Exo V3 revival, is this right ?

As my Exo v3 has faded away and going by Gtechniq’s FAQ’s I plan on hitting the car with W5 and as I cannot get any W6 for Friday BH Korrosol.
Plan is.........
Pre wash with W5
Wash & dry
But do I then hit the car again with undiluted W5 to give it chance to do its thing on a clean surface then power wash off and dry then go with the Korrosol for fallout.
Or Korrosol on a clean dry surface then power wash off and dry and hit it with the undiluted W5.
Hope that makes sense and I’m probably overthinking it

Cheers, Dan.

Hi,
W5 works great as a pre-wash (either neat or 4:1 ratio) prior to washing the vehicle to remove as much stubborn dirt as possible. I would then proceed to wash the vehicle with our G-wash shampoo or even Washing Up Liquid. Most of the time, this will give the coating a thorough clean & revive the beading (unless the coating needs topping up). If you wanted to, at this stage whilst clean but still wet you could use an iron & fallout remover to decontaminate the surface. This can also be gently agitated and then thoroughly rinsed before drying. Using our C2v3 spray whilst drying the vehicle ensures some lubrication for the drying towel and adds a fresh layer of protection

Thanks for the reply Adam.
I have G Wash so will go with that but out of interest what would washing up liquid achieve ?
I also have some C2 but will hold back on using it until i know the Exov3 has stopped doing its thing (applied in feb) and maybe needs topping up and will use some C2 as a stop gap until i can get some more Exo applied.

Cheers, Dan.

Washing up liquid is stronger so really cleans the coating well and works Great before a top up or to try and revive coatings once or twice a year. Gwash is more than capable of providing a good clean also. C2v3 can be used at any point and not just when a top up is needed. Works great as a drying aid or to add a bit of extra gloss & slickness.

W5 1-10 works phenomenally well on coated cars. Pre rinse, spray W5, leave for 5 mins and rinse. 95% of crap is off leaving only traffic film at best. Never needed to go less then 1-10

A little update, i used W5 to pre clean and its pretty dam good stuff so i will be defiantly continuing to use that
Washed the car with G wash then used the fallout and it has defiantly revived the Exo in places but unfortunately the bonnet, roof and some parts of the sides of the car the Exo seems to almost totally dropped off.
I have to admit i have been guilty of using some products that may of interfered with the longevity of the Exo since application in february so no complaints and with an application of C2v3 i will be good for a while yet especially with CSL underneath.
Thanks for all the help and info it is much appreciated
