Nice! Does this only work if you have ceramic coating or can you use it without?

I used it on top of a sealant and it worked great. We had rain a few days after I applied it and the water beading was amazing. I've tried lots of products over the years and this one was a great surprise.

Nice! Do you have a link from where you bought it? I use mostly Chrmical Guys stuff but never dove into any ceramic coating products. I know this isn't the traditional ceramic coating alot of guys do but I'd like to try this anyways

I bought it at detailersdomain .com You are correct that it's not a traditional coating product but it's claimed to have a 9 month life and it can be layered.

See this post too...

Here's the best hint I can give - go out, find a legit charred whiskey barrel that's been converted to a planter. (like the pic below) Snap the rings off, which takes it to strips, then cut cross wise into squares. Add 3 or 4 squares to your fruit wood (no mesquite or hickory, as they're too harsh - only apple, cherry, apricot, pear).

The combination of the whiskey soaked white oak and fruit woods are the best. Just the helpful hint from your uncle Joe here.

Space Gray HomePod. Hopefully Apple will enable Spotify but I'm experimenting with Apple Music in the meantime.

I've used that company before and the flowers were garbage. They were all dried up/wilted and bent. It says to put them in some fresh water and after a day they'll be back to normal but that wasnt the case.

Hopefully yours will turn out to be better. I personally will never use them again.

I wasn't going to say anything since he already ordered, but same here. I think I saw them on Shark Tank and decided to give them a try. It was basically a bunch of wilted flowers in a box. Nowhere near same impact as fresh flowers from a good local florist and never really revived after watering. Cheaper for a reason.

Thanks guys. I was a loyal FTD customer until they screwed me one too many times. Luckily my gf is anything but picky. I'm invested now so we will see.

Yeah I won't use FTD, 1-800 Flowers or any of those shit services that take a cut and then send the order to the cheapest provider either. I have a great local florist near my house and near my step mom that I use when time to order flowers for my wife or step mom. Unless you have someone local you know and trust, it's usually a disappointing scenario that costs too much for what you get.

Good luck. Hopefully the place where you ordered is better now than when I ordered from them so it works out better for you than it did for me.
