    Nv EVO beads

    Not the best picture. I hope you guys can see it, the whole bonnet is covered in very small beads/tight beads. EVO looks great. It`s better then CQUK that i have on my trunk but that could be a number of factors. The roof is also EVO. And about a 1 year old open bottle of flyby30 on the windshield. It didn`t go on so nicely as the first time for some reason and i don`t think it works quite so well but i haven`t really drove in heavy rain in the highway since i applied it 3 or 4 few weeks ago. Last application - double coat back to back - lasted around 7 or 8 mths. But i never used the wipers much.

    I last washed this car at least 6 weeks ago with N914 as a rinseless.

    A wax would not hold a candle to this i don`t believe.

    Can’t really tell but beads look kinda flat. How old is application?

    Can you get closer up pics next rain?

    Here at least if you double click on the picture on a computer you can see the picture pretty well.

    About 6 weeks old. You will have to explain what you mean by flat? Nice small beads cover the whole bonnet. It was topped with reload so i assume there is some still there. However, CQUK topped with reload and EVO topped with reload are not acting the same at all IME.

    Personally, i`ve very happy with the beads 6 weeks in with no wash. Even if it doesn`t change they look great when i`m actually driving. Very tight.

    It will be interesting how much difference if any the water will react when i get the chance to do a wash. Maybe another rinseless wash with a high pressure spray down first at the local car wash.

    edit: Looking at it again, they are a little flat yes. So it will be interesting if it changes from a wash and/or reload wearing off. But all in all i think they are still cool looking beads after 6 weeks of sitting out in the elements 24/7 and i just recently drove about 400kms on the highway.

    Yeah mine is flat. They do look like the tall ones you have when i`m driving. The ones on the roof are also taller. It was applied on different days.

    Like i said it will be interesting when i wash it and when reload wears off. If it doesn`t bounce back seems it might not of been applied correctly.

    Everything i done was outdoors so i wont be super disappointed if it doesn`t hold up. But just disappointed.

    I had to try it. The Angelwax legacy coating is in Canada now. Apparently, it only takes 2 minutes to cure....maybe that would be a good match for me.

    I did have a bear of a time getting the polish oils off my bonnet in the sun that day, ACA 520. Maybe i never got it all....for some reason i have more issues wiping down my bonnet then any other panel. I`m pretty sure it`s the original paint. Maybe the panel since its facing the sun gotten a little warm/hot.....hmm thinking out loud. lol

    If its warm enough when i get home i might just buzz over the bonnet and apply EVO early in the morning when the sun is not on my car...I have lots left.

    i haven`t check my doors recently but they did have taller beads for instance. Even my bonnet i believe was taller just a few weeks ago.

    I`m new to chasing beads!
