Has anyone tried the DIY ceramic coatings? Ease of use? Results?

I have never tired it, but here is a link to a number of comments about what you are asking.

Larry, thanks for the response. I didn't make my question clear. What I am looking for is some info on those ceramic coatings for the car's exterior. You know the ones that promise superior shine and paint protection, etc. I was wondering if they really work well and how easy are they to apply. Lots of advertisements/promises, I was looking for real-life feedback.

That's one on me! After all it is in the paint and body category. I am not familiar with ceramic paint for the exterior. Good luck.

He doesn’t mean paint. It’s a coating like a wax. My brother has used it, but I don’t know the brand. He said they work well. Dirt doesn’t cling as easily so the car stays cleaner looking longer and is easier to wash off. Snow also comes off easier. He said it doesn’t last as long as they state however.
