    17k miles, 14 months, kept outside in the northeast...this stuff is great, 2x a year. No need to wax.

    If Adam's polishes would like to send me a refill for the APS for this free plug, I won't refuse it. LOL

    Thanks for the positive feedback! The Paint Sealant and H20 Guard & Gloss routine that you both have been using is solid. Great protection and tons of gloss, for not too much effort.

    Can the correcting and finishing polish be applied by hand or do you need a machine? Anything for white paint that you recommend?

    I would recommend using a random orbital polisher when applying correcting compound. It’s really needed to buff away all the swirl marks and imperfections. You could do it by hand, but you’ll be there forever and fatigue will set in quickly. You’ll be a lot happier with the results if you apply it using a random orbital polisher.

    I am not a pro detailer obviously, any recommendation on the polisher I don't want to burn threw the clear coat. I will also need different pads?

    You would need a machine polisher to remove major defects such as swirls or scratches in the clear coat.

    For polishing by hand, our Revive Hand Polish can remove oxidation and very minor defects.

    For adding great shine to white paint, I would use H2O Guard & Gloss. It is easy to apply, and adds protection to all the exterior surfaces; paint, plastic and rubber trim, glass, vinyl, everything except the tires!

    I love the h20 guard and gloss super easily to apply. I’m doing Adam’s ceramic coat this spring. I have a white truck.

    I assume your doing it yourself? Keep me posted on time, effort and results.
