I am a novice at applying ceramic coatings, and I was amazed at how easy it was with Armor Shield IX, and very happy with the low cost. The shine is really good! During the time that the Armor Shield was curing, I noticed that my car did not get as dusty as it did before the application. It must be due to the smoother surface preventing the dust from sticking. I have washed the car once since applying Armor Shield IX and I am very happy with the ease of washing and the way water flows off of the surface. I will definely be using Avalon King products again and I highly recommend Armor Shield IX.
I have been using other products and they are good but when I applied this ceramic coat I couldn’t believe the shine. When I gave my truck it’s first wash the water beaded off like you would only see in a commercial. No lie. I don’t garage my truck and I park under a tree. That damn tree spits sap like you wouldn’t believe but it rinses right off. I’ve done two vehicles so far and both came out incredible.
This was my first ceramic coating job and I have to tell you I was very nervous about it. So I read a lot of customer reviews on the product and saw a lot of YouTube videos on preparation and application of armor Shield. I took my time and after several hours I could not believe the shine on my wife's 2021 Hyundai Kona. I'm very meticulous about our cars and I try to keep them as clean as possible. I've had some spray on ceramics on her car and the shine was very good. But after stripping the old layers off and putting the armor shield on the paint just popped. It is so deep it looks like it was just painted and the reflection off of the hood is like looking at a mirror. I am a word of mouth detailer and I'm going to start offering armor Shield to my clients. This stuff is amazing.
I heard about this stuff on Robby Leighton’s YouTube channel, I bought two kits to give it a try. This stuff is amazing, it took about three hours to clean and polish my car, then alcohol wipe and wipe on. The process is super easy and wasn’t difficult at all. I have had it on for two months and the product is just as good as day 1. It makes car washing a breeze and my 7 year old vehicle looks amazing.
I’ve used this product on 5 different vehicles with positive results. It takes some time to do it correctly, but we’ll worth it in the end. Lots of compliments on the deep shine when finished.
