In DJ’s Mayo’s 22PLE review he discusses the benefits of 22PLE. I am going to go over some of the specifics of applying it. After the proper prep work and an Alcohol wipe down, you can then begin to apply 22PLE, I use the Pro version. Proper application is as follows: First, use a foam applicator in a crosshatch pattern. As you can see below, after the initial application of 22PLE there are high spots. These are created from going over the area more than once or just applying too much product. Those larger spots you see are the high spots, or rainbows as I have coined them. They look like IPA on the surface but wont evaporate, as this is a coating. They will need to be leveled using a Microfiber Towel. Simply use the weight of the towel and no pressure. You will find that at the end of your wiping strokes, whether it be on the same panel or the adjacent panel, there will tend to be leftover high spots that need to be re-leveled with the towel.
Pay special attention around emblems, door handles, and hard body lines. Often times these areas get excessive amounts of product, which can lead to areas that you miss leveling. The same goes for when you are coating wheels. Pay special attention around the valves and center caps. It is as easy as just lightly wiping them off with the Microfiber.
