My garage in an apartment building, a bit dusty. Car sitting for 24 hours may accumulate light dust. Do I have to clean again before the second coat?

100% yes, use diluted/light soap to wash so it doesn't strip the coating. The point is to apply the coating without causing swirl marks or trapping debris underneath the coating

Why dilute- would a normal wash just strip the coating?I thought this stuff lasts a long time?

I’ll just state the obvious... ceramic coatings are meant to provide long lasting protection, it does that by bonding to the clearcoat. So feel free to experiment all you want but it’s only effective one way, sprayed onto the clearcoat (preferably after paint correction and an iso alcohol wipe down).

No you don't have to dilute anything just a normal wash will do.

Thanks OP, there was a bunch left in Westbrook YYC Walmart so I picked up a couple bottles and ordered the Clay Bar 2.0 and a real clay bar on Amazon. I get so sick of washing my car and after a day in the parkade it's covered in dust and looking dirty again... hopefully this helps with that. I've never done a clay bar before but looks really cool! :)

Even if you guys miss out on the hybrid ceramic coating, the TW Sns is still a fantastic deal. Also, I have found that applying it to my wheels has made them significantly easier to clean brake dust off of. Spray on a cloth, then wipe on a **clean** wheel (don't spray on the wheel to avoid overspray on to the brakes).

I used to use aggressive wheel cleaners to clean brake dust but now all I need is a cloth soaked with rinseless wash solution, and a cloth to dry. See pics below. I usually spray a little wash solution on the wheel before wiping.
If I haven't driven the car in rain, I can even clean it off with a swiffer duster cloth which is super convenient!

I bought few bottles of the Cerammic Wax paste ... Used some last night on one car and have yet to check out the result since it needs 24-hr for the cure... I normally just use the good old Turtle Hard Wax but this paste is much easier to buff off!

For best results you need to clean the tires before you dress them preferably using a tire cleaner product.

My current go to tire shine is Meguiars Endurance tire gel. I use a applicator pad to apply the gel to the tire it's pretty long lasting, nice shine not overly wet looking and doesn't sling.

Walmart on Baseline in Ottawa had lots of stock left last night. I bought a bottle of the TW wash, polish and spray.

I've seen lots of conflicting advice and looking for a reasonable routine with not much maintenance as others, I don't have my own driveway or garage (park in a parking lot). :)
I just got a new car, car I wash, clay bar, wash, polish, wash and spray? After 24 hours, wash and spray again? Maybe wash every couple of weeks and top off with spray?

Fully stocked (>20) at Burnaby Lougheed WM this AM.
Bottles actually feel full.
Will give a bottle a try.
Thanks!

Don't overthink it. This is meant for the lazy masses like us who want to do as little as possible and get outstanding results. Having said that, just wash and dry well, then apply. You can skip the clay bar and polish. If you're ocd about it then be my guest.

New Cars are delivered by rail. I would use clay + fallout remover for the first time. After that just what poster above said. No need for 2nd layer, rather use again in spring.
