm satisfied with.
Good luck if you go for it and let us know how it turns out.

HydroSilex is a universal top coat product that protects virtually any type of surface. The installation is extremely easy and once cured, it creates a transparent top layer that adds gloss and protection. And cannot be easily removed. But is very easily applied!

I think this would be great for polished aluminum, I'm most likely going to try it on my Vagabond.
