    I've had this on the hood for 3 months and in what I am experiencing is that the sheeting is better than the overall beading.

    On the subject of sheeting versus beading: If you really think about it, sheeting would be preferable but in reality how do you make that work? For example, a car sitting in the rain is subject to droplets of water landing on it, which break up and splatter as they hit the surface, effective making even smaller droplets. Some of these droplets will converge and make slightly larger droplets on the surface. Then what? On the horizontal surfaces of the car you will not be able to sheet that water off the car. Some force must be applied to the water on the surface in order for it to sheet off the paint. If you take the nozzle off the hose and let a nice, clean laminar flow of water run over those horizontal panels you will indeed sheet the majority of the water off the surface, even with a product that creates insane beading. But there is a force at work here, that of the water pressure (and the sheer volume of water) flowing across the surface and effectively pushing the beads out of the way. But back to the rain - you've got beads of water sitting on a horizontal surface, and gravity will not pull those beads sideways and off the surface to create a true sheeting effect. It's just not going to happen. Oh, sure, there could be highly specialized coatings in existence that will cause so much pooling of the water that, coupled with the fact that virtually no car on the market today has a truly flat hood, roof or trunk, and you could get much of the water to flow off the surface. But what's the cost of that material? What's the possibility of even incorporating it into a car wax? And what would that wax cost? We can do almost anything we set our minds so, really, but the market for $1000 waxes or $500 compounds (just theoretical examples mind you) is virtually non existent. And besides, it's not like everyone's car is having their paint destroyed by sunlight being amplified by the magnifying effects of water beads sitting on the surface. You might be able to fry an ant with a magnifying class on a sunny day, but we aren't even close to seeing that same issue with water beads.

    Got a little drizzle on 6/4/2015. Here's a couple photos of the beading. Applied back on 2/24/2015. Just shy of 4months.

    365 is still on the paint.

    Was rinselessed on sunday, 5/31/15. So the car had 3 days of dirt from sitting outside. This is as good as it gets with the beading with this product. The shape of the beads and the beading in general is pretty consistent from when I first applied it.

    I should have mentioned that I only use D114 for rinseless washing. So it won't slter 365.

    More drizzle today. Car is still dirty. Hasn't been washed since the last drizzle that passed through 2 days ago.

    Thanks for the update Guz, I stripped mine off after the two week update and consecutive wash test, but I've got another batch brewing on a different car that I will keep track of long term. It definitely looks like the beading improved on yours after a few months.

    Yeah I was surprised that the beading has gotten a lot better. I will see how long I will keep it on as mg car is ready for another light polish and the next sealant I have in line.

    Re: Paint Protect 365 review

    Hey guys, finally got around to trying some of this product myself after a waterless D114 wash and a clay treatment.. As you said Guz in your review, went on easy and off easy... One thing I've not liked (which so happens to be the ONLY thing i didn't like as its so far surpassed my expectations) is about it is the cleaning of the application pads... There's like a slime type goo that comes out when hand washing the pads... I used a 5" black megs pad on an MT300 at 3600, as well as a hand applicator for the intricate areas. It's obviously VERY hydrophobic and it does not want to rinse out very easily. Hand washed the pads and let them soak in detergent and squeezed as much of the slime as i could, but on every squeeze more and more came out, and then it made my garage sink very dirty. Had to use a scrubbing brush to scrub away the floating slime as it just immediately attached itself to the sides of my sink. I hardly used any product either. Perhaps for the entire car, 1oz.

    Unfortunately it rained about 7 hrs after applying, so i didn't give it the 24hr cure time.. But i was impressed on how it beaded and sheeted right off the hood, as i was driving. As for gloss, i didn't notice any less gloss than ULW. Which is where it exceeded my expectations. Anyway for less than 10bucks, this will be good for many applications. Dang that means if i stick to the 365 supposed lifespan i'll be in my 50's, by the time I need my next bottle. lol Another excellent Megs product in my opinion... Well done fellas !
