Detail complete and Adams Graphine coating has been applied. (Used it on my TRX which sits outside and it's done a great job of keeping the paint in good shape.)

Looks great! You’ve installed it yourself?
I’ve applied Armor Shield IX ceramic on my wife’s Challenger half a year ago and it works great. Once my 392 gets delivered I’m going to install Adam’s Graphene advanced.
 
Great to see your 392 XR finally got home. Looking great! I bet it looks even better in person with the ceramic coating. How many coats did you apply? I was thinking doing it myself to save a couple of thousands but not sure about the longevity. My local shop claims their 9H would be good for 5 years. I’m happy to reapply every year with Adams graphene due to the low cost.

I did...I used the same on my TRX about 7 months ago and still holding up well.

I like to let it cure between coats....I'll let it sit for a couple days and do one more coat.
 
Looking good 😎
I am researching both installing PPF and ceramic coating myself. It’s good to have some recommendations of products that work like Adam’s Graphine.
So far I have bought a Flex XC 3401 VRG Dual Action Orbital Polisher for the paint correction stage and a OLFA SVR-2 9mm knife for cutting the PPF. Any advice on PPF films? 3M Pro, Xpel ultimate Plus, Avery Dennison? I’m thinking of taking off my grill and starting there because I can do it indoors and it’s small enough that if I mess up it is not too much film wasted. Anyhow any recommendations are always welcome.

In theory Adam’s Graphene Advanced should be good for like 9 years. At least this is what they advertise. With proper maintenance I bet 5 years shouldn’t be a problem.

You mean you installed Iron Shield on TRX? How does it compare with Adam’s? Was it pretty easy to apply? You did the advanced or regular?

I think their graphene spray would only last a year. However the small bottle would last much longer. And the Advanced version includes Additional Silicate Resin for Added Durability and Longevity.

I’ll have to decide between the regular small bottle and the spray bottle.

Go with glass bottle, it’s definitely worth it. Especially since you’re gonna be applying it on a brand new car which is much easier to prep. And prep is actually the most time consuming and the most important part of this job. The Challenger was the first car I ever dealt with ceramic coating and it was super easy to install. Just watch some YT videos and follow the instructions and if you have some basic experience with car detailing, waxes etc you’re gonna be fine. I guess Adam’s is easy to apply as well.
