    i really wish manufacturers wouldn’t call it a ceramic coating. Misleading for consumers who don’t know better.

    Right, if your "ceramic coating" comes in spray form there better be extra sprayers included as a kit or instructions telling you to clean out the sprayer completely before returning it to the bottle. In a pre covid world probably aught to come with respirators as well.

    I'll buy a bottle next spring. I think the waxing weather is over for this year here in southeastern Illinois.

    Unfortunately it's definitely over in southern Pennsylvania too unless we get more warm days like a few weeks ago. Not likely now.

    I would love to have my own place with a garage so I could tape the black plastic and rubber window seals off and take my time waxing no matter if I wanted to wax 1 day or 2 days I could do it without wearing my old ass out. I would have all kind of neat gadgets to make waxing my trucks and cars easier. Dream over back to the real world. :(

    Would love to have my own washer and drier so I could wash a load of microfiber towels after I washed my truck with Wolfgang UBER. But I have to take them to the laundry mat now and for what it costs to wash/dry them I may as well use the self service bay at the car wash then just use the UBER as a drying aid. I don't use nary as many towels this way.

    I love UBER! I use it to clean the windows and interior of my truck not to mention bugs are easier to get off the front of the truck in the spring, summer, and fall. 1 bottle of UBER makes gallons of detail and drying aid.

    Hate to say I bought this in the late 80s, probably after a bender, watching an infomercial... don't judge me! Amazing Discoveries: The Auri (80's Infomercial) - Bing video

    Haha we all have fallen for a few of them infomercial products. Usually they are not as good as claimed or don't last. Kitchen gadgetry lands high on the list.

    I've used a number of their products. Not a bad line overall. I really like their Hyrdo Blue SiO2, but I really don't like their Paint Coating.

    This is great info here. The only thing I might add is that a high end paint sealant can very easily last up to a year if applied and maintained properly. Also if you use a good one it will give you crazy good shine.
