    Rain throughout the curing process, what can I do?

    As the title, I have finished coating my car, and parked it in an underground public car park. It will be cured for 24hours tomorrow morning, but there also will be heavy rain for the next 8-10days. But since I have work and the car is needed, what can I do?

    To make matter worse, my own apartment car park has a big huge opening at the back, and rain drop gets on the rear end. It is expensive to park at a public car park 24/7

    I wished I had reload on hand, but I only have elixir with me right now. Will elixir do somewhat a similar job as reload?

    My question is will the coating be fine after 24hours to drive through heavy rain? What can I do ensure the coating doesn't fail?

    In this situation...

    Reload would be best.
    Elixir is not as strong as it is a QD

    How did it turn out?

    From the product page. Ideally you would want Reload and not elixir.

    After Tips:
    Keep surface dry for at least one hour after application (For best results keep dry 24 hours).
    Gently wipe any water off the surface during the first 24 hours after application.
    Avoid detergents and chemicals for 5 days after application.
    If it is dry and the air is clean outside then you may park the vehicle in direct sun after application to speed the curing.

    Use a sacrificial layer of Reload to save the coated surface from waterspotting.
