Question if anyone is aware. It does matter if you apply it in cold?
Purchased some Adam's 1 year ceramic coating. Their cheaper one few weeks back.

Currently only place to do it is outside, and it's around 0-5c. Should I wait till spring to do it?

Um, why not ask Adamspolishes .
I'd think they would know their product and they are a ramforum member.

If the instructions don't specifically say not to apply it above a certain temp, it should be OK. I'm not familiar with this product though. If it's a true ceramic coating (i.e. not a spray on), it will likely take longer to flash in that low of a temp, so be prepared for that.

Yes any temp is fine. I find it quicker to do it when it is 50-60* It seems to take longer in below 55* temps to rainbow.

Just make sure it is not too humid or the moisture from the cold is not bad ... best way to see if it's ok to apply a ceramic coating is to spray a panel with an IPA solution ... if it takes a long time to dry after you apply it on the panel with a microfiber towel then it is not ok to apply a ceramic coating ....

Besides the first post. Thanks all for the response.
Thinking I'm going wait until spring to do my truck.
Going practice on one of cars first.
I did check with Adams before posting. But wanted to see if anyone else had real experience.
Raining/Snow/Cold, might as well wait.
