IMPORTANT - I used the v2 formulation (May 2018). Incredible water beading for my convertible top! I cleaned well with CarPro Reset, and nothing else. Let the top dry thoroughly. Shook well, and sprayed liberally all over. Before it could dry, I hit it again with a second coat. Let air dry for about 24hrs.

It's been about a month since I applied. I wash my car weekly. It poured down rain for about 6 hours yesterday and when I walked out of the office, my top was still beading like it was when the rain started. Amazing product!

I have used the 303 convertible top cleaner/sealer in the past, and this is 100% better. If I could post the images of the beading yesterday, I would, because I couldn't believe it! Great stuff!

Also, for prep, I didn't tape anything off this time, as I usually would with the 303 products. The over spray on the convertible top window, side windows, and windshield was easily removed the next day with Stoners Invisible Glass. The tiny bit that got on the paint came off with CarPro EcH2O diluted into waterless wash. There was no staining on the rubber around the convertible top.

Super easy and excellent results! Will use this stuff on the top annually now, and all my carpets/floor mats!

I followed instructions and i applied half of bottle on two cloth seats, very disappointed with results. Water does not repell.

Applied in a garage. Smells strong. Heavy application left some white powdery residue in some areas. Which washed off after a first rain and wipe off.
Very strong beading protection.

Works great beads off liquids from the fabric I have also use it on my kids strollers to avoid stains on the fabric parts so far so good ...make sure you let it air out the smell is mild but wears out Wish they sold the bigger size :/

I dont think I could recommend this product to anyone. Gtechniq did stand behind it and provided a credit for me, but the performance of this product is just not there. Not worth the effort, time or cost. We applied an entire bottle and then some onto a new 2014 corvette stingray top, followed the directions to a T. Client had us pick up his vette 7 days later for a wash and there was no repellent action at all. I understand a coating for fabrics is difficult due to the flex of the fibers and everything. Hopefully someday soon the formula will be revamped, improved and I can change this review!

This is a great product. I purchased this to use on a set of brand new floor mats for my subaru sti so there wasn't much cleaning needed on them besides a light vacuuming. Application is straight forward by spraying on in and even uniform coat and then letting it sit for a few hours. I did 3 coatings on the drivers mat and i will do less on the others as there not used as much. The water beads off like sealant on paint which means its a lot less likely to stain or absorb anything for that matter. There was no color change with application and only a slight chemical smell that didn't last long. The only thing I didn't like about the fabric guard is the price as its not cheap. I highly doubt that I will be able to do the entire interior of my car with the smaller sized bottle. I will be buying more in the future from you guys when and if you get the larger bottle.
