Default Meguiar's Hybrid Ceramic Wax

Has anyone tried it before? Does it really protect the paint besides making it easier to dry after wash?

Anything that says Meguiar's has got to be good. I am sitting in an obscure restaurant in the middle of nowhere and in comes this truck/trailer rig with Meguiar's pasted all over the side. I finish my modest meal and as I drift by the guy who drove the truck mention to him all I use on my Ferrari is his wax. He drops his napkin and jumps up from his meal and says come with me. He opens the side of his trailer to paradise. I have never seen so many products. He follows the race car circuit. He says open your arms and drops so many products into my arms I had trouble holding them. He said the best was the 100% carnauba furniture wax. I still believe this 40 years down the road. I still have some of his free wax.

I really like Meguiar's products . . . even though I am enamored with Griot's Best of Show Wax right now.

I think that good waxes protect against rock chipping just not as much as a film would protect. I refuse to put a film on my cars so I wax instead. I haven't tried the ceramic wax so I can't make predictions about that particular product.

Nope. You would need to have paint protection film (PPF) applied for that type of protection.

Heres another brand for ceramic coating

https://try.shinearmor.com/fortify-q...43446681860230

I've tried one of their other products to remove hairline scratches on my other vehicle without success.

I also own several Meguiar's products like Scratch X, m205 and ultimate compound

Go over to autopia or autogeek.net and ask the people who use detailing products for a living. See what the professionals say and use. You might find it enlightening.

No. You really need vinyl to protect the paint against something like that.the coating will protect against things like bird droppings.
