Yea so we hit 100 already this week. I garage the vehicle and work from home. So it doesn't spend a ton of time in direct sunlight. The ceramic will help with UV damage plus some additional maintenance products. Also treat the leather to avoid exposure.

Up in yankee land black would be ok,



In Arizona,New Mexico, Texas white is the predominant color, for obvious reasons.


I have lived in Vegas and mostly desert my adult life. The difference between black and white care when itís already 100 out is so minimal anyways. Its already 140 inside the car.

Maybe but a black vehicule sitting in the hot afternoon sun even if you dont live in Texas for exemple can turn really hot to the touch compared to a white vehicule. And a black interieur can get so hot to the touch with black leather seats. Personnally we go to Texas once and a while and I cannot withstand the heat when it gets over 100 degrees. .

As Capucine states dark colored vehicles really "soak" up the sun.


My wife would really love a black vehicle cause when it's clean it really stands out.


Years ago a really,really old man,must have been 60, told me; "Be old be cold". He was right, I can take off enough clothes to get cool, can't put on enough to get warm. Spent the summer in Estes Park, May till labor day. Cold every day. They got 2 seasons, winter and August. Bon fire every night.


Mean while, back at the Ranch, What in the Sam Hill has all this got to do with "Ceramicing" a vehicle?? Absolutely nothing..........Is "ceramicing" a word?


Got a root canal coming up Monday at noon, cannot find anyone to take my place.....really distressing.

Looks great!

For temporary, could plasti-dip the pieces you want blacked out? I have badges and emblems on my Silverado plasti-dipped black for over a year now. Easy, cheap, still looks good...

Just a thought to tie-over until better solution.


We have an older Traverse (2011) w/ pretty decent red paint... would you recommend wash, compound, clay-bar, etc... () before top-coat or ceramic coating?

This is a must. You should strip wash, clay, polish, then ceramic.
