    I posted the same information in the Virginia thread, but figured I’d make another since not everyone reads that one.

    Just a heads up for some of you who’ve been wanting to try Hydro2. I got a bottle of Gyeon Wet Coat, and gave it a try today.

    Gyeon Wet Coat 500ml https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00OORR2N8/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_3ArZBbS92C64Y

    This works just as well as Hydro2. Just as easy, just as effective. The bottle is already mixed for use. Just spray on, rinse off.
    The cost is $18.99 for half a liter, compared to $60.00 for half a liter of CarPro Hydro2. Now, the Hydro2 is concentrated, and is made to be heavily diluted, so it’s still a much better value in the long run.

    That said, at $18.99, the “barrier to entry” is much lower for Gyeon Wet Coat for those that want to try this type of product.

    I did two full size pickups and a full size SUV today, and still have probably a third of the bottle left. Like Hydro2, it doesn’t take much product.

    The instructions say to apply to a wet surface, small area at a time, and rinse immediately with high pressure. Would this be difficult to do? It seems like doing one panel, then rinsing, then doing the adjacent panel, you will be spraying over the previous panel again. Or does it not matter since the rinse will get that panel again also?

    It doesn’t matter. I generally do “sections” as opposed to a panel at a time.

    My process is to wash the whole vehicle. While it’s still wet, I’ll spray this on an area.

    Spray the product on the roof, rinse.
    Spray hood, grill, both front fenders, rinse.
    Front and passenger doors (one side), rinse.
    Sides of bed, rinse.
    Repeat on opposite side, rinse.
    Tailgate, rinse.
    Obviously the descriptions apply to a truck. A car or SUV follow the same pattern. Basically top, front, sides, rear, in that order.
    While doing this, I will periodically spray water on the areas I’ve already done to avoid any parts air drying. This is mainly because I have hard water that will leave spots if it dries on its own. Then I dry the whole vehicle.
    It also is a good idea to keep spraying the adjacent panels because the product will overspray onto them.
    The most important thing is to keep this stuff from drying in the vehicle before rinsing. If it’s hot outside you’ll need to do smaller sections. It was pretty cool yesterday, so I could do bigger sections at a time. If this stuff dries on the car before rinsing, you’re gonna have a bad time.

    Overall, Wet Coat or Hydro2 are the easiest sealants to apply. McKees and Waxaddict make the same thing. I’ve tried the McKees, and it really didn’t work as well. It didn’t spread or stick nearly as well as these two. I have a bottle of the Waxaddict version, but have not used it yet. I’ll update when I do.

    I hope I was clear and answered your questions. Still a little tired, so I may not be as sharp as I normally am. I did four vehicles yesterday, so I’m pretty whooped.

    If you can afford it, go with Carpro Hydro2. It’s triple the price, but it calls for a minimum of a 1:6 dilution. I suck at math, but I think that means it’s 50% cheaper in the long run. Wet Coat is a very good value though. I put it on three trucks, and had a third of a bottle left. If you’re only doing your truck, that bottle should last you a couple of years.
