I clayed, polished and gave an IPA wipe down and then finally applied my first attempt at ceramic coating. I used a product called Armour Shield by Avalonking, it has some really great reviews so I took the plunge and invested in 2 bottles worth. I actually needed half bottle but I still got the inside of the wheels to do plus I have my other car to do. I also coated the front and rear windscreen, number plates and plastics around the car and not forgetting the front grill. It needs 48 hours to fully cure, so its sitting outside in the sun.
