Finally decided to have a detailer to do a full front PPF and DIY ceramic coating. Below is my plan from prep, PPF, to DIY ceramic coating. Do you see any issues and have any suggestions on this? This is my first time dealing with PPF and ceramic coating, and I am learning all these from YouTube, google, and this forum.

Saturday- car wash, iron X, clay
Sunday- car wash with dawn soap (or Adam’s Strip Wash Soap) and polish
Monday- drive car to PPF installer (full front)
Tuesday- get car back from installer
Tuesday-Friday- may use car for grocery
Saturday- car wash with dawn soap (or Adam’s Strip Wash Soap) and DIY ceramic coating

My PPF installer wanted me to wait 1 week before doing anything. Check with yours to see how long before they tell you can wash it again. Most say 48 hours is sufficient.

I used Xpel ceramic boost on my stealth about a week after install. It took about 30 min. I’ll probably just do this 2x a year.

too easy
