Depends if you want your car's shine to look like shit after 6 months, then yes, that's the order.
I never said the carnuba would last 6 months. In fact I mentioned 1-2 months a few times already. I'm not and have not ever implied carnuba would last longer. I've only implied that carnuba shines better. That's it.

Carnuba. Shines. Way. Way. Better. Period.

Let's stay on topic? Or you can just drop it. Or continue with that whole I'm not wet behind the ears bullshit

So I've got everything I need to coat the car myself:
  • ONR No-rinse with Big Red Sponge™
  • A whole stack of brand new microfiber towels
  • Sonax fallout cleaner
  • Clay block with lube
  • Dual-action orbital polisher
  • Lake country finishing polishing pads
  • Finishing polish
  • 30ml Gtechniq CSL and EXO
I'm gonna be out of town for a couple of weeks, but when I come back I'm gonna go to town on this bad boy. I've watched a bunch of videos (including this particularly helpful one). The only thing I don't have that might be useful is a gucci lighting setup in my garage. Just the typical overhead lights from garage door openers and a couple of overhead florescent tube lights. Think I should invest in something more elaborate? Any other tips before I ruin my car? 😂

i think you'll be fine with your lighting. just check from multiple angles to get a better understanding of how bad the swirls are and what combo pads + polish you need.

I dropped it and moved on because it's pointless with you so you can stop crying now. But I'm sure you'll reply to this with some bullshit about carnauba's shine.

I don’t need to. @jimlloyd40 is the worse googler in the world. I’ve learned that. And even he was able to search it on various sites and found the truth. The second he posted that fact, i absolutely knew you couldn’t return from that.

no offense, jim.

All you have to do is Google search carnauba wax vs ceramic coating and pretty much they all talk about CC being better but whatever. You'll like a fucking 2 year old that won't stop crying about it. Grow up and move on. No need to keep bitching about it or trying to prove your opinion is all that counts.

but when the fuck did i say a coating was not better?!? wtf is up with your selective reading comprehension man. i will spell this out for you.

coatings, real ceramic coatings are superior to carnuba in every single possible metric except gloss. FFS
