When I had Xpel Ultimate installed I also had Opticoat put on the car. The car got dirty considerably faster than the first car. There's some construction going on down the street from me and they've been dragging dirt onto the road which has ended up on my car. I assumed the road construction was the cause of this accelerated rate of gathering dirt. Yesterday I washed the car and now I'm not so sure about my reasoning for the car getting dirty faster. I noticed that the top part of the car and the upper parts of the sides beaded immediately when they got wet. However, the lower portions of sides didn't bead. You'd have a sheen of water on them. I'm thinking this is not the way Opticoat is supposed to behave. I'm debating taking it back to my installer and asking but before I did this I wanted to seek some second opinions. Should a car with Opticoat bead all the way down the sides when wet? Or does some of the run off turn into a sheet and stay there?
