After you have applied and removed residue yes but i wouldnt recommend it while the product is still on the glass as it could cause issues when removing the residue.

I will be applying G1 for the second time this weekend. I applied it around January this year to my M140i, write up found here - http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/foru...d.php?t=389331

Recently my windscreen got cracked by a stone so it's being replaced this week.

Yes the application of G1 is a long process but I love the performance of it. I've used other rain repellants too like H2Go etc and find them also very good in terms of performance but it's the durability for me that wins.

On flicking through youtube, it seems that in this video at 1 minute 20seconds, the detailer mixes G2 and IPA in a spray bottle -
Has anyone else done this and does it make the removal of the G1 residue any easier?

If you look on the Youtuce channel he is asked about the IPA and the G2 solution. He says....

G2 is basically IPA so I just put my latest bottle of G2 in my IPA bottle to top it up.

I didn't actually read any comments, thanks.

I may consider this on the weekend as his removal of G1 looks effortless.

I've bought some H2go which I'll be putting on this week. Looking forward to the results but worried about wiper judder. Any advice to avoid this?

I have just had a read of your thread when you applied it in Jan this year where the temp was approx 10c and curing time was 30 mins.

Tomorrow where I am it states it's going to be a max of 5c so would I be looking at an hours curing time? I appreciate that I'm not really applying it in ideal circumstances and temperatures but needs must.

Well I had a crack at applying this today. Managed to locate two lots of 15ml of G2 and some IPA so added them together in to a spray bottle to ease the process when removing excess residue.

So washed the car as per normal and dried the glass using a Gyeon Q2M silk drying towel - cracking towel.

I then used G4 polish and did the windscreen half at a time. I then used the G2 / IPA mix to aid the removal of the G4. I gave it an extra spritz of G2 and then set about applying the G1. Unfortunately I didn't have any G6 to apply as per the instructional video already posted.

I applied to G1 as per the video; straight lines then circular motion covering each half of the windscreen three times. I then made a brew and sat in the car with the heated screen on for 15 minutes and then used the G2 to aid removal.

Just as I was packing up the grey skies descended and the inevitable happened. So I thought I'd take the car out to see if it had worked.

Even at 20mph the bigger beads were moving off the windscreen, up to 30mph and it was clear I was going to be impressed. Then on to the 70mph dual carriageway and boom exactly as I remembered the product to be.

All in all, well impressed and despite it only being 5 degrees it's still cured nicely.

Cheeky bead shot:

Saul,yes it is advised on the colder days turning on the heater with the blowers directed to the windscreen to help with the curing.
I'll not add my list of glass coatings to the list,but if the op is looking for quick and easy then Car Pro H20 is simple an easy.
