Anyone who has followed my posts knows I am a big fan of the Gtechnig products. I find the coatings easy to apply, super hydrophobic and nice and slick. I get about 18 months of solid performance after which time the protection is still there but the crazy beading has significantly fallen off. 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:
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 cleaned with sonax wheel cleaner plus
Various sizes of wheel woolies and other brushes.
Side walls scrubbed with TAW and stiff brush
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
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.
I applied 2 coats of EXO v2
Used included applicator (liked the best of any I have used so far)
Cleaning up the wheels & Tires
Wheel bucket at the end -YUCK
I was rushing thru the wash process because the sun was getting pretty hot and I did not want to deal with water spots so I skipped the extensive pictures of the wash.
Found some left over adhesive on the B pillars that was easily removed with a 15% IPA mix and a all purpose MF towel
Clay tools getting ready to go:
After the car was dried and pulled into the garage, I taped up all the trim. This car has more trim that I have ever dealt with (or want to deal with) It took 1.5 rolls of the tape to cover the sensitive areas.
I hate taping and I stink at it. Not the prettiest job, but it worked for me.
Polishing the car I prepared for a 5 inch polish pad and a 3 inch pad. Dispite the large panels I opted to use the 3" for the entire detail because of the abundance of trim and the different ridges on most panels. I felt like the larger pad would have been a detriment.
Wiped with 15% in prep for inspection and coating
Onto the Coating
Sorry, I did not get pics of the applicator before I started.
This (included with the EXO coating) is by far the best, easiest applicator for applying coating that I have used.
After applying 2 coats of EXO it was plates off to get the trim across the whole back and around the Wheel wells and rockers of the Jeep.
Coated all trim with Geyon Trim, I love this stuff. Spreads easily and looks great.
Wheels were coated with Opticoat Gloss Coat for Durability and Tires were treated the following day with Geyon Tire
Good shot of Geyon tire against clean untreated section. I can never get the last bit on the bottom without rolling the car back so I left a swipe to show the difference.
Left to cure over night
At the end this is the amount used for the Jeep. This is a 50 ML bottle as I was afraid to run short. I will be using the balance on my Infiniti shortly.
Areas covered were All the paint, decal, door jambs, paint under the hood.
Pulled out the next day:
Later in the day
Thanks for looking, feedback/comments and question always appreciated.
