Keep your car cleaner and scratch-free with a high-tech paint coating
This is the part when I tell you that you should be coating your paint in "ceramic nanoparticles." Yep! The hand-applied coating chemically bonds with your car’s exterior surfaces (not just paint -- the windows, too) and creates an extremely hard finish that is so durable it can even make your paint scratch-resistant, while repelling water and other hazards.
"What you’ll see is a finish that has depth like never before [and] amazing gloss," says Moe. Your car will also get less dirty, with the normal amount of dirt you'd see after two days suddenly representing a fortnight's worth of accumulation. And when you do wash your car, the dirt simply rinses off, which, as Moe poignantly puts it, "means less work and more time driving."
There are several of these coatings on the market, like CQuartz and Optimum Gloss-Coat. Depending on the product and the size of your car, a professional shop might charge $350-$1500 to apply one, although you can totally do it yourself from the comfort of home.
