Mate, that does look good....Re the.....Ceramic coating is as you say, it does do away with the regular polishing and waxing etc.
I had mine done back in December.
The front of the BBC has an "Invisible car Bra" so I only had from the doors back done, including roof.
Main advantages are protection from Bird shit and other pollutants etc.
When washing it now, it is virtually a no touching job.
Just hit it with the K'archer and so far I have done a couple of snow foam jobs on it. Then clear water spray again with the K'archer to clean the snow foam off.
The water just beads straight off....Comes up great.... I still however, use microfibre to finish off the drying process. Although I think you could get away without doing that.
It is suggested the surface should be re charged a little every 6 months or so and the brand I had applied (CRYSTAL SERUM ULTRA from WWW.GTECHNIQ.COM.AU) brings out a spray on spray off recharge product.
It also comes with a 9 year warranty.
However, I am going to give the BOWDENS BEAD MACHINE when I give mine a recharge. It can be used on Ceramic coatings and will also give a deep lustre finish.
But I have to say I will miss giving it the waxing and quick detailer/protective sealing etc.
We ended up at a place called Noojee for lunch a few weeks ago after a run. When I came back to the car it was covered in small sticky spots all over the bodywork.
No idea what it was. Anyway, next morning I gave it a Snowjob and it came up perfectly. So at this stage I am pretty happy with that.
Good luck with it whichever way you go.
