So my '19 order is scheduled for the week of 11/05, and being as OCD as I am about vehicle detailing, I'm considering paint protection beyond standard waxing. I've read a lot on ceramic coating, and think that's the best bet, however the $2k(ish) price tag will be hard for me (*cough*thewife*cough*) to justify. I've watched a few videos on how to paint correct and ceramic coat a vehicle on your own, and it doesn't seem terribly difficult. It's time intensive, sure, but that doesn't bother me in the least. So I have some questions that hopefully others in the forum can help me with. Brand: I'd like to stick to a single brand for everything (corrosion removal, polish, coating). So far, I like Adams the best based on what I've read, but am open to suggestions. What polishes/coatings do members recommend? Timing: Correction/Coating is something I plan on doing almost immediately after taking delivery of the truck. Couple questions: 1) Can this be done right away, or should I give the paint/clear coat more time to "settle"? 2) How does climate affect this? I live in SE Michigan, and late November/early December will be cold. I can have the truck in my garage with a heater going, but I doubt I'll be able to keep the temperature above 55 degrees for prolonged periods. Technique: I plan on washing, clay barring, removing iron, polishing, and ceramic coating. I've only ever washed/waxed before, and while the videos that are online seem very straight forward, can anyone in the forum offer tips/tricks that may not be evident to a first-timer? And considering the truck will almost literally be right off the line, how aggressive should I be with the polishing? I assume I won't need a heavy corrective polish. How many stages of paint correction will be needed? (I understand this is all subjective based on the condition of the clear coat) Polisher: I don't own a machine polisher, and am considering purchasing the Milwaukee M18 7" tool (I'm already invested in their battery line). Any feedback on this particular polisher or recommendations on others to consider? And, of course, open feedback is welcome. Thanks in advance for any advice offered!
