    Can't really go wrong with either one. Just to clarify a bit, the beading of 365 looks different with rain rather than water from a hose. To me it appears tighter with rain water.

    To me it seems best protection goes to PP365, while best beading goes to ULW.

We can go out for a drive without her makeup and she looks fine. If I want to take the black one out, it is three or four hours in the "bathroom" to get ready.

    Hi.
    I applied one layer of UW by DA approximately 2 months ago. But I don't see any beading anymore. Did I anything wrong?

    What was your prep? Did you clay?

    No, I didn't clay. I didn't make any preparation only wash with Chemical guys shampoo called Mr.Pink. But I always use only Meg waxes.

    Claying is important. It removes surface contaminants. By doing so it allows the product to bond to a clean surface. It will also increase the performance of the protection is used.

    Try claying and then seal it. You should get better performance.

    Thank you. I did little test with ULW, Color X, GCC and NXT 2.0. I put them on my mirror in my house without any preparation. After wiping off and spraying with water I realized that only ULW looked like that there is no wax. I seems, as you said, that ULW needs very good preparation.

    It's been 2 years since I posted this and I stopped this test long ago. I have moved on to ceramic coatings for my personal vehicles.

    If you are looking for a sealant then either of these will suit your needs. Ultimate Wax was recently reformulated to be more durable. M21 has been a favorite among enthusiast and detailers. PP365 is also good. Then you now have ultimate fast finish which is the easiest to apply between all of these. If I had to choose one it would be a toss up between UFF, M21 or UW.

    I agree. I've recently used both M21 and UFF and am about to try ULW. Given that neither UFF or ULW stain trim and are so easy to apply and remove (especially UFF), it would have to be a toss up between those two for me and M21 being eliminated given the significant extra work of avoiding all trim, letting it dry/cure, then buffing, etc.
