Very true. That's one of the reasons I put them around the sides, even though the durability testing isn't even when compared to the hood, the sides will showcase which product has the best sheeting.

Now we're talking! Looking forward to the updates.
I'm going with PNS, Finis Wax and that Crystal Coat stuff in no order.

Just a quick update,

Today I gave the car it's first wash. I will say that it was very clean overall, as it's been 30+ degrees every day for the past 2 weeks. There are some contestants that are showing some wear and tear on the hood, mainly from the heat, but also could be due to them being very very old. The sides of the car are holding up a bit better, so we'll see how things are looking at the 1 month update. I will also reveal which section is which product, cause I know not knowing is eating you all up on the insides. I will say now, that this test is really only a 3 or 4 horse race, and I genuinely do not know which one is going to take it.

Greetings everyone,

The 1 month update is almost here! The car has only been washed once so far, and will be washed for the update on Monday (happen to have the day off, which worked out quite well). As I stated previously, I will reveal which section is which product, so going forward we can track who is who.

Lets see some predictions for Best and Worst! If you want to try and number all 13, you can give that a go as well, but even I can't remember all of them without checking the cheat sheet.

One month update posted! I know I'm a day early but it just happens to work out better this way.

I'm pretty happy with my guesses. HD Wax looking good too.

Yeah, it's basically those 4 hanging in there with the tightest beads. Other products are sheeting well, drying the panel, but they've lost a lot of that rapid water behavior.
