    Try Goo Gone

    Might I suggest a coating (OptiCoat, CQuartz, Gtechniq)

    CG blacklight for a sealant then CG Black for a wax. Both can be applied by hand, easy on/off. Of course I'll warn you now, once bitten by the detailing bug, game over.

    I agree with Bullitt3309, we all have our opinions and personally its a hobby for me. Being its a new ride with dark color, I would suggest BlackFire products if its depth you after, again just my 2 cents :thumb2:

    My local oriellys has stuff called Klean strip aircraft
    Adhesive remover or look for 3m adhesive remover and that will get rid of the tint crap. From there you will at a minimum have to compound the windows to get the scratches out. If that doesn't work Carpro has window correction pads that's will you will need to fix the scratches.

    I just sprayed an aerosol window cleaner on mine, let it set for a minute or so, and screamed it off with a razor blade.

    Would you please describe this process. How loud do you yell at it? Do you say mean shit to it or what? Do you cut it while screaming at it? So confused but interested in the process.....

    WD40 takes off sticky residue.

    What would be recommended for UV protection? My car needs to sit in a parking lot for up to a week at a time. I live in the Las Vegas area so the sun and heat is extreme.

    I am wondering if the original poster has found new products that they recommend, have the original products been replaced by new products, or what their opinion is on ceramic coating and if it's worth the investment. Great write up though.

    I picked up my 08 SGT, Vista Blue, last winter, it sat in the garage until spring. This car had been ceramic’d just before I got it, probably last fall. It looked / looks amazing.

    Other than washing, should I be treating this with anything, should I wax over that or just keep it clean? I have some ceramic spray (not sure which exactly without looking) and I’m wondering if I should be keeping it tuned up with that or?

    Hey, Boats. Your ride is sweet and I'm not a blue guy. Ceramic coating isn't a Get Out of Jail Free card. It will get dirty! Regular washing is key, but I'm seriously anti-drive-thru-car-wash. However, whether you use a drive-thru, hand spray, or (what I always do) hand wash at home, there's a bunch of products out there that will keep your baby shiny & nice. At the moment my favorite is Meguiar's Hybrid Ceramic Detailer. Using two micro fiber towels (one-wax on, the other wax off.....remember??) follow the directions. Products like this can also also be used, very easily & effectively, as a 'drying agent'. This stuff is my hobby. Got more questions.........hey, it's clean car season!
