Yesterday I poured 500 mils of apc in to my foam cannon and sprayed my truck. The foam was thick. I did this hoping to strip off any contamination adhering to the Graphene. The result is plenty of water spots. I placed a in-line water filter on the hose to soften the water. After rinsing, I used a leaf blower. This revealed standing water on the roof. I chased the water spots with Ceramic boost. Darkness fell and I halted. This morning my plan is to use a jeweling wax to remove the spots. With the weather changing, I cannot remove the coating.

by remove the coating do you mean remove the ceramic coating? If so why?

Because the weather is changing, I need to leave the coating intact as possible. However I do not want the eye sore of water spots which is the reason for using the fine cut jeweling wax.

@AdamsPolishes can confirm this but I think the APC is what caused your water spots. Ceramic coatings should only need mild ph neutral soaps. The APC might have been too harsh. did you immedialy dry it after washing or did you just let it drip dry?

Just got a delivery from Adam’s today. Of course I have to get the new truck polished and ceramic coated. I’m using the Adam’s one step polish(which I’m really liking so far). Then I bought a bottle of the spray graphene ceramic coat. I decided to use that instead of the traditional method because I’m wanting the faster application. I’m fine with spending a few hours in a year to apply it again. This is a work in progress and will take me several days but here is a couple pics of the one step polish.

How are applying that polish? Hand or orbital?

@quietpeen your truck looks fantastic. Maybe @AdamsPolishes could weigh in on this. Would it be beneficial to use the traditional adams ceramic paint coating (1 layer) then adding the graphene as the second layer as they state it can be applied over ceramic. And then use the graphene detail spray as a sacrificial layer. In my mind that gives you the hardness of ceramic and the water behavior of graphene. I know that graphene is standard ceramic at its core but wondering if this combo would benefit in any way

I don't think I would have used APC to wash your coated truck with. As far as the water spots do you have any Brilliant Glaze? That should remove them.

Gauging by the reflection and the size of your trash can I'm going to say you recently purchased a 65" TV
lol pretty good eye. that is the Styrofoam from a 55" tv but it wasn't a recent purchase. I Kept he box for about a year and finally started getting rid of it.
