I just got into detailing and wanted to protect my truck. I decided glosscoat looked to be my best bet, not having to do multiple coats and top coats seemed like a waste. Pulled the trigger and ordered it. Next came prep. Wash, iron decon, clay, compound, polish, paint prep. Excited/nervous as this is my first application but Yvan said if you can wax you and apply glosscoat.
Check the weather and it’s clear for about 30 hours. I don’t have a garage and have been doing all of this with overcast skies. Application was easy, could immediately tell this was gonna be good. I didn’t have the forethought to order optiseal to lay down afterwards. I applied the coating, all is well. Until the next morning when there was dew all over my truck. In a panic I decided to use meguiars hybrid ceramic detailer to “protect” and kind of act like optiseal. Was this a mistake? Should I have just dried the dew or am I ok?
tl;dr, rained within 24 hours of glosscoat and applied ceramic detailer over the top to act like optiseal, did I screw up?
