I wanted my car like brand new when it had the third time of inspection.
First, I planned to ask the car detailer.
However, it was expensive so I decided to apply car coating by myself.
I also bought necessaries like a cheap polishing machine, compound, clay and Pika Pika Rain PREMIUM Ceramic Coating. Then I started the application.
The car body was applied other glass-like coating, so it took longer time to remove it with the polishing machine than I thought.
After washing, it was Pika Pika Rain PREMIUM Ceramic Coating’s turn.
I have already watched the instruction movie, so applying was not so difficult, but I couldn’t apply it to some parts thinly and evenly, but in the end, I did it well.
It took whole 3 days from preparation to application, but I ‘m very satisfied when I saw my shiny car which was applied.
I applied Pika Pika Rain PREMIUM 6 months ago, but my car was hit during parking sadly.
It was above slide rails on the left back side.
The damage was not so serious, but I reapplied it to exchanged parts.
Second and third phots show after an exchange.
It is clear to find the difference when you compare to the slide door.
Fourth and fifth phots show after reapplying and then water repellency revived.
In this time, unexpectedly I can compare to 6 months before.
It is difficult find in photos, but I felt the water-sliding looks weaker.
Then I’m going to reapply whole a car 1 year later.
1 week has passed since I applied Pika Pika Rain PREMIUM.
I tested the water repellency when it started to rain.
I was impressed by the amazing water repellency.
Especially, I did the preparation for the bonnet carefully, so the results made me happy.
When I bought this car, I didn’t become attached to it due to a second-hand car.
Then I hardly washed my car.
However, it could got back the gloss like a brand new car and I became attached to my car.
Taking this opportunity, I want to keep its shine by monthly car-care.
I could finish around 1 hour even though it was my first time of applying.
It is really amazing that I can get this gloss with only 10,000 JPY.
I applied Pika Pika Rain PREMIUM to my brand new SWIFT SPORTS.
The time of application was about 1 hour.
It took some certain time due to applying with a small sponge, but I could find that whether I applied the liquid with feeling (from rough to smooth), so I was good to apply it without failures even though my first challenge.
Two days later, it had rain, the water was sliding certainly at that time.
The bonnet is the easiest to find change of water repellency, but side bodies which when I splashed the water were as well.
Moreover, the windshields were coated Teflon at the same time.
Windshields were dirt, but on the other hand, there were little remarkable water spots and dirt on the car body which was applied Pika Pika Rain PREMIUM Ceramic Coating.
I feel the high quality of Pika Pika Rain from not only water-sliding effect but also anti dirt power.
I bought Pika Pika Rain PREMIUM Ceramic Coating and Pika Pika Rain Oil Remover.
I used the Oil Remover even though my car was brand just in case.
I decided to apply Pika Pika Rain PREMIUM Ceramic Coating before my car get dirty.
At the day of the application, the weather was fine.
The temperature was 10℃ and the wind velocity was 9 km/h.
I took around 4 hours which includes car washing and removing the oil.
Then half of the bottle remained.
After that, it was cloudy, but not rainy, so I did not particular as the protection.
It had rain after 4 days and my car got dirt a little bit,
so I washed it with the water after a week and I reapplied it after 2 weeks.
The movie shows 3 weeks later since the first application.
It was so glossy.
Originally, the dirt stands out on its color, but the water
I cannot compare with others because it was my first coating,
but I think it is similar to petrol station’s self car wash.
It cannot last the effect, but Pika Pika Rain PREMIUM Ceramic Coating can last for 3 years, so it’s very nice.
The area where I live has a lot of yellow sand, so I look forward the next spring.
