Sub tenner ceramics.

Ordered at 3.99.

No way I’m paying 6 quid for a bottle of ceramic coating...

Think I’m going to coat the BBQ.

So for budget application. Make-up pads for application and old underpants for buffing off?

I make my own quick detailer using the silicon dioxide one,I have yet to try the Polysiloxane coating http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Car-super-...IAAOSwFzRZ3yJM in a quick detailer recipe, I would say treat these coatings like gen3 ceramic coating with regards to application and removal. Use a damp microfibre (short nap) for removal followed by a final wipedown with a plush microfibre

There are two versions of this coating, Polysiloxane and silicon dioxide, yours I believe is the silicon dioxide version
