    Thanks again all for your replies.
    I used the Nanolex SiFinish back in 2018 when I tried the Nanolex Si3D coating; was allright but nothing spectacular FWIW. Sprayhead was nice though. Never used in on top of Kami Overcoat but it`d be a step down from Polish Angel/Overcoat.

    Thanks, Budget and thanks all. That`s kinda what I thought. Looks like I had more OC on hand than I thought, so OC it is. May give Cosmic a try after I`m finished with OC.

    Re: Kamikaze Overcoat or PA Cosmic Spritz?

    What`s a good method for applying Overcoat? I did or two sprays into a 350gm towels, spread over the panel, and then buffed with another 350gm towel. I used it as a topper for Cancoat and didn`t see any change in the water behavior but the car did take on a slightly warmer glow. Granted, Cancoat on it`s own has really good self cleaning and water behavior so maybe I really shouldn`t be expecting much of a difference. I`m still wondering if I didn`t apply enough though. I`d like give my car one more wash before winter really settles in and try applying one more time spraying the panel directly instead of into a towel.

    Cancoat and Overcoat have equally good water behaviour in my experience.

    Applying into a microfibre applicator or towel are the best methods, would recommend against applying directly to the paint as it`s less economical and the mist is just too fine to control if outdoors.

    CanCoat is pretty solid product, definately eats Overcoats lunch over the long haul. I`ve used CanCoat & Overcoat but never together...

    CanCoat is an unreal product, so handy and effective.

    That said, I`d be wary spraying on a panel directly, likely go on too heavy for easy, streak-free removal.

    I would personally spray Overcoat onto one of those rectangular MF applicators (atbalfour already mentioned) to conserve product and ensure the wet applicator is touching every square inch of paint. Then I would wipe off with the clean MF towel. The only difference between spreading with the applicator versus the towel is the small surface area will be saturated much quicker and you can see exactly where it is spreading. I feel too much product gets wasted inside the much larger surface area MF towel, and its hard to see where product has transferred onto the paint.

    I get no big increase in performancr/hydrophobics when topping Cancoat with OC either. I feel when topping the coating shines through.

    I do ser a visual difference when topped with OC.... even more with PA Cosmic Spritz. My hopes is it will keep the hydrophobics stronger in the 2 years or so i keep my coating.

    Re: Kamikaze Overcoat or PA Cosmic Spritz?

    Thanks guys. I`ll likely leave it as is then since it sounds like I applied it the right way. Granted, it`s certainly not going to hurt anything by applying more, but it`s probably unnecessary (and waste of an expensive product).

    I am super impressed by Cancoat at least in the short term. I used Guz`s method of using coating saver applicators but only applied one coat. So long as it lasts through a 6 month Update NY winter I`ll be exceedingly happy. I had planned to do a full correction and apply 22ple HPC, but time, weather, and other unforeseen events prevented that from happening, so I thought I`d give Cancoat a try in the short term. I`m only looking to get 6 months out of it so I didn`t feel the need to do two coats.

    I did have to reapply to my windshield with an applicator as the towel method didn`t seem to do anything to the water behavior on a bare brand new windshield. The water behavior there isn`t as good as I was expecting, coming from G1 I may have been expecting too much, but once 22ple`s VG1 is back in stock (and the weather and windshield is warm enough) I can apply that.

    A second coat never hurt anything and ensures even coverage and no missed spots. Try doing a panel and see if you can see/feel a difference.

    Make sure to give updates at the end of winter. Im very curious as to how it handles upstate Salt City salt.

    Will do. I can try and get some pictures this weekend as a baseline to compare to come Spring. From what I`ve read this Winter is going to be a really nasty one, so Cancoat and KOC will have their work cut out.

    Last year when I started to get into detailing I did the classic Powerlock and Collinite 845 combo and it definitely didn`t last past the first month or two. Now I have nearly full bottles of both I have no use for, but likely all of us can say that about a lot of products we`ve tried and found better alternatives for.
