    Which product to use when?

    Hi everyone!

    So heres my deal.
    Had the car ceramic coated with CQUK 3.0 and PPF. They cured it for about 24 hours indoors. When I picked it up it was raining and I drove it home. Now it's dirty and I want to wash it. This all happened last Thursday (now it's Monday).

    I ordered a bunch of things on Amazon (reset, elixir, Hydro2 Lite). Not sure what I should use to wash it. Just reset?
    or Should I do reset, and then Elixir as a drying aid?

    I also ordered a foam cannon, some high quality micro fiber towels, some wash mitts and 2 buckets. Just not sure how to get the most out of my ceramic coating that I paid so much for and I want my car to be shiny

    Thanks!

    I personally would not wash it for a week.
    However, the only thing I would do (if necessary) is (Reset) with a two bucket wash or foam cannon.
    You could use Elixir as a drying aid if you would like.

    I would not use Hydro Lite on a ceramic-coated car.

    Just my thoughts...

    Thank you. What about on the mags? Hydro Lite? or also reset and Elixir?

    Did you put CQUK 3.0 on the wheels?

    Based on what you ordered I would recommend using reset and using Elixir as a drying aid whenever you choose to.

    If those wheels are uncoated / bare aluminum, the use a metal polish to clean then up when they need it and follow up with a sealant. Elixir or Hydro Lite would work to maintain as well.
