OK, so still not had chance to wash the dirty beast. Hell however, hath frozen over. This morning was sub zero following some rain, which produced some nice beading shots:

Overall:


The Abyss:




The Chasm:




Not a huge update, but thought I'd share the shots I will add that it is interesting to note that after a decent rainshower, the difference in the 9 sections on the roof is quite remarkable. All being well, I shall wash the filthy harlot tomorrow and share the results.

Nice test Nick.

I must admit im having a little wax challenge on the bonnet of dads Cruiseliner (The Omega) and seeing how that works, and i'm also having a little bit of fun with waxes on mine.

Abyss is in both of them and its the one i can instantly see the beading and sheeting difference in...

Today I got it washed! Pre rinsed with Bane Blade in the pressure sprayer and then 2BM wash with Bane Blade (with my usual Megs microfibre mitt). Dried with my plush blue towel, then hosed over to produce the following photos:

Overall:


Abyss & 2 coats P32:


Abyss & 1 coat P32:


Abyss on its own:


2 coats P32:


1 coat P32:


Naked Paint:


Chasm & 2 coats P32:


Chasm & 1 coat P32:


Chasm on its own:


Now from my experience, the best water behaviour was from the naked LSP. Best protection? Well, multiple layers of protection must be better. The P32 on its own has very much reached the end of its protective life. The two dedicated LSP's are clearly still showing good protection (based on the presence of 'water behaviour'), which is always nice, even considering the snow and ice that has been taking its toll on the surface. Happy days here

Nice nick, but i think i prefer the behaviour of the products on their own... Might just be me been fussy, but i guess its just my personal preference.
Thanks for the write up tho, glad to see abyss in my collection

Me too with regard to the water behaviour. Granted, the gloss MAY be better with P32 (no glossmeter to confirm), but lets face it, we're all 'water behaviour aficionados' (or in other words, beading whores ).
