Cleaning a Glass Serum Pro coating to restore hydrophobicity

Ceramic Coating Not Beading? You May Just Need To Clean It

A ceramic coating not beading is frustrating, to say the least. But it doesn't always mean you need a re-application.  Years ago we put Dr. Beasley's Glass Serum Pro on a beater Land Cruiser's windshield, and the coating was never properly maintained after.

How To Remove Car Wax

Why Wax Your Car? Carnauba wax has long been a part of many detailers' product arsenals. It's a great way to get your paint glossy and beautiful before you show off your car.

2017 C63 AMG: Matte With Glossy Accents

We're accustomed to seeing glossy cars with matte accents or decals on them.
