I opted to use the EXO on the new Jeep because it is a proven product in my opinion and I will re-apply in 18 months. In the meantime the self cleaning aspects of the EXO and the size of the vehicle make it a good fit for me.
A thank you to Vega for posting the PSA on the Werner platform. I picked one up have never had an easier time polishing the roof. Just needed to pull it out of the garage to get room next to the car.
Process was the same as usual:
Interior vacuumed
Glass Cleaned with Stoners invisible glass & glass MF towel
Seats wiped down with distilled water and then coated with Geyon Leather coat.
All fabric was treated with the Wolfs fabric guard. (This little bottle has lasted forever)
Screens wiped down with a euro shag and a ONR
Wheels
Wheels cleaned with sonax wheel cleaner plus
Various sizes of wheel woolies and other brushes.
Side walls scrubbed with TAW and stiff brush
Body
Wash with TAW to remove any dealer applied LSP.
Decon with Iron X
Follow up with yellow clay and ONR as Lube (did not get much-Jeep has 600 Miles on the clock)
re wash Lusso oro shampoo
Blown dry with a master blaster
Drips dried with an Uber drying towel.
Trim and decal taped up with Kamikaze tape
Polishing stage
Polished the whole car using my 3" Rupes with a yellow polishing pad and Rupes Yellow Polish.
Spot areas corrected with the Green Rupes pad with green polish,
Car was wiped down with IPA 15%
Correction cheked with RUpes Light
Spot areas polished with Rupes Green Pad and M100 followed with Yellow pad and yellow polish
Car was wiped again with IPA 15% and rechecked.
LSP Paint
I applied 2 coats of EXO v2
Used included applicator (liked the best of any I have used so far)
LSP trim
Geyon Trim

Thanks for looking, feedback/comments and question always appreciated.

All in it took me 6 hours to do the interior, exterior wash, decon 2 steps, a d totally polish entire paint, go back 2 step certain areas, wipes down coat paint 2x a d coat trim.

But now I am done for 18 months other than maintenance washes and it will look sick.

I am not up for a trade but if you have questions I can help you get your ride looking the same. All it take is some time , effort and know how.

Where are you located?

I've heard good things from friends about the California Car Duster for pollen, but I haven't used one myself yet. Anyone used one?
