Since I don't have as much time as I'd like to anymore for detailing, I like the one and done coating. It shouldn't need any attention for awhile since it's a garage queen.
    I like the one and done so after a while it fades away

    I work at a restoration shop and we use Ceramic Pro. It supposed to protect the car from anything short of a direct strike
    from a 50 megaton warhead. All these places claim a lot but I really don't know how well this stuff works. When we do apply it to cars its only because the customer asks us too. The cars have usually just undergone a full restoration so I have never seen a difference. One thing I have noticed is when you go to the second step it makes the paint slick as all can be. But that's about all I can say on how it works.

    As far as applying it be CAREFUL. If you put it on wrong and it gets hazy, its not coming off without a buffer. Also the combination of humidity and a black car or other dark color will cause problems 10 out of 10 times.
    I would also use some type of a pre-cleaner to make sure there is no wax what soever. We use RM900 and it seems to work pretty good.

    I want to reiterate,this is my experience with Ceramic Pro. I have no clue how these other products work.
