First day with Foam cannon and Hydro Silex

Merry Xmas everyone, I'm posting here because the boards are a little slow lately. Many choices out there with Ceramic coating so I chose Hydro silex for no particular reason other than its a do it yourself application. I did not want to drop my car off nor spend the money having a detailer ceramic coat my car since I have some detailing experience on my own cars.
The paint on the car from factory is very very good, I noticed several 'nicks' from the highway commute on the front end so I will pay for XPEL front end soon.
The "Rewind" step removes any residue or wax from car soap from surface eliminating the need for clay bar. Although that step wouldn't hurt I skipped it since my car is brand new.The spray goes on easy and wipes off easily. Next step was the "Recharge". Sprayed on then wiped off again, one section at a time. Again very easy, The results are very good, better than I expected. I will re coat in 7 days. I did the wheels and calipers with both steps hoping the Bad break dust will be easier to clean as this drives me nuts how dirty the wheels get.
The only down side that I can think of is that this product will have to reapplied so often, As the Ceramic Pro probably lasts a lot longer from the detailers application.
