    Iím going to follow up on this post here as I donít have a long term testing thread.

    IGL Ecocoat Premier is still going remarkably strong after about 8 weeks. Iím amazed. I waterless washed the roof of my test subject and the panel beaded like I had just applied Premier. It looks as if it could go another 2 months easily. This is about the only detailing product I have purchased that might live up to the manufacturers 6 month claim. The test panel hasnít been babied either. We have had day after day of rain over the test period and itís still holding up. This makes me want to try other IGL products.

    Re: Think I`m done messing around with coatings, final thoughts...

    Have to say, if I could pick only one coating to do an entire fleet of vehicles that will see little to no maintenance, would have to coat `em all with 22ple, in this case their HPC offering.

    While I`m obviously a Kamikaze fan, if I`m looking for a great fire and forget, no maintenance required product, 22ple is one tough customer. Applied to this van in March 2017, about 45k miles ago. Since application, probably run thru touchless tunnel wash (soap/rinse only) 2 or 3 times and hand washed, light clay, 22ple Finitura applied in November 2017 and just washed, applied some more Finitura and VS1 Final Coat this week and it`s good to go for another season methinks. Sits outside pretty much it`s whole life. Had some tar on rocker panels, which came off easily with a wipe with Gyeon Tar but aside from that, just keeps on truckin`

    Good stuff...truck is always shiny and glossy (well, aside from winter where nothing can help)

    Glad to hear that your expectations have been met. Premier is a legitimate sealant/coating topper. If I`m not coating a car then chances are it`s getting premier.

    Thanks for this. That`s kinda where I`m at, if I ever put a coating on the paint I want one I can just wash and dry until it`s time to recoat.

    +1. I`m starting to recognize the same. We coated my son`s car back in March with the HPC. I`m amazed by the gloss and overall appearance of his car every time I pass it in the garage. It`s tremendous. I`m sold on it 100%, just with it weren`t so $$$.

    If I missed the details elsewhere, I apologize in advance. Is this application of the IGL product part of your spray sealant tests you have in the other thread, or is this another instance? If other, are you testing it as a stand alone product?

    This is further testing after my initial side by side testing. I noticed that IGL Ecocoat Premier and Kamikaze Overcoat were still holding up after most of the others were no longer viable. They both are being used as stand alone products and are doing great at almost two months with no signs of deterioration, amazing. By far the best spray and wipe products I have ever used.

    In for a penny, in for a pound. May as well go all-in on the CarPro vehicle; Essence, CQUK V3, Gliss V2...although topping Gliss with Reload may be a step backward, no?

    Split the panel with one side with Reload and the other just Gliss. Would be something worth trying.

    RL, are these both booster-type products? Thanks.

    Re: Think I`m done messing around with coatings, final thoughts...

    As I understand it it`s not need to top Gliss. IIRC the water behavior of reload will affect the Gliss. It`s Reset or Ech2o since Ech2o has so little of the Sio2 in it that it won`t affect the Gliss. So for the useally sacrificial layer of reload after a coating would be working backwards if applyied over Gliss.

    Do you get any feedback from those who drive the fleet vehicals? And if they getting any comments on them by customers or others? Cause that is one nice fleet vehicals you have there.

    I`m guessing I`m gonna have leftovers of all the coatings/boosters and such so I`ll find a vehicle and do different panels with different products, can easily split a panel w/ Reload on part, Gliss on another. Gotta use Reload on something as I`ve never tried it. Do you think Gliss would take well to 2 layers ro should I just stop at one?

    We do get occasional comments from clients, usually along the lines of "Do you guys wash your vehicles every week, they`re always so clean..." and some of the guys who drive them end up asking to have their personal cars done. Drivers of the van really like good windshield coatings as well. Likely do all the windshields in the in Kamikaze Instenso as I`ve still got about 50ml of that left.

    I`m getting near the 2 year anniversary of when I started mucking about with vans/co-workers cars; just nice to come in every day to see how cars/vans with different coatings are doing. Right now, every day I see vehicles done with:

    Cquartz TiO2
    Gyeon Syncro
    Gyeon One
    22ple HPC
    Kami Miyabi + ISM
    Gtechniq CSL + Gyeon CanCoat
    Gyeon Prime + Gyeon CanCoat
    Gyeon CanCoat
    Gyeon Mohs + Gyeon Booster
    Nanolex Si3D
    Feynlab Ceramic + Feynlab Topcoat
    Gloss Shop Ceramic V2

    ...and probably a few others with partial panels done with things like Polish Angel Master Sealant + Rapidwaxx, Kami Overcoat (with and without Infinity Wax under it), IGL Premier (still hangin on) Feynlab Ceramic Sealant, PA Cosmic Spritz, etc.

    It`s really enjoyable in the summer when it starts raining. Considering most vehicles don`t receive `Autopian OCD-ish) care, the durable ones with great self cleaning really stand out.

    Entertainment is where ya find it...
