    Will do my best to do a long term test on this.

    Quick update. I washed it today. So the hood had sat undisturbed for 15 days. Here are some beading photos and some videos. These were taken with my iphone.


    I used the mist setting on the nozzle for these photos.

    Here is the unprotected side



    Here is the beading of ULW



    Beading of Paint Protect 365. This is consistent with the beading I see on the hood that is on my daily driver.



    Beading of M21. Looks a little like Paint Protect.



    Some more beading shots from a different angle

    ULW



    M21

    Paint Protect Sheeting



    Tried to simulate some rain with the shower setting on the nozzle and holding it high.

    As I was doing this, I have to say that Paint Protect is a sheeting type protection. Also while doing this ULW showed the most beading behavior and very nicely tight uniform beading. M21 was more sheeting and the beading closely resembled that of paint protect. I ended up washing this hood 10 times and they all are still performing quite well. I used Hyper Wash as my soap of choice. Awesome soap by the way. After I washed it one last time, I noticed that the sheeting of paint protect had slown down. It was sheeting slightly slower than M21. Initially it was sheeting a little quicker than M21. All three sheet quite well.

    I will wash it another 10 times in a week or so and I will make another update.

    Enjoy the update.

    GREAT sampling of the three products. After what you saw and experience, which product would you recommend or prefer? Or why would you chose one over the other product? I personally have been happy with ULW but recently M21.

    Tough question to answer. But I would reach for either UW or M21 and I would recommend those without hesitation. I find both of these to perform very well. I guess I had higher expectations for Paint Protect and to me it's a product that is not a must have in my arsenal.

    Nice update Guz!

    It seems like the beading in order of best to worst goes UW ---> M21 ---> PP365

    Whereas the sheeting in order of best to worst is the reverse of the above (which kinda makes sense really).

    In both cases, M21 and PP365 were very close.

    Thanks again for taking the time to do this..

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.

    Ok, so what are you basing your decision on, Beading/sheeting, ease of application/looks or durability?

    According to Michael, Paint Protect is Meguiars longest lasting LSP, so if someone were looking for something purely based on Durability, I would think Paint Protect would be the clear winner here, NO?.
