    I’ve got the ceramic spray on the Raptor and the graphene coating on my wife’s Yukon. They’ve been on close to 2 months I think. Washed the trucks the other day and both were spotless in no time. All the grime just wiped right off and after hand drying and a little of Adams CS3, they looked like I had just waxed them. Bet I spent 90 minutes combined on all that.

    You can’t go wrong with either version of Adams ceramics. The spray is super easy but the coating supposed to last for years.

    Unfortunately, the Graphene Ceramic Spray Coating will not last as long when applied over the Detail Spray. To get the most longevity out of any ceramic, it needs to bond to bare, clean paint. Next time, use the Surface Prep to remove the clay residue and the wax in the Detail Spray.

    Used Adam's Surface Prep on my wifes Lexus yesterday followed by their Graphine Spray. Looks pretty nice. I used a clay pad (not bar) on it ahead of time. Only thing I noticed was the clay pad (which is synthetic) does not make the surface as smooth as a clay bar. I have an identical Lexus I used a clay bar on over a year ago and my wife's Lexus isn't as smooth as my clay bar'd Lexus parked next to it. The clay pads are easy to use though and I could see using them as maintenance after a proper clay baring.

    Should I add a second coat after my next wash? What should my plan of action be to do next?

    Adding a second application will not really help, as the issue is the lack of the first coat properly bonding to the paint. A plan of action would be to wait until the current application is worn off, by monitoring the beading action, and then prep the paint using Surface Prep and apply the Graphene Ceramic Spray Coating.
