I had a Cavalier Z24 at Laurier in 1993... good times and back then it was a fast car. By the end it was worth less than the ceramic spray lol but fond memories!

I use ceramic spray on my toilet bowl. Turn off the water valve, flush, spray. Keeps it cleaner 2x longer.

I use a cheap car wax in the shower glass. For the same reason - keeps it cleaner longer.

This was the last time I clay bar my car just before this summer. Before that it was at least 6 months prior to my last clay bar and driven regularly through winter so I knew it was going to be bad but it was worse than I thought.

Are you not folding the clay as you go? I fold it after every section (maybe 2' square) to expose fresh clay, so as to not drag already removed contaminants back across the paint. Using the bar in your pic would definitely introduce swirls, but if you keep folding the clay it's much less of an issue, and fresh clay is also more aggressive.

This is what my clay bar would normally look like after 1 section before folding it.
Image
Once the clay is done it will start to chunk off when folding it or streak easily and that's when I chuck it. 1/2 a bar is usually enough to get 1 car done before it reaches that point, but not always, and it also depends on which clay you're using.

I do small sections at a time and fold the clay regularly. I was doing a write up for a car forum so I wanted to show how much contaminants can accumulate even over a relatively short period of time. I made sure I had the surface well lubricated and followed it up with a proper polish.

Use a separate mitt for your wheels and even preferably a separate bucket if you're doing bucket wash. Wash and dry car then Iron X. Rinse and dry. Then polish and wax.

My take on this is TW Ceramic Coating is going to give you almost as good maybe even better finish product and durability than Jetseal for much less work and effort that's why these Ceramic spray products are so attractive. With Meguires quik spray wax I found the initial finished product produced good gloss and good hydrophobic qualities but durability was a little lacking basically after a couple days of rain it was gone but thats not a knock on the product as this holds true for most spray detailer and spray wax products. I ended up switching to TW spray wax as my go to topper. It doesn't provide the very best gloss but for a spray wax type product it has some durability to it.
Used jet seal religiously before discovering TW ceramic. Never going back. With Jetseal, I got maybe a month of beading and not the "up to 12 months of protection" which was total BS imo. I am on my second month of tw ceramic spray and its still beading like I just put it on. Only benefit jet seals has over TW ceramic is that the gloss depth is a tiny bit better.
TW ceramic spray has a slicker finish so it won't attract as much dust, easier to apply and it last way longer. Best $20 i've spent in a while.

Alright, so it rained last night and woke up to water on the car. Now that I look at it more, windshield has definitely lost its effectiveness (still beads a bit but definitely a lot worse than initial spray) but rest of car is still beading it seems. For reference, I sprayed 2 days in a row (only after a handwash, did not polish or clay) about 3 months ago and the car is parked outside. My car is also a sedan, so no rear wiper like a wagon/hatchback/van.

Can we stock up on this? Or does it go bad or separate after time?
