    yeah its almost like the pblv2 is gone already

    im almost out of my bottle, i may give the rest away as free upgrades on a polishing job. the pblv2 already needs help to get up to my standards i guess.

    Re: Holy sheet: EXO v CSL v CSL w/EXO - A longevity test

    one week shy of 5 months since hood was coated

    washed 2bm with pbl shampoo v2


    csl + exov2 x2 unaltered at all

    csl which was topped twice but most recently 8 days ago with pa rapidwaxx which gave it some added hydrophobic boost on this wash

    exov2 x2 which was topped twice but most recently 8 days ago with pa rapidwaxx which gave it some added hydrophobic boost on this wash as well

    that bald/flat spot was gone

    Side note, the rapidwaxx boosed behavior on the pblv2 section of my drivers rear door.

    it didnt seem to have a great beading effect on the roof or drivers side however it did sheet well, but of course the other parts of my truck put it to shame, unfortunately

    now some short clips of water behavior on the freshly washed coatings

    just a reminder... the gtech showdown on the hood is as follows
    to Your visual left is EXOv2 x2

    Middle is CSL

    Your visual right is CSL + EXOv2 x2



    csl vs csl + exov2 x2




    sheeting





    I am considering opening up my bew exov3 but its very windy (30+mph gusts) and id have to park my nice freshly washed black car outside

    truck was dried with my big blue drying towel, i may or may not top again with raoidwax. considering using ech20 but i will post some pics after i decide

    lol sorry I will try to get them up another way but to be honest I don`t feel like messing with it now. I waited about 90 seconds for each 10 second video to load and it didn`t work out

    dangit!

    LOL - oh man. 90 seconds? That`s it? Just messing...but... That`s almost nothing, when comparing it to some of the hour plus uploads I`ve had to deal with on YouTube.

    Don`t even worry about it. I know what it`s like to go through all that work, then you end up with something not quite working. Yeah, frustrating to say the least.

    Thanks for trying, and the continued status reports!

    I don`t know why they didn`t upload..the ones on my car earlier today uploaded just fine

    I ended up going over the truck with ECH20 1:15 and a micro. it sure does have a nice gloss

    CSL +EXO looks like a sure fire beads winner. I wonder how CSI alone does longevity wise. I think I may try get csl EXO done to my car this spring.

    I have five months of it on the hood alone (well, topped in the recent past so call it 4 months give or take some days)

    the problem with people like myself is the need to top it.

    my friend in south Carolina with the tored scat pack charger has CSL on it and he bought Cure at my recommendation after we topped the csl after a road trip last summer when he was down here in Texas

    he`s been using cure once a month or so and washing only 2bm with super slick and suds and he says it still performs like new..the cure makes that red really pop more and keeps the coating fresh and beading... it seemed to me that CSL started to lose some of its awesome beading ability around 4 months without topping it with anything, just washing and drying

    granted this is just my experience, which is documented in this thread somewhat

    Ech2o does bead pretty nice. It is one thing I noticed about it. So I can see why you are getting good beading again. It is supposed to last about a couple weeks. But it does look great in the gloss department. How did it look over all the combinations you have? Was one area glossier than the other?

    It could be time for a decon wash to remove some of the contaminants that have built up on the paint.

    Re: Holy sheet: EXO v CSL v CSL w/EXO - A longevity test

    the csl + exo looks best... its not as easy to tell the differences until the paint gets wet and you look at the paint though the water beads, the csl alone has the darkest effect of the three...exo alone is somewhat brighter...but you top csl with exo and it`s pretty crazy.

    i didn`t notice any improvement on beading with the csl + exo side after i put the ech20 on it..if anything it diminished it some, the beads weren`t as hovering as they used to be....

    sadly i think my eyes don`t like water contact angles that are not 115 and above anymore I don`t think. lol ... first world detail problems

    yeah I need to apply some BDX next time...I was gonna try and wait for the 6month mark so if it brings back the csl and exo only sides to their original glory I can have some documentation of it and be able to show my clients why they still need to see me twice a year after the coating

    edit
    ..unless of course they wanna pony up for CSL + EXO because that stuff is essentially bulletproof thus far
