EXO V3 application issue

I have already applied CSL to the car on that has gone on without any issues and looks perfect.

Using the exact same techniq to apply EXO and it is leaving what look like holograms. Under the light no matter how much i wipe with a microfibre its like there is still residue because i can move the holograms around with a wipe of the MF. Tried using less product but still get the same issue.

What am i doing wrong?

Not sure what's wrong I'm afraid, but I can say I barely used anything at all to cover my car - you'd probably think I've not opened the bottle if you looked at it. Possible you have used more than you need to, I'm sure Rob will be asking shortly with a more expert answer

Difficult to say without experiencing your issue in person.

Are you attempting to wipe EXO off straight away as you in theory did with CSL?...if so wait a couple of minutes before removing the residue - 1 MF to remove the majority, 2nd MF to buff the area completely.

cheers

Chris

Yeah was using the same technique as the CSL. Applying the EXO and need wiping straight off.

Will try leaving it on for a minute as you say. Thanks Chris.

I don't think EXO needs "buffing" as such, you just need to remove the excess. Certainly on mine, it was just cover a panel or two, remove and move on. It does say on the instructions to remove "immediately" rather than wait as you would a wax

Ok so a 2nd MF to 'wipe over' the panel to remove any remaining EXO left after the initial removal.

cheers

I honestly wish it had been that easy.

Like i say with the CSL i had zero issues.

Tried the method Chris suggested. Coated a whole door (5 series), left for a minute or so. Wiped residue off and then a second MF to remove any excess. To the naked eye you would think its all gone. Under the light it was better than previous but still took another few attempts with the MF to get it perfect.

Same thing as in my original post. I could move the holograms around. Leaving it on the surface though certainly improved it. I still dont think i have got the correct technique. Literally watched every application video on youtube, so really struggling to know where i am going wrong with it.

I have finished the car but i just think the issues with the EXO mean its taken way longer than expected.

You need to use a new microfibre every couple of panels I just did my old mans 5 Series this weekend (ok was TAC Systems Sparkle) and this method worked perfectly. Maximum of 2 panels per cloth then run back over the whole car with a Peach Skin Microfibre. Also did not use super fluffy microfibres I just used the yellow Costco ones
