Was going to as Ronnie about G/Techniq already being on the windows. I applied G1 around a year ago and for the first time today I noticed the snow foam sticking to the front window so it's time for another coat. Was thinking of trying hydrophobe but didnt know if anything special would be required prior to application. Also do Davy at ProCar have this in stock?

Super Hydrophobic Glass Coating now ready: 18 months and counting.

Still going strong here after 6wks Although I did do the following to ensure the screen was immaculate before I applied.

Wash
Clay
#0000 wire wool scrub
Polish with CeriGlass using a rotary with a rayon pad.
Eraser wipe to remove polish and oils
Second #0000 wire wool scrub
Neat IPA wipe 3 times using a Mint Merkin

Then applied as per instructions except I left to cure for 30mins and this was due to the air temp being 12 deg C. Glass was about the same using a laser temp reader.

Now I probably went over the top with the cleaning but as it had GTechniq G1 on it (which had been on for about 6mths and was starting to fail) I wanted to ensure I removed everything before I applied to ensure it had a fair crack of the whip.

So far so good and it trumps all the others with ease of application.

Cheers Guys. ~I am finding more and more prep of the glass is key with Hydrophobe Pro. As we did it to ensure fair testing I have to admit I never thought about what it was like if you simply applied it. As above Paddy thats the perfect way to apply it. Davey has a few in stock but I can post you one out no problem.

We are also looking at another one that needs no special prep and will last abot 6 months. as well as improving pro I also have found that if it can be left for about 30 minutes to fully cure it simply buffs off.
