Bought 2 packages yesterday and sprayed my entire undercarriage also lighting connections/wiring. Then the last thing i did was strip out the foam seals on my soft top and applied new weatherstrip treated with this stuff. The untreated used to soak up water then lean into the jeep. All in all easy peasy. But as was stated. This stuff has a bluish tint haze. Do if this bothers u dont do it!

Fearing that my original test was ruined because the product had not fully cured, I started over.

this time 3 coats base, and three coats top coat. 48 hours cure time was allowed at 70degrees or greater temperature for the whole time.

I gotta say this product has a serious Achilles heel - And they tell you about it in the paperwork, but I think they understate it - Soap will render it ineffective in seconds.

Another thing that is mentioned in the documentation and probably understated is abrasion. Seven light strokes with a clean scotch-brite pad visibly hurt its effectiveness.

This product is cool, but its not durable enough for me to use on my jeep. Glad I checked it out though, and I'm sure the technology will improve. But for now, if it can barely be touched, thats kind of useless.

Subscribed...Neat looking stuff. The Ultra Ever Dry is a bit pricey, even if I could get some.

If you need it to only work for a short time, its fine. I dunno, its kinda not ready for primetime based on my experience. I wouldn't put it on something I really care about. I have thought about spraying it on my hiking/fishing hat so the rain doesn't get in. But even in that case, I haven't actually done it.

I really think they went to market too early.

It truly is an interesting product....I just have not figured out a decent use for it yet.

Can't put it on shiny parts
No real good use on clothing
Defeated by soapy water

I wanna like it....

If you wanna make your undercarriage easier to clean after a wheeling trip, just spray it down with WD40 before you hit the trails. Works great for me and easy to do.

isn't wd-40 flammable? would it not matter after it dries? I'd worry about spraying the exhaust pipes. how about silicone spray?
i like the i idea of treating the undercarriage for winter and trails.

You'll hear the same thing from reviews on Amazon. I began considering this product a couple of months ago, but what you state seems to be true on pretty much any application. It won't last long, won't withstand cleaners, and can't hold up to abrasion.

Not too many practical applications.

They showed it being applied to a DirecTV dish in the commercial I saw on TV... Too bad as an installer I'm not going to invest the time or money on a job it would take to coat the dish, when I'm not going to be paid for doing it.

You can get the same effect for your dish using Pam (cooking spray)
