I have a test panel on my wing about 10" by 10" that I have tried the Johns 360 product. I was not brave enough to put it everywhere since it is not easy to remove. So far it is holding up and definitely makes cleaning easier. I have not done the full season test yet to see if it holds up. I will post once I have enough info to be of use but so far, so good. I also treated adjacent panels with A: Wax, B: Johns, C: Something from McFarlane that I cant remember. None worked as well or looked as good as the Johns 360 panel.
